Cowboy Country

By: Simon Jakowicz on 26th Oct 2013

Goodbye cowboy country, as much as Texas hasn't been a bad state to travel, it hasn't been quite as thrilling as most of the other places we have been. Since my last blog post, we have been in Dallas and to a small town called Arlington. We couch sur...

La Nouvelle-Orléans

Magic People, Voodoo People

Back Down South

By: Simon Jakowicz on 11th Oct 2013

It's tough staying up to date with the blog so I'm going to summarise our latest two stops; Nashville and Atlanta into one article. Nashville, the home of country music, we knew from the beginning of the trip, that if we wanted to see live music,...

The home of the king and music city

By: Glenn Goodhall on 11th Oct 2013

We decided to only stay one night in Memphis because we only wanted to see Graceland, sun studios and Beale street. First up was Graceland and a tour around Elvis's pad. Elvis's pad was like a bachelors pad, lots of different rooms for entertain...

Cold Wind Blows

By: Simon Jakowicz on 03rd Oct 2013

Chicago town, the home of blues, Tesco pizza and wind! The weather was brilliant in the day, just like the whole trip has been. But at night, just like those old wives say, it actually does get a bit windy and a bit nippy too. Chicago is a really pre...

Windy City

By: Glenn Goodhall on 03rd Oct 2013

After a short four hour drive we were in Chicago, known as the Windy City we must have planned it right because all we got was sun. We got our first taste of American sport when we went to see the Chicago White Sox. Equipped with my rounders kno...
