to travel across Route 66, the mother road, right across America in a convertible car.
The trip saw us stop for a few days with relatives in Washington DC first before getting a connecting flight to Chicago to pick up our car. Then, after a quick detour to Iowa to visit more relatives we headed down through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. We covered well over 3,000 miles in 16 days - it was incredible. We even threw in a quick detour into Nevada to visit the Hoover Dam and stayed in Las Vegas for a couple of nights (never again) and stopped off at the Grand Canyon. We also travelled down to San Diego after visiting L.A. and shoehorned a trip to Death Valley too.
We have so many fantastic memories, I still can't believe it was 6 years ago. What made the trip even more memorable was there was a random freak snow storm in Texas one day then it was boiling hot the next day! This is when my love affair with America started.
