I feel that I may been a bit harsh on calling this road trip a bit of a nightmare but having read the comments on this page and reflecting on what’s been said. I reckon that I need to look at the bigger picture on how this road trip is going. Sure there have been bad points but for the majority of the time it has been very good. I am actually enjoying America and all of the things that she offers but when there ups there are downs.

“With most things, expectations ruin your appreciate of the reality. The American road trip is such a mythic experience that people often approach it with huge expectations of what it should be”.

“Also, if the blogging, writing, taking pictures, etc. seems like a chore, don’t do it. Take it all in with your senses. Write about it later, if and when you feel like it. Some of my own most memorable travel experiences are only in my mind – not written or photographed in any way. :)
I hope you get your travel mojo back and enjoy this experience!
P.S. And if all else fails, know that you’ll probably look back on this and love it. Things like this are sometimes better appreciated in retrospect!”
I enjoyed readingyour responses and i’m going to take more of your advice. be more spontaneus, have less expectation, do less work and enjoy myself! I’m just going to sit back and enjoy this experience only when I finish will I publish my log on 43 things to show everyone what can be done if you set your mind to it ;)
