Ep.33> Jungle Jims, Route 66

Jungle Jims, Route 66 >

Waking up this morning at the Route 66 Hotel I only had one thing on my mind. A bacon butty which is Northern English for a Bacon Sandwich.

When I got to Jungle Jims i was blown by how warm it felt inside. Not in the terms of heat but the atmosphere, colours, smell and people inside. The fact it was throwing it down with rain outside made me want to just kick back. I got my booth and found my Bacon sandwich and sat back with my coffee. I then explored the menu and I was won over by the three egg breakfast! Such a vast menu! My surroundings are Nascar themed and really interesting. Jim introduced himself and we had a nice chat. I was very chilled out. I had a wonder round to take my shots of the place and met the staff and different Jungle Jim generations and got some nice photographs.

I was excited about driving the Corvette in the rain! but at the same time I really didn’t want to go back out into it after this warm welcome.
