Travel Blogger Friday 40

Travel Blogger Friday 40

I have more travel ideas swimming around in my head than I’m game to tell my mother for fear of being disowned, especially since I’m the favourite right Mum :). One such idea I will share because I think everyone should do it, is to drive across a country. Maybe Australia, Canada or the UK I really can’t decide I just know I’d love to do it.

Someone who is driving themselves around the United States however is Christy & Kali from While I’d prefer something a little easier to park than a motorhome I just love the idea of going wherever you please and not having to rely on someone else to get you from A to B.

Even more interesting would be to pack a couple of travel bloggers in a car and tell them to come back in 2-3 months time. No maps no directions just go see what you can see and report back to us all. Hmm sounds like an idea don’t you think.

The bonus of having a smaller vehicle and camping or staying in cheap accommodation is you also get to avoid nasty things like their worst RV disaster ever. Just reading that post and imagining being there makes me a little queasy so those with a weak stomach might want to prepare before reading that one.

Something less stomach turning was the post on why you should learn to paddleboard. Now I’m not about to even consider it here in cold old England but if you happen to find yourself in a warmer climate it’s certainly a much easier task to master than surfing.

While these guys are getting to the end of their driving around the US trip, I’m looking forward to seeing how it all pans out. Especially as there is talk of travel abroad and hey if your ready my blog already you already love that idea so go check them out.

    Thanks for featuring us! πŸ˜€

    You should definitely drive across the U.S. sometime – it’s an interesting way to see some really random parts of the country. Driving it an RV certainly simplifies some aspects of a cross-country trip, but it also seriously complicates others (like parking and dealing with the black tank, lol).

      Your welcome guys, and yes I have to agree the US would be awesome to drive around. I’d imagine having the RV would really make life easier, no need to packup stuff from camping as its all inside there with you. Damn someone could drive while the other sat in the back writing blog posts πŸ™‚

      That whole black tank deal thought, yeah thats enough to scare me away πŸ™‚

    — It does sound like a good idea. Lol. When do you plan to do this? Traveling cross country with travel bloggers, I mean πŸ˜€

    Thanks Ayngelina! πŸ™‚

    And I agree – I think sending a bunch of travel bloggers out on a road trip would be quite entertaining!

    I have a question not relative to this post, but wasn’t sure where to put it, so I thought I’d ask it here. Did you really go to Kansas? Like Kansas, USA, Kansas? I live in Kansas, so I was just curious.

      haha Sherry, no I’ve not been there as yet but it is on the cards for a visit in the future. I’ll be sure to look you up when I get there πŸ™‚

    Indeed, you should do that — πŸ™‚

    I enjoy traveling, at the moment to Asian countries, I am fascinated by culture and history. Had to can our trip to Egypt this year because of the strife and that will be on the back burner for a while. One thing for sure as you travel overseas you get a real appreciation of our own country, our freedom, our way of life. We are still so lucky to have it all. Hope you get wherever it is you plan to go.

    I’m a huge fan of road trips! I think the cross US journey would be pretty interesting, it’s something we’ve been considering for a long time πŸ™‚

    I like your theme by the way!

    We are planning a road trip in the New Year and will be blogging about it as we go. Glad to see we are not alone in the travel blogging world. Keep up the good work.
