(September – October 2010) The start in Illinois
We love driving route 66! It has a real nostalgic feeling, it gives you the change to meet interesting people and see interesting places on the road, and the driving part self is fun too because it will take you off the interstate and sometimes you really have to make an effort to find the right way. Route 66 is actually a bunch of all different roads in 8 different states, that are connected and that all together was the road from Chicago to LA in the early days. Officially it doesn’t exist anymore and some parts of the road are gone, replaced by the interstate or other roads. That’s why you really have to look where to go and read the description very carefully to make sure you don’t miss a part. For us, this makes the trip even more interesting.
