The best travel experience I’ve had was driving down the American Pacific coastline, from Washington state down to California. There is just no better way of exploring such a vast country, and whenever you tire of one place, all you need to do is load up the Chevy and get back on the road!
I was also surprised that my favourite location of the trip was the city of Portland in Oregon, which is a great city and very unique compared to the rest of the States.

Sealand: The world’s smallest nation (well, maybe!)
Anyone who has been to a few quiz nights has probably encountered the question “what is the smallest nation in the world?” Answer: Vatican City, right? Well, perhaps not, as there is an “island” that’s been making claim to this envious title. So please stand aside, Your Holiness, whilst I investigate!
The rural Welsh town of Gaiman… in Argentina
Hapus Dydd Gŵyl Dewi! Or, if you aren’t from Wales or the town of Gaiman, Argentina – happy St David’s Day! For amazingly, this Argentine town’s mother tongue is Welsh! Just how a Welsh-speaking town, complete with Welsh identity and architecture, managed to emerge in a country where Spanish is the official language is pretty fascinating, or “diddorol”, as the Welsh/Gaimanions may say.
Ryugyong Hotel: Is this the world’s strangest hotel?
