My Dream Travel Wishlist for 2018

Since returning from America, I’ve spent the last couple of weeks looking at holidays and working out where I’d love to visit this year.

Nashville, Graceland & Memphis, Tennessee #4

It’s about time I got on with these posts, right? Hopefully, there will be American content flying left, right and centre in the next couple of weeks. My previous USA Diary posts can be found here but I think I’m now on Day 7 which we woke up in Wytheville before heading on the road to Nashville. A lot of the time we just rolled out of bed into the van half asleep. The earlier we head off on the road, the earlier we get to our destination. As a big fan of country music, I was unbelievably excited to…
