East Coast USA Road Trip Days 3 & 4

On the 3rd day of our USA Road Trip we left New York nice and early so we missed the rush hour traffic, which they say is between about 6:00 am and 10:00 am (although over there pretty much any time feels like rush hour) – however 6:00 am was still fairly clear.  We headed […]

Iceland Road Trip Days 1 – 4

We went on an Iceland road trip in October 2015, which is a great time to visit Iceland.  It is not yet super cold, it doesn’t ran every day and it is just outside the peak tourist seasons which means everything is a little quieter – perfect!  There will be a number of posts about […]
