BLUE SKIES, BASEBALL AND THE BEAN | CHICAGO | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

After our beautiful morning of food, glorious food, we were left to our own devices in the Windy City. As per every other stop on our road trip, it was carefully planned for a day of organised fun, fun, fun. Sadly, not every plan comes to fruition in the way you hope... https://www.instagram.com/p/BGCR4SMPgrA/?taken-by=nai_192 We ended the … Continue reading BLUE SKIES, BASEBALL AND THE BEAN | CHICAGO | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

FOAMHENGE | GREAT SMOKIES | VLOG | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

Happy Travel Tuesday! Today I'd like to present the newest in our series of vlogs produced during our USA / Canadian Road Trip. This one takes place during our journey between Shenandoah Valley, to Great Smokies National Park. We did a quiz, sang some songs, and saw some foam. The usual. It'd mean a lot … Continue reading FOAMHENGE | GREAT SMOKIES | VLOG | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

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

FOAMHENGE | ROADSIDE ADVENTURES | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

Please note that since the time of writing this, Foamhenge has moved location and is now only accessible via Cox Farms in Centreville. In between Shenandoah and Great Smokies National Park is a magical place, built on top of a hill, behind the trees is... Foamhenge. And yes, it is what you think it is; … Continue reading FOAMHENGE | ROADSIDE ADVENTURES | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

HIKING IN SHENANDOAH NATIONAL PARK | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

After an early morning filled with the excitement of picking up our rental car and entering a land of dinosaurs, you might think it was about time for a rest. Nope, instead we did the exact opposite; after checking in to Skyland and getting changed, we went for a long ol' hike. Rose River Falls  … Continue reading HIKING IN SHENANDOAH NATIONAL PARK | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

WASHINGTON DC TO SHENANDOAH NP | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

The fourth day of our trip came around incredibly quickly; we’d spent a solid weekend in DC, and had a lot of fun, but we were ready to pick up the car to hit the road. At 8am sharp we left the hotel, which wasn’t the easiest seeing as we were still marginally jet lagged … Continue reading WASHINGTON DC TO SHENANDOAH NP | USA ROAD TRIP 2016
