The response on social media and within the comments section of my first road trip blog post has been fabulous so I thought I’d follow it up with some other stories and genres that I captured while in the USA in May. I’m starting with our first journey of the holiday on Route 1 from Los Angeles to San Francisco. I’ll come back to Chicago later
I know nothing about the politics of the USA but I do know that California is expensive. We paid $6 for a bottle of Bud in California and $2 a bottle in other states. Petrol or ‘gas’ prices varied by as much too. This mattered because we filled the tank every day of our trip. Most of the time gas was below $3.50 per US gallon but occasionally it was $6.50 a US gallon for no apparent reason. Don’t let the details put you off because the places we went to and the people we met are amazing.
We didn’t have much time in San Fran but we did take in a night (dusk) tour of Alcatraz. It was well worth a visit and exceeded my expectations in just about every way.
I want to go back. I will go back, but for now fabulous memories will suffice. If you’ve got this far thanks for your patience. Please feel free to comment.
