Some thoughts we’ve had after 13 days back in the U.S. and 96 hours living in a 378-square-foot trailer with two kids and a cat:

  • Dang, this trailer is huge!
  • Dang, this trailer is tiny!
  • Why are there so many cars on the road and where are all these people going?
  • Why are there so many people in general?
  • People in the U.S. do not know how to drive.
  • Right turn on red is scary.
  • A travel trailer bathtub is the perfect size to a hold a litter box. And nothing else.
  • No, we’re not on a boat. That’s just the trailer suspension swaying whenever someone walks down the middle of it. Or sits down too hard on the couch. Or rolls over in bed.
  • What is this thing called air conditioning?
  • Refrigerators are big, even in a trailer.
  • Command hooks are my best friend.
  • One-ply toilet paper is not horrible.
  • If you forget to turn on the water heater in the morning, you will take a cold shower.
  • Most American restaurant food is overpriced and not very tasty.
  • My kids would gladly live on Chick-Fil-A.
  • Goodwill is not an adequate replacement for antique shopping in Europe.
  • Wal-Mart is an evil necessity.
  • Dollar Tree is awesome.

  1. Once you make it to the PNW, you have to look for a Value Village (or in the DC area it’s called Savers). Excellent thrift store!

    So excited for you and the great adventure!
