Honeymoon Revealed

Wrapping up in these winter layers already has me lusting after a holiday with some sun!  So this might be a fine time to share with you our amazing Honeymoon plans for next year.  About 2 months ago my husband booked our flights to the U.S of A…road trip baby!  In August we will be jetting off for the trip of a lifetime; 5 weeks road trippin’ around the USA…in a Mustang! Whoop!  We’re so excited because this will be one last big trip for just the two of us (cue Will Smith) before we embark on the next stage of our lives, children!

I’ve been to a fair few places in the States before but my hubby has never been so I can’t wait for him to experience a country which I love so much.  We’re actually flying into Toronto, Canada so we can say, ‘we’ve been to Canada’, albeit for a day, which will probably be spent sleeping!  But from there our plan is to drive down to Detroit as our first USA stop.  My husband was (ok is) an Eminem fan so Detroit was his choice as our first city. I fear there’s going to be a lot of rapping during our stay there, oh joy.  From there we plan to travel across the country to the West Coast where we want to visit the biggies; San Fran, LA etc and then down to Vegas, nip into Mexico (Because we want to see a Chihuahua…in Mexico LOL) and then up through Texas (we’re thinking Houston) headed North/East to NYC.  These are the main cities we want to visit but obviously there’s a great deal of road in between all these places so this is where we want to experience real America.  In our heads all these quaint little towns you see in the movies really do exist so these are the kind of places we want to visit, and I really want to see random shit like ‘The worlds largest ball of yarn’….Please tell me that is a real thing!  So I’m calling on all you USA dwelling folk (and anyone that’s travelled around America) to recommend places for us to stop and visit, even in the big cities which I’ve already mentioned, if there’s an amazing Doughnut shop, restaurant or activity you think would be amazing please do let us know!  We’re relying on you guys to help us out 🙂

Guys this is an epic trip for us, and yes, I will be Instagramming (incessantly no doubt!) and Snap chatting (to the point of annoyance) because I can’t resist the temptation to sit on the hood of our Mustang in some Daisy Dukes, ala Jessica Simpson…without the double D’s…someone get me some chicken filets!

We’ll update you guys as our plans start to come together, but the flights and car are booked,  so USA…watch out 😉

    That sounds like the most amazing trip! I can’t wait to see pics as you go. I’ve never been to America so I can’t really recommend anywhere but my friend went to New Orleans earlier this year and she said it was such an experience x

      Hi Sarah, I’ve also heard amazing things about New Orleans and mainly their community spirit after the damage done by Katrina. I can’t wait to share pics with you all, August can’t come soon enough! x

    A road trip sounds so exciting! I’ve actually lived in the U.S. my whole life and have never done a cross country road trip, but it sounds so fun. I just visited Charleston for the first time this year (I have a small photo diary on my blog), and it’s definitely a must see (besides NYC of course). I would also recommend stopping off in Arizona to see the Grand Canyon, and I absolutely love Sedona, Arizona! Also, driving through the Rockies in Utah and Colorado is amazing as well!

    Oh Emma I cannot wait for the day you start doing pregnancy style! I’ve only had 1 babba so far but I really struggled with getting myself dressed in anything other than joggers and a baggy jumper! I might hold off bubba number 2 until you make the announcement we’re all waiting for hehe.
    Your honeymoon plans sound amazing, unfortunately I’ve never been abroad before but I will live vicariously through you for now until I can brave getting on a plane.

      Oh but you can’t beat the cosiness of jogging bottoms & hoodies right?! lol Yes I can’t wait to experiment with bump style, it’s a whole new avenue lol x

      Thanks Lauren! x

    That sounds like a great honeymoon trip. I live in the US (NY/NJ) and can’t wait to see your pictures. Have fun! There is so much to see and do in NYC, hope you have a few days carved out for it.

      Thank you, we do indeed although I have already been so I think that gives us an advantage 🙂 x

    I’m English but live in America. There’s so many places, San Diego in California, Austin in Texas, I second what somebody said above with Charleston, one of the most beautiful smaller cities in America, Asheville is great too. If you want smaller those are the kinds of places I would look at

    That trip sounds incredible.

    Can i ask how you went about getting this booked? Me and my partner are also looking into doing a road trip but are totally oblivious on where to start lol!!


    • 8th July 2016 / 3:44 pm

      Well Sophie to be honest with you all we did was book our flights and the hotel for the first night and also the car. We didn’t want to plan everything day by day because you don’t know what could happen along the way so we’re literally winging it as we go along. We know a few major cities we want to visit but then we’re just going to drive and see if anywhere takes our fancy. I think there are some companies which will actually book you a whole road trip but that was too structured for us, we wanted more freedom. We’re going August 22nd so follow along and see how we get on, I’m sure I’ll have some tips and tricks as we go along x
