Mid Way Point Route 66, USAHello Lovelies,
I’ve recently returned home after an uh-mazing trip across the USA with my boyfriend, so I’ve decided to plan a few ‘Travel Posts’, both so I can kind of re-live the memories but also, in a less selfish manner, share my knowledge and tips that I gained from this incredible trip!
To start the ball rolling, one of the first things I learnt was that planning a 2-month road trip requires so much time and organisation. You have to make sure your getting the best deals with flights, with the accommodation and the car hire, and you have to work out how much money you will need to comfortably allow you to travel for the time you want, and of course you want to plan where to go and what to do!
Now, I managed to book flights and the first few nights of accommodation and car hire, but after spending hours and hours scrolling through countless Pinterest ‘Travel’ boards in hopes to find ‘The Best Secret Places To Eat’ or ‘The Best Things To Do For Free’, I eventually realised, no matter how much I wanted to feel organised, it was impossible to plan our every move for 2 months. My boyfriend and I had a basic route planned, but we knew we would just end up going with the flow and we’d find stuff to do on the way, if we liked a place, we might stay there longer, if we didn’t, then we could just leave! There were various things we knew we definitely wanted to do, but I found that the most memorable and fun moments were the things and places you stumble on along the way, which you might not necessarily have known were there.
I’ll be posting blog posts about my trip in the next few weeks, some with tips on how to save money, some tips on places to go, things to see and some uh-mazing food we found whilst on our trip and lots more! I don’t think I’ll be able to show exactly just how incredible this trip was through my blog posts, but you just have trust me on this, and hopefully it will inspire you to travel, it’s something I would recommend any one to do, be it your on your own, with a group of friends or with your other half. Yes you need money and yes you gotta step outta your comfort zone just a litttttle bit, but let me tell you, it is SO worth it!
