Welcome to the adventures of a couple of vagabonds. In 2009, after realising that the USA was led by an unprejudiced President for the first time in too long, we decided to visit our friends and cousins. And we fairly soon wished that we had just ignored the xenophobes in charge, and come sooner. Because, by and large, the Americans are wonderfully engaging, friendly, open and well informed - not like the reputation abroad at all! Ironically, we, after all, were the xenophobes.
Since then, in 2011, 2013 and Christmas 2013, we've done our best to make up for lost time.
This latest trip, we've decided to explore a bit more of early USA - we plan to see how the jolly old original colonies are getting on!
If you want to revisit the earlier trips, just use the appropriate tab above, or:
Seattle to New York 2009
San Diego to Salt Lake 2011
Dallas to Silverton 2013
Why do we keep coming back?
We'll try to answer:
