Fly to Dallas (or New York depending on costs, but I'm probably more interested in Dallas) to spend a few days and then fly on to my first main destination which is Nashville, to take in a show at the Grand Ole Opry.
Drive from Nashville to Memphis ... well you know why:
Continue driving to Jackson, stopping in for the night at Clarksdale to make a deal with the devil at the crossroads and then keep on heading south until I hit New Orleans.
From there fly to Miami, although I'm open to keep on driving depending on time/cost factors
and then take a four day cruise of the Bahamas,
Havana while I'm in the neighbourhood, then fly on to LA.
I'm planning for this stage of my trip to be around the 4th of July to spend it in an non-traditional or totally traditional manner, I'm open to ideas on how to do this on either coast, maybe you know someone around these areas that I could share this with?
DRIVE ROUTE 66 TO LAS VEGAS, BABY! to be there for my birthday on July 9th.
While I'm on the west side, I'll probably do a tacky celebrity tour, check out the sign and head up to San Francisco to buy a pair of jeans and drive over the bridge.
From LA fly to Hawaii and check out the main island, volcanoes, surfing, general tiki stuff, the Maui flying fox, etc. and then head home having missed a large chunk of the Melbourne winter.
I'll be travelling solo and would obviously like to keep the price down without twin-sharing where possible.
I'll keep you posted ...
