I JUST CAN’T WAIT TO GET ON THE ROAD AGAIN
There are still so many places I have yet to write about or post pictures of from my European and Mediterranean cruise ship adventures. But, perhaps it’s because we’re on our way back to U.S. soil or that I’m simply reminiscing that I’ve decided to dedicate this post to my summer 2011 road trip across the United States. There’s no time I feel happier or more free than when I’ve got a car, an open road, no place to go, no set time to get there, and no designated time to leave. I lose track of the time, the day, the mileage, and when I’ve last showered!
The best part about this road trip was the fact it wasn’t planned; I set out from Ohio with plans to drive nine hours south to visit the music epicenters Nashville and Memphis and then return back to Ohio. But once I visited both places I realized I didn’t want the trip to end. So I decided it wouldn’t. I ended up spending two months traveling the country by car with only enough belongings meant for a few day’s trip!
Now that I’ve practically been all over the world, I can easily say the United States has some of the most beautiful, breathtaking, and varied landscapes anywhere. The pictures below should attest to this!

Here’s each stop we made along the way:
Madrid, New Mexico, which was just simply awesome.
