I am not allowed to show you any pictures of our 2007 Honda Accord.
But imagine, if you will, what a high-mileage vehicle that regularly shuttles three high-energy kids between school, music lessons and play dates looks like, and you’ll have a good idea.
If Mater from the Pixar film Cars comes to mind … well, you’re not that far off.
Our car has been loved to death. There are candy wrappers and empty water bottles strewn across the back seat, and I can’t remember the last time it was washed. Right now, it looks like it survived a riot in London. It’s embarrassing. Which is why Kari won’t let me show you the car. Read more “Road trip update: What would you drive across the country?”
Note: As part of our Away is Home project, I’ll be offering regular updates on our whereabouts and asking for your travel advice. Why? Because you know more about travel than I do.

So it’s north for us, for a few reasons. First, you can’t really drive much farther to the south here in Florida without hitting water. But also, we have family up there, and I have always want to return to Québec, ever since I attended a conference there back in 2002. Read more “Road trip update: Bonjour, Québec?”
