There’s something really special about going on a road trip, isn’t there? It screams adventures, great tunes and freedom. Some would say it makes the best kind of holiday. So, with my bags packed, playlist created and fancying myself as a bit of an explorer, I knew an American road trip was the way to go…
Where best to embrace the great open road, than a Californian adventure – where Hollywood movies are made. A trip like this needed a lot of planning as I was covering a huge distance in two weeks. So to help all you would be travellers, I’ve documented my journey, sharing my itinerary and top sights along the way! I’ve broken my adventure down into a three part series, so grab a cuppa, settle down and get inspired to travel.
Day 1-3 VEGAS
The USA is the ultimate road trip destination! With wide open highways, palm-lined coastal roads and stunning National Parks. On 25th August 2016 USA National Parks will be celebrating their 100th Birthday. So here are some of the best National Parks the USA has to offer. Hit the road and explore!
Here are some of the USA’s best National Parks:
1. Yosemite National Park
The Pacific Coast Highway is one of the most impressive scenic drives in the World, let alone the US. Start all the way up in San Francisco and cruise down to San Diego or vice versa. The route takes about ten hours to complete with no stopping (but what’s the point of that?!). We recommend about 1-2 weeks stopping properly and taking your time. Over the 1000km you’ll pass through spectacular beaches, untouched forests and lush vineyards.
Here are some of our favourite stops along the way:
Australia is beautiful, huge, cosmopolitan, rugged, unmissable and, unfortunately, not as cheap and your other classic backpacker stops such as Southeast Asia. For many the idea the open road, running to your own schedule and taking your bedroom with you is appealing, not just for the freedom, but also the potential savings.
Read on for our essential tips on saving big bucks while you’re on the road, so you have more moolah for the important things. Like this hat. What?
