The truly interesting thing about traveling with Dad is the food. Growing up he told me “all food is good or it would not be food”. And I must admit, he will eat most anything whether he likes it or not; still it’s fun watching him try something new for the first time.
It is not often that my father travels very far from his home, a small farming community in central Pennsylvania. He’s in his seventies and feels comfortable staying in familiar surroundings. So I was shocked when I heard he and my mother where driving to Arizona to see the Grand Canyon, never seeing it myself, I had to meet them. Dad had been talking about the Grand Canyon for decades.
