Even though we didn't stay in all of these states, we did cross the borders (and got photos of most!)
California (I can't believe we missed California!!)
(okay, so we cheated with that one. We kind of missed the shot:)
Georgia (taken out the back window as we were leaving Georgia!
We miss the last few as we were on the train!!
So there you have it. 18 states. We probably visited more states than a lot of Americans ever have, but not as many as, well... some other people.
Since September only has 30 days (I had to check), that just about wraps up another NaBloPoMo for me. I think you've all figured out by now that we had a fantastic time, and we wouldn't have changed a thing. We got to do everything we wanted to do, and more. We got to try Junior Mints, grits, milk duds, s'mores, Hersheys chocolate, American coffee with free refills, an American McDonald's cheeseburger, ribs, crawfish, Po'boys, a meatball sub, beef jerky, a bagel in New York, a giant pretzel, NY style pizza, Cracker Barrell, Burger King, Wendy's, and sweet potato fries. Next time we go back we'll have to grab some Taco Bell and IHop!
But it wasn't all about the food! We had good conversations with interesting people we met along the way, we got to drive a brand new awesome sexy car, we caught up with my dear friend Kimberley and BJ on the lakes, we pretended we knew famous people at ComicCon and we met some family in San Diego. America is full of diversity - both in their culture from west to east and north to south, and the constantly-changing landscapes. Hubs and I took some magical photos that we can't wait to put up in our home, and we'll hold on to these memories for a lifetime.
