After a morning of Ford filled fun, we continued our travels eastward, to Niagara Falls, ready to drop the car back and then get ourselves to Toronto.

THE FIRST LINCOLN MEMORIAL | THE RUSSIAN DOLL OF ATTRACTIONS | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

Roadside attractions played a big role in our lust for road-tripping the US of A; at this point, we had already hit up Dinosaur Land and Foamhenge. Neither disappointed.   I didn’t have quite the same faith in the next one, but I was willing to be pleasantly surprised… Abraham Lincoln’s Birthplace. (Not quite an … Continue reading THE FIRST LINCOLN MEMORIAL | THE RUSSIAN DOLL OF ATTRACTIONS | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

A BEAUTIFUL HOTEL AND AN UGLY HANGOVER | NASHVILLE | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

The last post finished up in sweet little Lynchburg, the birthplace of Jack Daniels' Whiskey in Tennessee. The next post, on the other hand, starts where the drinking of Jack Daniels' tends to begin... Nashville.  I find picking favourites very difficult. I mean, why should you have to - opinions change so regularly, surely from one day to … Continue reading A BEAUTIFUL HOTEL AND AN UGLY HANGOVER | NASHVILLE | USA ROAD TRIP 2016
