    Tucumcari - New Mexico

    August 18 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 36 °C

    Moved into New Mexico. Hot! Another older kinda wrecked town that seems to be going nowhere fast. Bad need of water here so got off the i40 & found a dirty old supermarket you won't see any photos of. The artwork in the town was beautiful.

    Day 72 - In the Area of 51

    November 18, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 45 °F

    Today's drive involved entering another new state, New Mexico, although judging by the scenery little has changed.

    The day started with a familiar IHOP. We will miss you dearly. Once we crossed the state border, we realised that we were travelling on a section of the historic Route 66 which was a nice surprise. We were also about an hour away from Roswell and having looked in the sky and all around I can confirm we spotted nothing unusual... except the price of gasoline had rocketed since leaving Lubbock, although I'm not blaming little green men for that one.

    Driving into Santa Fe there was a distinctively Spanish and Native American blend to the area's architecture that was striking. The area felt artistic and liberal and it will be fun to explore the city further. First things first, we settled down in our hotel for a short while before heading out. The temperature was decidedly chilly and we went to a local Indian restaurant for dinner. The owner of Raaga, Paddy Rawal, came over to our table and on learning we were from London told us about the restaurant he opened in Chelsea, London in the 1980s. He was very friendly and the food was lovely. We walked back to our hotel and watched TV for what was left of the evening. Bizarrely, an old episode from 1994 of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was on and the episode was about the family considering to sell their home to an unknown wealthy buyer. At the end of the episode, Donald Trump walks into the house to large cheers from the audience. When asked by one of the characters why weren't they informed that it was him offering to buy the house, he replied 'I like to keep a low profile'. Oh how we laughed...

    Song of the Day:
    Arianna Grande - Side to Side (this song is on a T-Mobile commercial that we have heard countless times and it has now worked it's way onto this blog. She is also the passenger in a car driving through the desert which helped with the decision.)

    Now in New Mexico

    August 23 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 75 °F

    We are now in the Southwest, mesas, high altitude, and cooler weather. We are at 4000 feet elevation and the temperature is a pleasant 74 degrees. The road visible in the foreground of the 2nd photo is historic Rte 66.

    Ganz schön langsam

    November 8, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 7 °C

    Auf endlos wirkenden Straßen setzten wir unseren Weg fort, wir kamen jedoch nur sehr langsam voran diese rießigen weiten und das ewige gerade ausfahren machte ganz schön müde und fertig. So hatten wir nach 3 Tagen noch nicht einmal die Hälfte der Strecke hinter uns 🙈🙈🙈
    Nun hieß es Gummi geben und Strecke machen leichter gesagt als getan, wenn das Auto genauso fährt wie Kerstins alter Polo, durch das neue Auto ist man dann doch ganz schön verwöhnt 😂😂
    (Polo ich lieb dich immer noch 😚😚)

    Jojo beschreibt das Auto als "es tut seinen Dienst" das sagt glaub ich schon ganz viel darüber aus 🤣
    Aber wenn man sogar von Lkws überholt wird die mit 120 km durch die Gegend ballern überlegt man es sich doch mal ob man beim nächsten mal nicht ein größeres Auto holt 😂😂🙈🙈
