In her first published book, Carolina Esguerra Colborn chronicles over four years’ worth of travel with her husband, Bill, throughout the United States, and parts of Canada and Mexico. Carolina: Cruising to an American Dream is a travel book, a fitting ode to the RV lifestyle – a lifestyle that few people dare to lead, and a pipe dream for many Americans.
Friends will remember Carol as the high-flying Filipina executive who held top posts in the Philippine business and academic scene before she relocated to the Land of Uncle Sam. She was President/CEO of BayanTrade, Managing Director of SAP Philippines, Deputy Commissioner of the BIR, General Manager of MegaLink, Vice-President of DAP, and was once a Senior Project Manager of Andersen Consulting and Marketing Manager of the Institute of Advanced Computer Technology.
Her new calling card now reads: Carolina Esguerra Colborn. Wanderer. Writer. Wife.
Carolina: Cruising to an American Dream 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.
“The American Dream” has always been regarded in light of materialistic ideals. Fame and fortune as payback for hard work. America as a place of bountiful opportunities. In Carolina: Cruising, the author presents yet other facets of that dream that she, herself, achieved — finding a fulfilling and loving relationship in this country and embracing American values without cutting her Filipino roots.
