The end. Finito. Farewell. Washington D.C. marked the final few days of our 180-days-around-the-world adventure. In many ways, we felt ready to go home. That is until the very dawning realisation of reentering the real world crashed over us!
Bostonians speak funny. And that’s coming from a Brummie and whatever-someone-from-Nottingham-is-called. We’re used to unusual accents. But Baw-stan’s drawl is something else!
Towns along Route 66 almost died when an Interstate was built through Arizona. Locals were on the verge of destitution - until one of them decided to do something about it...
We couldn't come all this way and not come to LA, and although we found some gems, in the main we found it to be a vast, trashy touristy hell hole!
Thought California was always a sunny surfers paradise? So did we, until we set off on our road trip and found out we’d picked entirely the wrong time of year!
We weren't 'Sleepless in Seattle', more 'Sh*tfaced in Seattle!', but then it was Chris' birthday! How fortunate then for our hangovers this is the city where Starbucks was born, & we made two new friends who showed us all the sights worth seeing! But it's not only the world's largest coffee chain this city has given to the world...
This may be controversial... but from start to finish, we felt milked by Machu Picchu. It cost us the best part of £800 over 2 days. Are the Peruvians ripping everyone off? Can you really blame them? Or could there be a cheaper way of doing it?
Buenos Aires is a remarkable city, unique in South America. But its abiding memory for us is the time we narrowly averted disaster after picking up someone else's backpack from our hostel and nearly flying off with it!
When we found out we would be driving past the Round the Twist lighthouse down the Great Ocean Road we had to visit, but we never knew it'd lead us 12,000 miles home!
