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!
This was the second to last stop on our round the world trip - and it was EPIC, including sights, celebs, plenty of cocktails, and hanging in Brooklyn!
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!
Tina Fey, Bill Murray, Steve Carrell, Amy Poehler, Mike Meyers, Dan Aykroyd, John Candy. Is there a comedian on this list you don’t LOVE? They’ve all got one thing in common; a comedy improv school in Chicago called Second City. And these two residents of Britain’s second city had to pay it a visit.
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...
The middle of our road trip heralded one of our biggest arguments so far, Chris was paranoid about hungry bears and horror stories of them ripping open cars and camper vans like tin cans! James told him not to be stupid…
After months of baking sunshine and missing nearly all of the Great British winter back home, we decided to go in search of snow - and boy did we find it (& get cold and wet!)
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?
After nearly 3 and a half months of non stop travelling and 2 weeks in Bolivia at high altitude, it was only a matter of time before one of us came a cropper, and despite his smugness about ‘having done all this before in 2007’ it was Chris who bit the dust first!
We knew being in South America for Easter would be a spectacle, but some of the traditions & processions we saw were just downright weird!
