Lovely travelog there. Thanks for sharing

One question : How easy or tough is it to get a tourist visa for the US?

I have an office trip planned later this year and am toying with the idea to take my better half along. Would be my 1st trip to that country, so any info is appreciated. Thanks in advance

Max 70 MPH ... yes, you can go 10 MPH above, in case traffic conditions favour.
You can do some 'safe and spirited driving at those speeds (moreover most of them follow road rules unlike India) and I think its good to maintain them in that range since it is a rented vehicle and you won't set mom/wiefy's speed warning alarm.

If one wants to go all guns blazing at the asphalt then the Autobahn is the place to go ... Oh wait! They are also getting speed restrictions due to heatwave (I hope this is temporary).

From what I have seen, they are generally quite easy to get provided you are able to prove that you need to get back to India. You should start yours and your wife's visa procedure now itself as the interview appointment has a long waitlist. I got it after almost 2 months.

Thank you so much for the kind words. I used my iPhone X for taking the pictures.
