Caroline and Marcus had arrived in the US a couple of days earlier, most of their two-week sojourn in front of them. They described their route over the next 10 days. There was going to be a lot of driving. A lot.
I knew where they lived in the UK. Each day they were going to drive a distance equivalent to what they did in a month at home.
Each day they were going to see a unique piece of nature the likes of which they would not see at home.
I knew that somewhere near their home their were tourists from the other side of the world seeing everything that they had in their backyard.
