I’m sat watching a repeat of Stephen Fry In America. I have seen all the episodes once and read the book, but like a Michael Palin or any really good travelogue its nice to watch again.

For those of my many readers (are there any?) who don’t know he drives a London Taxi around all 50 States. Now it is a dream of mine to visit all 50, I have managed three (five if you choose to include visits to airports to transfer flights). Florida, California and Hawaii (with Main and Ohio courtesy of airports).

I have a few little routes planned, that should bring me a few more states, but some; Alaska for example I think will have to be a special trip.

So three down and 47 to go – plus Guam, Costa Rica and Washington D.C. – oh dear, wish me luck…
