It was finally time to visit the home of the blues and the birthplace of Rock n Roll! Memphis, Tennessee. Also home to that singer you may have heard of, they call him the King. For 3 nights we partied with the best of them!
After a somewhat monumental 35 hour bus journey from Vegas (it should have been 30), we finally made it to Dallas, and having not made any real plans we would leave quite surprised.
After an eventful bus journey with Greyhound we finally arrived in the magical world of Las Vegas. Some of the hotels on the strip are quite reasonably priced so we treated ourselves and stayed at the very top of the strip in the Stratosphere.
Well we did it, we landed in LA after possibly the worst flight of the trip so far. Already annoyed, and Jem nursing a migraine, we then had to endure the worst immigration & security clearance or the trip so far. Welcome to America.
After our time in chilly New Zealand, it was time to ditch the thermals & hop on a short flight over to Fiji for some more tropical weather. We were immediately hit by the heat when we landed, I love that feeling!
Arriving in Auckland for our final few days in New Zealand, we had plenty planned for us by our hosts plus a day or so to get sorted before we moved on again to Fiji. It was also where we’d part company with out JUCY camper van.
