Today I am going to be talking about something a little different but it’s something that gets my heart racing and puts a giant smile on my face.
My husband and I did a big BIG trip in March this year- we spent 6 weeks travelling around the world… Tahiti, USA, Iceland, Paris, London, Dublin and Tokyo. It was a amazing experience, one that we had been saving a year for and was sort of meant to be our last big trip abroad before settling down and trying to buy a house of our own.
HA! Well then I won Miss Viva Las Vegas and we knew we had to at least return to Vegas in 2016. Then, in what seems to be true to our trip planning style (mainly my fault), it snowballed from just Vegas/LA to…
‘oh, we should go down to New Orleans’
‘And we’ve got to spend a couple of days at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando’
‘If we are down in the south, we might as well visit Memphis’
‘LET’S ROAD TRIP BETWEEN ALL OF THESE PLACES!’
… and so, now we have 5 nights in Las Vegas for Viva, 2 weeks in the southern states, back up to LA for 5 nights and then 3 nights in Tahiti on the way home.
I am SO EXCITED!
One of the best parts about having a holiday in the works is planning it. In the last few days, I’ve been researching places we can visit and stay during our road trip between Orlando-Memphis-New Orleans.
Google has been great but even better were the suggestions from followers on Instagram! While I’m sure big cities like Atlanta and Nashville would be awesome to visit, I’m conscious of the fact that we already have 3 big cities in the south to see, so I’d like any stops on our road trip to be smaller towns. I’ve learnt that trying to cram too much in (especially big cities!) can be exhausting.
Currently, I am just trying to plan out our itinerary and researching accommodation. Then I’ll look into things to do and see, it’s such a exciting time and so nice to have something to look forward to. I highly recommend looking at TripAdvisor for reviews and AirBnB for cheaper accommodation.
I’m most excited about these things so far…
