Another of my favorite spots in Shanghai was Yu Garden. This is an ancient garden in the middle of Shanghai. It’s incredible how you can go from the hustle and bustle of one of the most populated cities on the planet, into one of the most serene and peaceful areas I’ve ever been to (minus all the tourists).


Route 66 Road Trip Day 1 Vlog by Dennis Bernhard

This has been on my bucket list for a long time, so when I got the opportunity to drive Route 66 this summer, I was incredibly excited. 

And just because I wasn't actually on Route 66 at all the first day, didn't dampen my excitement. I wanted to do the full route so I had to drive from Nashville to Chicago and officially ship off on day 2. 

It was well worth it. Not only did I get to drive every mile (at least of what's left), I also got to spend a night in Chicago. That's never a bad thing. 

Let me know what you think about the vlog. Have you ever driven Route 66?
