I can’t believe it’s been a month! We left Australia on the 19th November and all of a sudden I’m sitting in LAX typing this on the 17th December.
America is a crazy awesome country and we have only scratched the surface, if you’re wondering where exactly we went here’s the list;
Los Angeles, Monterey, San Francisco, Muir Woods, Yosemite National Park, Bakersfield, Joshua Tree National Park, Palm Springs, Phoenix, Tucson, Tombstone, Van Horn, San Antonio, Beaumont, Lake Charles, Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Montgomery, Muscle Shoals, Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville, Franklin ….and a whole swag of little towns in between.
I couldn’t tell you what was my favourite thing, I loved Yosemite & Joshua Tree, and getting back to the Muir Woods again. San Antonio was so beautiful, the little hotel in Van Horn won my heart. There was so much history & culture in New Orleans …. and of course Memphis & Nashville were the places I wanted to get to the most for musical reasons. I got to visit Sun Studios, go to the Ryman & catch the Grand Ole Opry & Music City Roots (with my undying love for Jim Lauderdale this was possibly my favourite night of music!)
But now it’s time for home, and although we had an amazing time I can’t deny I am looking forward to getting home, to my hounds & my own bed that doesn’t smell like a hotel!
So in the spirit of coming home here’s a playlist of my favourite aussie artists… and some more photos 😉
See you soon Melbourne
