March is a special month for women around the world. In the United States. March is women’s history month. Our school will share stories of amazing women who helped change and shape our country. March 8 is International Women’s Day. The holiday celebrates women’s accomplishments from around the world. Both celebrations, remind women that we have made great strides but our work isn’t done. Here is an epic road trip around the United States tracking the United States Suffragette Movement. I’m glad we’ve got a fairly new car for the journey so that we’ll at least have a comfortable ride! Not sure I would be quite as keen on the trip if my car was on its last legs, I’d probably look at car lease options, to be truly honest. The road will twist in turn thru various spots in the suffragette movement to make an epic road trip.
It was a day full of waterfalls and amazing views along to South Coast of Iceland. It was late afternoon when we arrived at one of my favorite places in Iceland – Jökulsárlón. My then-boyfriend and I were on an amazing 3-day adventure weekend road trip in Iceland. We both were super excited because we were going to head out to see an Iceland Ice Cave. We were being provided the Ice Caves by Vatnajokull Glacier from Guide to Iceland.
In the USA, I am a rarity among the millennial peer group. I am not sure why given the most of the rest of the world but driving around the USA I am odd. Why am I odd? I own a vehicle with a manual transmission and I purchased it in June 2015. There is a funny story behind why I drive a manual transmission which I will share at a later date but the gist is that I got my first car at the age of 13 (yep, 13) and was allowed to drive it every day (and no my parents weren’t crazy). Originally, I hated that my car was going to be a manual transmission but now 13 years later, I can’t imagine owning a car that isn’t a manual transmission.
Giant Coastal Redwoods rise up around me. I stand in awe that less than 30 minutes ago I was standing among the skyscrapers of San Francisco. A short drive across the Golden Gate Bridge is a wilderness oasis near one of the US’s largest cities in the most populous state. These coastal redwoods aren’t a hidden. They stand proudly in the Muir Woods National Monument.
I was shocked as the view changed from the rugged coast line of Ireland to the geological wonder of Giant’s Causeway before my very eyes. I had driven to Northern Ireland as part of a whirlwind road trip around the Isle of Ireland. I truly felt like I had stepped into the land of Giants.
