A most exhilarating journey! Carolina: Cruising to an American Dream as a travel book is a fitting ode to the RV lifestyle – a lifestyle that few people dare to lead, and a pipe dream for many Americans. It is also a telling of the author’s inner journey. While vicariously navigating from one fascinating place to another, picking up interesting facts about America’s noble past and exciting prospects, readers get a glimpse of how the Colborns transitioned from the driven life to the more laid-back RVing mode. The subplot involving the ups and downs of an interracial marriage seamlessly weaves itself into the chapters and makes this a travel book like no other.

Fascinating!!!  Esguerra-Colborn shares her experiences--from practical "How-to" advice for living in an RV and getting around the US and parts of Mexico to personal wisdom gained from years on the road with a new husband in her new homeland--with wit, enthusiasm, and candor.  I think she does a great job balancing the practical and the personal.  A native of the Philippines, the author brings a fresh eye to our big country.  She helped me to experience America through a new lens.  What a fun adventure!

Carolina: Cruising To An American Dream is a very enjoyable read.  Carol and Bill’s RV adventures around the United States, Mexico and Canada are presented in a very informative, enjoyable and sometimes humorous way.  Being an rver myself I identify with many of the challenges they have faced and the great enjoyment of seeing this beautiful country.  Carol has done a great job with her first book after several years of blogging their travels to a large audience.  You will enjoy this book.

In CAROLINA: CRUISING TO AN AMERICAN DREAM, you will be introduced to a variety of places in American states, Canada provinces, and Mexican states. One can relate to places he or she is familiar with in the story. If travelling is not affordable as of this time, this is the book for you. This is one of the best reference materials how you will plan your retirement with your special someone. The author, Carolina Esguerra Colborn is a former jet-setting Filipina executive who is a success icon in her field but longing to love and be loved. She addressed  this concern with an early retirement and settling in America to fulfill her dream. Lucky to find the right man, they planned to spend their life together RVing.  The author tells the reader how to manage that kind of life, the costs that will be incurred and tools to arrive at the decision. But there is more to that in the story. My tears fell when Carol was ignored by the sales agent during the presentation when the couple was planning to replace their RV with a class “A”.  I was moved because I know the author many years back and she doesn’t deserve this treatment. Even if I do not know her, I guess I will still cry because there is a Filipina value in me. There was a lot of fun, humor, horror and trials during this journey. There are several health concerns along the line but this incident made me cry again. Bill had a heart attack one day and was forced to drive the car himself because it would be more stressful for him to see Carol drive. A heart catheterization was scheduled the following morning. I know how Carol feels because she is all by herself at that time. And what will she do if something wrong happens to Bill? I found the book to be a thought provoking read that included an informative travel accounts spiced by episodes happening in real life.

Carolina:Cruising to an American Dream is a truly enjoyable read. The joy that the author experienced comes through as you go through the pages. It is a unique perspective in that the author clearly is well traveled and is able to draw from her experiences of having lived in a different country . The family and marriage experiences of the author enhanced the enjoyable narrative of the book.
