Our experience of the mighty ol’ Texas was a bit of a whirlwind from start to finish, consisting of crazy weather, good food and impromptu tattoos! It was one of the States that I’ll particularly remember because of the memories (however strange) I made there. So if you fancy reading about what I got up…… Continue reading Texas: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

There were several coolers in the trailer, filled with pre-sliced ham, cheese, salad and a variety of spreads, which we crammed inside wraps or slices of bread. And this lunch was eaten pretty much anywhere. Sometimes as a picnic,…… Continue reading From Badlands to Mount Rushmore
