We are more then half-way through our road trip and are having a fabulous time.
We have encountered great food, not so great food, interesting tourist destinations, beautiful plants as well as some over-hyped destinations.
Our typical road trip day begins with breakfast at the hotel and then we head to our car, turn on the GPS and get on the highway. We have brought some audio book CD’s which are fun to listen too.
We try to stay off of major highways because you cannot see much besides trees on either side of the road. To experience more of each area we visit, we travel on minor highways. BUT, our GPS is always trying to get us back onto the major highways.
Before we left Washington, we drove up to my great-great-great-grandfathers farm. Or, where it used to be. It is now filled with beautiful homes. I tried to imagine what it used to look like and felt a connection to standing on land he used to farm.
Later, we headed up to New York state. On our way, we stopped by the tiny town of Volant, which is located in Amish country in New York.
