So my recent travels have given me something of a bug, fuelled by the many jealousy inducing Instagram pictures that those I follow have been posting.
Me and my best friend have always talked about going to America together, and with last year as my final year at uni, there doesn’t seem to be a better time than this. She has been working at a school for three years now, and is considering doing something new, and it makes sense for her to take some time off in between as well.
We are considering doing a six-month tour of America, North America. Though we have both been there a few times, it has always been for a cramped amount of time, 2-3 weeks and only in one place. We want to experience the actual life of America, what everyday is like for American citizens. And there’s so many places that we want to visit; Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington D.C, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, New Orleans, more than you can even mention.
We understand it’s going to be pricy, and I’m currently trying to figure out the logistics of it. But it would be a once in a lifetime opportunity that we would remember forever. We are thinking of staying in those dusty roadside motels, hostels or even the possibility of renting of camper van which would be just too much fun to even consider haha!
We may also stay with family friends, if there are any that live close enough to the attractions we are looking for.
I’ve heard of STA Travel but does anyone know any other companies that are good for worldwide travel – especially for students on a tighter budget!
