Poe's North American Tour '99

Other than the odd short trip to Scotland or Wales, I didn't leave my native England until 1999 when I was 28 years old.

Then I took a long tour around North America, touching all four corners of the United States and both coasts of Canada. To say it was a culture shock would be an understatement, but it was a fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable trip. I travelled alone or in the company of my then girlfriend, Tracy, and met up with many people who I had previously only known online through the trivia game site, Cosmo's Conundrum.

Here's my write-up of the tour. It's only about half finished but it's too distant now for me to finish off properly.

I did however return a year later for the Millennium Roadtrip.
