Wow this month has been busy! In the past four weeks we’ve finalised the sale of our house, packed up everything we own, and drove all the way across the country! Twice.
Yep you read that right, we drove across America twice. Why? Because we’re crazy! Just kidding…sort of 😉 We had two cars to take with us, and because we have pets we decided it was easier to drive one car across the country a couple of weeks before, then do the real move with the animals in the second car. Phew what a lot of driving!
It was such an interesting trip though, seeing the changes in the country as we made our way from state to state. I made a vlog to show our journey and how different things are across America. I hope you enjoy it 🙂
I took a couple of books with me on the trip, planning to have time to read both – that’s the real craziness lol! I managed to find time to start The Girl Who Would Be King (which is really good so far!) but definitely over estimated how much free time I’d have.

(PS: how gorgeous are those covers!)
So now we live in a place I hadn’t even visited before, and it’s all very new and different. We’re both loving it so far though – the mountains are gorgeous, and they surround us! Plus we’re back in “civilization”! Where we lived in Florida there wasn’t a lot of variety in places to go or things to do. But here we get the choice of so many shows, conventions, restaurants, hiking trails, and historic places to visit! I can’t wait to explore properly 🙂
As usual I’ll be taking part in Stacking The Shelves, and The Sunday Post – check out some of the other posts to find great reads 🙂
I purchased these books with my own money, and received no compensation for my honest opinion.

Congrats on the move. I love driving long distance when I have a good audiobook. When I moved from FL to LA, I was sorry the drive was ending! Glad you are in a place with more things to do now. Happy reading!
It was definitely a fun move, but long. It was 1900 miles one way! 😮
What an amazing trip! It is really hard to be in a car for that long though. I couldn’t imagine moving that far away. Good for you!
Yeah by the end (it was 1900 miles one way!) my legs felt as though they were stuck in sitting position lol!
I really want to do this. I’ve always loved road trips, but no one wants to go with me. 🙁
Hope you continue to have fun! XD
Aww maybe one day 🙂 It was a long trip, but fun, definitely needs a couple of people to help switch out the driving every few hours. Very fun though 😀 I hope you get to do it one day!
Wow what a move and it was so cool to watch your video!
It was interesting too, even though we are seasoned travellers to Orlando we have never driven there and this year we are taking the plunge and hiring a car. I live in Scotland so most cars are smaller and our roads are a lot narrower but we have hired a massive Chevy Tahoe for two weeks and I cannot wait to get behind the wheel and try it out!
I have already told my other half I want to the drive out to Kennedy Space Centre.
Have a good week and enjoy your new home!
Thanks! I’m originally from England so I can relate on the size difference in cars! I’m sure you’ll have a great time, it sounds like it will be a lot of fun 😀
