So… I turned 30 and the world didn’t end! Who would have thought? I am happy to say that I was able to complete my travel goal, and am making my way through a quick recap of the countries I visited by my 30th birthday.
Country #4 United States of America – Home of the brave
Going to Disneyworld, Florida !!! truly the happiest place on earth *** Making frequent street food stops in NYC *** Driving a huge pick-up truck to Red Rock, Colorado *** Taking photos at the Hollywood sign *** Eating “doubles” on Jamaica Avenue, NYC *** Battling Los Angeles 5-lane highways *** Exploring Louisville, Kentucky on foot *** Witnessing marine wonders at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, California *** Having a nice, quiet dinner in Carmel, California *** Having my aura read in Salem, Massachusetts ***Checking out Alcatraz and its awesome audio tour.
When to go
USA is a HUGE country, so there isn’t a particular time of year that you couldn’t go. There is so much happening, all over the country, all the time. To see true American nationalism, make a trip around the 4th of July: good bbqs and fireworks! If you are able to visit family in the land of opportunity, try to plan a visit around Thanksgiving in November.
Why you should go
Just to experience the difference sub-cultures USA has to offer. The “melting pot”, as it is known, is different from east to west coast, from north to south. Oh! and soul food… make a trip just to get you some grits!
