The following year, wanting to undertake a long-haul journey, so we left France and set off for the other side of the Atlantic. This time, for our discovery of the Americas, we took our own faithful motorhome, but this involved a lot of prior preparation… The most significant steps were finding a carrier, insurance to cover us once across the Atlantic, delivering our vehicle to the port of Anvers, in Belgium, and all the administrative formalities linked to the sea crossing. We alsoexperienced problems of a mechanical nature mid-way across the U.S.A., which largely led us to reflect that: when it comes to American mechanics, nothing beats an American vehicle…
It was with these experiences still fresh in our minds that the idea of creating SwapTheRoad was born… What if we could travel differently? What if the simple fact of owning a vehicle could allow us to travel anywhere in the world, but ultimately without it?!?
