Road to Nowhere

Looks like the moon, no?

Looks like the moon, no? ...opined the receptionist as we arrived at our hotel in Reykjavik. From the little that we had seen on our way from the airport, it was hard to argue. Spectacular in its bleakness, I had a good feeling about Iceland. According to What3words,...

Day 6 – Elvis has (largely) left the building

Memphis to Chattanooga Today could be a struggle. We started off with a trip to the pharmacy to get some drugs for the poorly one and I can feel whatever lurgy he has burrowing its way into me. Still, a trip to Graceland beckoned so we manned up and hit the road. The...

Day 11 – On the Trail of the Lonesome Pine

Pigeon Forge to Roanoke Time for the return leg back to DC. Goodbye to the South and thanks y'all! An epic drive today. Could have been more epic as we had intended to do the entire route via the Blue Ridge Parkway but, once it became apparent that this would cause us...

No sleep ’til Laughlin

4:30am but my body is insisting that it's lunch time. No more sleep in the the City of Night I suspect. Could be an early start... Time to scope out that all American breakfast...

Day 5 – Ice Ice Baby

I have clearly made a rookie error. Every time I wax lyrical about the views, they get eclipsed the next day. So it is again as we drive up the remarkably picturesque Icefields Parkway towards the Columbia Icefield. We are trying to take some photos en route, but not...

Day 5 – Look at that view … meh

Zion to Brian Head via Bryce Up in the mountains at the moment. Nice to see some greenery for a change. Can feel the altitude though. Have been noticing a certain shortness of breathe on occasions and then realised that most of the places we have been visiting are 7...
