We're off on our American honeymoon tomorrow! First port of call will be Las Vegas for four days, where we are going to do all of the tacky things plus have a guided airplane tour of the Grand Canyon. After that, it's a flight to Houston, Texas to start our Deep South adventure! We are hoping to visit Houston, New Orleans, Jackson, Memphis, Nashville, Atlanta and Birmingham (although not in that order!). I'd love to get to Savannah too but think that will be pushing it. I have my Sat Nav all programmed and ready to go.
I'm really excited because even though I've been all over Europe, I've never been outside of the continent I was born in. I'm nervous about driving on the wrong side of the road, but sure I will get used to it with time. I think the heat will be a big shock (we're at around 19C here at the moment, highest summer temps usually 25C) but hopefully we'll have an amazing time.
I'm taking my laptop so will probably update this blog if the places we stay in have wi-fi connections. However, it will be travel stuff and hopefully photos rather than book reviews and there won't be any regularity to it. I also won't have as much time to devote to reading and commenting on your blogs as I normally would, but that doesn't mean I don't care anymore! Be patient though, normal scheduling will resume in September. Any submissions to the Literary Blog Directory won't be looked at now until September, so again be patient.
See you all in September :)
