American History Road Trip 2016

Welcome to another trip report of our's.

We are taking a break from Orlando for various reasons and doing a US Roadtrip instead.

March 23rd - April 6th 2016

We start in NYC for 3 nights.
Drive from Newark Airport, through New Jersey, Delaware & Maryland.

where we stay and explore Indiana a little along with Kentucky and Illinois for 6 nights.
Flying home from Nashville and then Atlanta.


It was a trip of a life time.
Totally amazing.

Hi Lisa
School summer holidays and a day at home for the sprog meant a day of reading both your Orlando trip reports. You have a very similar touring style to our family. I really enjoyed the reports and they have made me very excited for our next trip in December
