We are a family of four from Brighton in the UK. We are doing a 'big trip' next year from London to Asia to Australia and on to the US for a campervan (RV) trip from LA, up to Alaska and back to NYC. Our kids will be 7 and 10 when we arrive in New York City. Our son George is the older one and our daughter Ruby the younger; they are very excited about the whole trip and have never been to the US before. It will be all new to them. We often take self-catering accommodation when we travel and are used to looking after ourselves, (website hidden) etc. We like a bit of independence and a homely setting. I am a freel;ance business psychologist and my husband Alex is a software architect who normally works in the City of London.
