I am off on a travel adventure with my family for the next 3 weeks to the USA. Our first stop is Honolulu, Hawaii and then we are off the Dallas, Texas to start our road trip. Hello USA!
If you have any suggestions for places to see and stop at along our route I’d really love to hear them. I’m also hoping to see as much local handmade and art as possible along the way so if you know of any great markets or shops that sell great handmade please let me know.
Above is our the ‘big picture’ of our holiday. It’s seems like a really REALLY long journey from Sydney, Australia when looked at on the world map! Below is our the route for the road trip portion of our holiday. A couple of years ago my family and I spent three months on a road trip through the USA mostly following Route 66 with some detours along the way. This time we are stopping at places we really wanted to see but missed or that we didn’t get to see enough of last time. From Chicago we fly back to Hawaii for a couple of days then back home to Sydney, Australia.
The initial spark of interest in returning to the USA this time was our oldest sons desire to meet his pen pal of many years who lives in Des moines. We’ve met Lachlan’s friend on webcam several times and she is lovely. I think I’m looking forward to meeting her in person almost as much as Lachlan is. I’m crossing my fingers the meeting works out well.
My husband Howard has set up a travel blog on travelpod.com to keep those who are interested up to date on our travels so pop over to our travel blog to see where we are and what we are up to.
A quick note:
- Firstly my apologise regarding Jane’s Apple being down for the last couple of day. We had some technical difficulties concerning our host provider.
- Secondly I’m putting Jane’s Apple shops on Etsy and MadeIt on hold for the time I am away. I’m sorry for any inconvenience. I may well be able to respond to any questions regarding Jane’s Apple items while I’m travelling but please expect delays in response time.
