Philadelphia to Chicago (via Canada)

It's been a busy two weeks as we turned the top right hand corner of the States, and started to head back West. We are keen to get a few weeks of sunshine at the end of the trip in California, so have been staying in most places only one night to try and get ahead of schedule!

Therefore since Baltimore we have been to:

Philadelphia, Pensilvania: Running up the Rocky steps, discovering the classic phili cheesesteak and checking out where my Dad used to live

New Haven, Connecticut: Wandering around Yale and eating great meatballs

Cape Cod, Massachusetts: Sampling Lobsters and chowder but unfortunately in a lot of rain

Albany, New York: Seeing the Great Gadsby and falling in love with Leo again

Kingston, Ontario, Canada! Spending a lot of time on the phone to the bank, running by the 1000 islands and eating epic burgers

Belleville, Ontario: Going down memory lane seeing Rob's childhood home, school and eating at the Dairy Queen

Toronto, Ontario: Staying with 'the cow', drinking in an Irish pub and going up the CN Tower

Niagra on the lake, Ontario: A morning at the falls, a beautiful wine tour and drinking bubbles in a hot tub

Ann Arbor, Michigan: Staying with family friend Cliff, grilling in the garden and drinking a lot of apple beer

Chicago, Illinois: Getting full up on deep dish pizza, buying 'motivational' new trainers, visiting 'the bean' in Millennium park, going on an architectural boat trip, having amazing steak, going to a Cubs baseball game and having a mammoth last day of eating before the diet starts

We now have a huge 22 hour drive ahead of us before we get to Yellowstone National Park, although will stop off at Mount Rushmore on route.

In summary:

Accommodation: I've made up with airbnb as we have had some great ones, particularly in Chicago. We are now all booked up to Santa Barbara on the 25th June!
Weather: We've had our fair share of rain :(
Tan: Therefore not good
Sports: Baseball = Cricket / Rounders - Pork Pies + Hotdogs!
Countdown: Five weeks to go!
