Dream Traveler Africa is sold in stores along the California coast
Book 1 was released in spring 2013. We, the Gates family, drove our 1977 VW bus along the California coast to introduce the book to bookstores and boutiques.
Ophelia, the bus
Our next stop was Sausalito. It's just north of San Fran.
And that's the tour bus, Ophelia!
After San Fran, we headed down to Monterey on a Tuesday to catch our favorite Farmer's Market.
It's been another long day.
And we started south again ...
To stay at Kirk Creek campgrounds in Big Sur. Another one of our favorite spots!
Belly Laughs & Good Times
Wine tasting! This is all a part of the job!
San Luis Obispo, CA
We ended our trip at Famous State Street in Santa Barbara.
A week after the release of Dream Traveler Africa, the Gates family hung a sign in their 1977 VW bus and traveled the California coast to introduce the book to stores.
