Last year, when our holiday to China went wrong because of Covid-19, I kind of just started writing about a fantasy holiday, which got a little bit out of control. But I really enjoyed doing it, and I knew that this year i would want to do it again. So I made up my mind that for our Fantasy Holiday for 2021, we would visit all of the continental states of the USA.
That trip is happening on Facebook, and we are currently on Week 28 and are busy exploring New Hampshire. I somehow knew when I started this Fantasy Holiday (FH21) that I would have problems with this collection of states, and I also now understand where New England is. There are so many tons names that have been taken from the UK.
The Numbers on the map should be adjacent to the capitals of each state, and you can clearly see the confused order in which we have been dotting about this area.
I have to say that it has been very educational to read about the history of the states, and the towns. This area in particular features very significantly in the early history of America. It’s also taught me about some of the really beautiful parts of the country.
It has been a fascinating exercise and we are only just over halfway through the holiday. And because we are past the halfway point, I am now beginning to wonder if I want to do this again next year, and if I did, I was wondering what to do. I have to admit, visiting the counties of England has potential.
