Where now?

So, after visiting paradise on earth, what are we up to now?

Sunday the 24th of June we fly from Guayaquil, Ecuador to Los Angeles, USA.  We will rent a car for 3 weeks and (roughly) do the following route:

After the road trip, we fly to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to spend some time with Sean and Dawn, my host parents from the time I was an exchange student in Delavan, Wisconsin. We’ll be chilling, visiting family and most of all appreciate every minute we get to spend together!

On the 25th of July we take a plane to Brussels, putting us on Belgian soil on thursday the 26th.

We are thus entering our final month of travelling. For us this will be more like a normal, summer vacation. We are planning ahead, booking camping sites and hostels beforehand and we will also stick to these plans!
