Oh stop. Quit trying to derail the thread with your nonsense. Also, you claim to be in Texas but you call gas "petrol"? Do I smell a troll?...

OP, you will be fine in America. Don't even worry. Enjoy!

From there you could drive on to Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown, Virginia's Historic Triangle. Plan to spend about a day in each place, and then go on to Virginia Beach and it's awesome boardwalk for a bit of fun in the sun for a couple of days.

Then you could drive across Virginia to the Smoky Mountains and the Shenandoah Valley. That area is really spectacularly beautiful. You could venture south into North Carolina and Cade's Cove, Cherokee, and that area for some more history in an absolutely breath taking environment. You can also do some ziplining in the Smoky Mountains - that's a lot of fun! Maybe even some whitewater rafting!

You could go in any number of directions from there. West into Tennessee, into Nashville and Memphis for some southern hospitality, country and blue grass music, and some boot scootin'! Or you could drive south east and check out Charleston and Savannah - oh, and North Carolina's beautiful Outer Banks on the way there.

Just some ideas. Others will have more ideas, I'm sure!
