As previously threatened, I went and took that thrifty roadtrip. Yep: the first holiday in two years, all bought and paid for back at the beginning of 2010.
We landed in Colorado and hired a car. Then we drove up through Wyoming (my favourite state) into Yellowstone National Park, then down through Utah and Arizona to the Mexico border, before flying out of Phoenix. We gorged on Mexican food and beautiful scenery, stayed at lots of deliciously cheap chain motels along the way and had some… interesting experiences. It was amazing.
(These are my favourite holidays: here are my 11 steps to a great thrifty roadtrip, if you missed them first time around.)
Did you miss me? Hopefully you didn’t even notice I was gone: I scheduled some posts to cover my absence. Then not long after we arrived back in Yorkshire last week, I went down with a lurgy. As they say in Utah: darn it.
As if the sight that greeted us when we landed back at Heathrow wasn’t depressing enough!
