|Driving Route 66 from Chicago to Amarillo|
|Route 66 between Amarillo and Santa Monica|
Have reported it to Google. Let's hope I can add the missing data - glad I still have taken many notes on paper.
|The first part of our way back from Santa Monica went up to Cedaredge in Colorado|
|After the Rocky Mountains were behind us, we had to hurry back to Chicago, to make it in time.|
Long distancies and hours to just drive, but we got back on Route 66 in Lincoln
and went up to Joliet, before we finally drove back to the airport
We stayed in 28 hotels of different categories, some of them historical, have seen hundreds of locations and wonderful landscapes and met lots of friends, some of them we already knew, but we made many more friends - as Gary Turner would say - friends for life.
My RoadBook shows almost 50 more entries of friends we met along the road and with whom we talked and talked and always forgot about the time. That was the main reason, why we had to take the Interstate, but even though we did not always get to the hotels before it got dark.
Why German first?
There's so much information on Route 66 in English language on the web, and also maps about the Mother Road. With my personal travel blog I want to reach out for the German audience, who are not so lucky with German information on Route 66. Although there are a few good pages, there's still missing a lot.
In this blog there's going to be articles for all the locations we visited, all the friends we met and businesses we've been to. All locations are pinned onto a map like the one below. Clicking on any pin will reveal more information on the place and also link back to the explanatory article in this blog.
This map was created for all Route Route 66 Travelers and it will finally include all the locations and attraction along the way with some explanatory text and links with even more details.
