We are camping alongside the younger, Swiss version of ourselves: Karen and Silva bought their camper in Canada, drove it from that country’s east coast to west then down I-5 through Washington, Oregon and California. And somehow they’ve arrived in Panama less than three months later. They’ve got a schedule to keep, meaning jobs to return to. Which surprises me. But apparently bosses there actually value the life experience travel brings to their employees. Language skills, maybe, but more importantly the diplomacy, flexibility and resourcefulness that come along with fabulous stories.
