Although not there yet I am researching how to get to my missing states. North Dakota, Nebraska, Utah, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Hawaii are my focus now. It will take at least three visits to achieve this so from time to time I spend a while map looking and distance planning. I don’t know why I never realised this before but instead of trying to … Continue reading Tri State Markers
Every time I stay in a hotel or eat in a restaurant or visit a significant attraction – especially when abroad from the UK – I try and leave an honest review of what I have experienced. I am amazed by the number of readers that they receive. I have been asked direct questions via Trip Advisor and actually see the sense of the travelling … Continue reading Trip Advisor – USA Road Trips by Max
Recently we visited Disney Springs, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and The Magic Kingdom. We were lucky with the weather and although armed with Niagara Falls Ponchos they weren’t required.

I wouldn’t consider myself obsessive but it became apparent that we seemed to come home with one, two or three things from each visit. Fridge Magnets – I have some from our first visit to California … Continue reading Collections from 44 States
My personal experience is that it is cheaper to eat out than purchase meals or the ingredients for meals from a supermarket.

Michael Portillo has one of the best jobs ever! He and his little Appleton’s book get to travel and experience America by rail. His obvious enjoyment in presenting the history of his destinations and how they affected modern America is infectious. He is a retired Politian and yet he presents in an informative and often humorous style. I love his obvious British awkwardness but he … Continue reading Great American Rail Journeys – BBC2
