Patrick had contacted us well in advance to plan their family dream holiday of a lifetime, travelling with an autistic son presented plenty of challenges, so we were delighted to take all the worry out of the planning and booked everything for them, flights, transport and all the hotels. Read here his extensive diary and fabulous photos of their amazing dream holiday on Route 66!
"Route 66 was to be the trip of a lifetime, a true “one-off,” so we were determined that we should do it properly and enjoy it to the full! Fiona and I were celebrating the summer in which we both turned 50, and 16 year old Joe was enjoying his summer break before returning to start 6th Form at his Special School.
I constructed an itinerary with the help of Travel with Jules. Julie and her staff provided an utterly reliable, friendly and efficient service, replying quickly to any email or phone call, with sound advice. The itinerary was a working document in the early days, as the family discussed the finer details of the trip, for example the inclusion of side trips (Grand Canyon and Las Vegas) and the identification of locations warranting a 2 night stay (Chicago, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas and Los Angeles).
Here is our full diary with 'daily favourites' and notes on places we stopped at, where we ate and sights along the way with a selection of photos!
