Route 66 Texas

Route 66 Texas is an odd one. Obviously in the USA it's one of the biggest states but apart from Route 66 Kansas it's the second shortest part of the route. It's also got a few towns (with the main one being Amerillo) that you go through. However unlike other states there is very little in between. The other main point for Route 66 Texas is that you have hit the half way point in the journey! It's hard to believe that this is the case because the gaps between the things in California get bigger. You certainly feel at times that you've seen more on the trip in the states of Illinois and Missouri. Anyway what does Route 66…

Route 66 Oklahoma Part 2

If you haven't read Part 1 on Route 66 Oklahoma do it here! Oklahoma City is the state capital for Oklahoma. It's the biggest city in the whole state. As a person from the UK Oklahoma has one thing in my memory which is the tragic bombing of 20+ years ago. We paid a visit to the site which I'll talk about below. Before we got there as we came into the City you see the State Capital building appear on the horizon. With a big towering dome very similar to the one from Illinois State Capitol building it's really imposing as you come into the city. It was built in 1917 and contains a number of key war memorials…

Why You Need A Winter Break

There is nothing like booking a break away for yourself or for your friends. You can gather all of your friends together and get on a plane and just blow off steam for a few days and one of the most luxurious ways to do this is with a winter break. Winter is a season that we often wrap up warm in, so why not wrap up warm and get out in the winter sunshine and snow for a change? There is nothing wrong with ramping up the adrenaline on the mountains on a snowboard, or snowshoeing across the landscape before a night in front of the fire. Winter breaks have just as much to offer as summer breaks, and…

Route 66 Oklahoma Part 1

After leaving the smallest state in Kansas Route 66 we head to Route 66 Oklahoma! It was really noticable to see how the states were different. This sounds like an odd statement I know to make but in the way of the towns, the make up of the farm land and just what you saw. As you move further West on the route you see how each different state treats Route 66 and what they have as important. Oklahoma is no different to this. As the famous song goes "Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain" and I really felt that I noticed this that things were more spread out and there was more farming in the state…

4 Excellent Road Trips To Rival Route 66

There are many amazing things about the good old “You-Ess-of-Ay'' and not many are more iconic than Route 66. The 2,500 miles, three-week drive from the east coast to the west coast along the once-bustling road is a dream on the bucket list of many travellers and one of the excellent road trips of the world. The road originally ran from Chicago, Illinois to Santa Monica, California across 7 states and multiple towns and cities but today only around 85% of the route remains. Decaying roads, dangerous conditions and route replacement have made a large section of Route 66 un-drivable and today, to travel the entire route, you will need to begin in Missouri and end in Arizona. But as…
