Tuesday Travels introduces us to Carol Mellema
Carol, husband Jim and their 3 fur babies travel the United States in their RV. She’s a fantastic photographer, but I wont steal her thunder you’ll be able to see it in her pictures she is sharing. I will be dropping all of her links at the end, but I did notice that on her site you can actual purchase her photos. She does excellent pictures of nature and so much more. It was great to get to know her through her beautiful gift that she shares through her lens.
Please introduce yourself & tell us what you do.
Hello I’m Carol Mellema. My husband and I and our 3 hairy dogs full time RV the United States. I am a professional photographer and Hubby has a business drop shipping supplies to printing companies.
How many trips do you average in a 24 month period?
US or International?
United States in our “traveling” home.
Favorite destination so far?
There are so many to choose from, but I would have to say my favorite destination so far has been Sedona, Arizona. The red rocks are just amazingly beautiful, and there’s nothing prettier than a desert sunrise!
Friendliest country / state on a whole?
Texas or Tennessee
Best food? Tell us about your favorite meal, type of new food you experienced, places to try and what not to eat?!?!?
Mexican food in south Texas is a favorite.
One place that holds a favorite memory?
There are just SO many! It’s hard to pick just one. Northern Minnesota’s Voyageurs National Park will always be my favorite memory, because I have been going there since I was a child with my own parents and sisters and brothers. It’s a beautiful area of pristine lakes, air so clean that smells of pine trees, and great fishing with my family. As I have gotten older, we have shared this area with our children, and maybe some day with their children too, just as my grandparents and parents shared it with me.
Solo or with someone?
With my husband; and dogs most of the time.
Prefer camera or just shoot pictures with phone?
Camera! It’s what I do!
Funniest thing that happened here or while traveling to / from here?
When husband was trying to empty the black tank at a public dump and dumped poop on the ground. Gross!
Tips on traveling or navigating while you are there?
Fill your crock pot in the morning, drive all day, and dinner is ready when you get there!
If you picked anywhere else to live where & why?
We do have a home in Tennessee that my 2 adult sons rent from us. Moved from Chicago area because of high taxes!
What is your best suggestion on what to pack? What time of year were you there?
I don’t pack – I live in my transportation, LOL. I feel sure that Carol keeps a variety of items close at hand since they hit such vast weather changes with all of their travels. Hats, raincoat, shorts, sweatshirts, ect. That is a blessing when your closet roles with you!
#1 place to go you haven’t been; if you have been, why #1 for return?
Alaska! It is still on our list.
