Before setting out on our 7 month adventure, there were 2 stops I was looking forward to most, one was a place I’ve always wanted to go and knew I’d love as soon as we got there. That was New York. The other was Tokyo, which was brilliant too.
The main attraction to Washington for most visitors are the memorials & parliamentary buildings. If that’s what your looking for then this is the place to be! We spent the whole of our first day trying to see them all.
Still hungover from our night out in Vancouver we landed in Chicago and managed to find our hostel in Greek town, John’s face immediately lighting up at the sight of all the kebab shops around. Surprise surprise we were too early to check in so once again we dumped our bags and wondered into the…

After spending time in Memphis, home of the blues and birth place of rock n roll, it was time to move on, and sticking to the musical theme, we hit New Orleans; the home of Jazz, the big easy!
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.
