When we travel, our goal is to stay in each place for at least a month. Not only do you get a better rate at the RV park, but you have a chance to really experience the culture of the community you are residing in.
My husband calls this Immersion Traveling. We spent two months in Llano, TX and in that time I immersed myself and my children in the community, or at least part of it. Mainly the public library.
While we were there the Summer Reading Program was going on; I knew that I wanted my children to be a part of it and the library also needed volunteers. So ‘Voila’ here is my chance to not only involve myself in the life of Llano but my children as well.
Now of course there won’t always be opportunities for immersion, but if you’re looking for it something might present itself.
Thanks to our purposeful joining in we got to know the people and culture of Llano and if we happen to pass that way again it won’t be as strangers.
