Back From The States!

In my haste to get ready to leave on our vacation some 6 weeks ago, I forgot to put a little message in my blog to let you know where i'd be! So incase you've been wondering where i've been these past 6 weeks, i'm back to tell you I was in the USA!!!

Our long awaited trip to The States has come and gone by so fast. We spent 6 weeks starting from Toronto (ok this is Canada) making our way to Boston, NYC, Philly and DC. We picked a car up at DC and started driving towards sunny Miami. After that a short flight to New Orleans and then another short flight to South Dakota to start our next driving trip from Mt Rushmore all the way to San Fran stopping by lots of National Parks on the way.

Had an amazing trip! All you US based Etsians are so lucky to live in such a huge and varied country. There's so much to do - lots of beautiful nature, lots of weird and wacky, lots of everything and anything - oh and lots of great food (and a little too much fast food - sorry!).

I loved how every state is different from the other - from the landscape change to the people change to the food change, even the architecture and history change. Each new state was something fresh for us to enjoy.

If only we had more time - 6 weeks just flew by!

Will post more photos up soon but here's a few of one of my fav spots we visited:


Antelope Canyon

Glad you loved our states, we do too, sorry about the fast food...argh...So much of it I haven't seen either, but I am so comfortable here in Iowa, I'll just watch it on cable and avoid the crowds.
