After nearly two weeks driving west from Texas, we saw the sea once again when we reached the Pacific coast. We stayed for a few nights in beautiful San Diego and then headed north to drive the first stage of the Pacific Coast Highway enjoying the sights on our way to our next destination, San Francisco.
On our journey south from Flagstaff on Route 66 to San Diego, we stopped off at the beautiful desert town of Sedona. A quad biking experience was a fantastic way to explore the area.
No US road trip would be complete without taking in some of the most famous road in the world. We followed Route 66 from just east of Amarillo, Texas to Flagstaff, Arizona.
After a busy week in New Orleans, and six weeks already on the road, we were looking forward to some time on the beach in Galverston and then exploring some more of the Lone Star State. However, our plans to explore Texas were scuppered by Covid…
As the temperature rose we arrived in perhaps the most vibrant city of our trip – New Orleans! We loved the vibe, the fusion of cultures, the southern soul food, the beautiful green spaces, the architecture and, more than anything else, we loved the music.
The next stage of our journey was from Nashville to New Orleans and included a road trip within a road trip as we made our way down the scenic Natchez Trace Parkway with detours to explore a couple of stops on the Mississippi Blues Trail.
Next stop Nashville! In early May 2022, we arrived in the so-called Country Music Capital of the World excited to learn about the history and diversity of country music that exists and about the civil rights history of the area.
