Road Trip

We can honestly say we are growing to love the USA.

We loved ~ The scenery – Montana and The mountains especially. We really enjoyed our time in Columbus and Washington DC and Pittsburg the most 

We didn’t like ~ Umm. Need to think about that

The people ~ We have grown to love the Americans too. Almost without exception, everyone has been very friendly, staff everywhere have been really helpful and the American Customer Service we have come to expect has been on show. And not just when people are working either. They have been great in the street too and we won’t forget the lady who willingly gave Jody her metro pass at Wall Street so she could get through the turnstile.

Food ~ Still struggling a little bit with that as so much meat and grilled cheese everywhere. But we have to say that the choices for vegetarians and people who don’t want a pound of beef every meal have improved a lot since we were last here 5 years ago.

Transport – Rosie has been great and the Greyhound we used earlier on was good too. Although their schedule seemed to run a bit late most of the time

Miles travelled in Rosie ~ Columbus to Vancouver 4425 miles

Things which will remind us of USA ~ mountains, bears, camping, bridges

Would we recommend it?  Yes definitely. We will be back we are sure
