The last three places on my trekamerica trip were the wonderful Washington, Philadelphia and New York. We had two days in Washington, where we had a day time bike tour, ate breakfast at the famous IHOP and explored museums. It was then time for our farewell dinner in Georgetown. It was safe to say that we were all ready to head home after such a long trip! But it was lovely to have a chilled last family night. Philadelphia was next, and was a quick pit-stop where we visited the Liberty Bell, posed on the Rocky steps and tried the famous Philli cheese steaks (one word: delicious!). Afterwards it was a short drive to our gateway hotel in Newark, where we all said goodbye! Me, Matty and Polly then checked in and headed straight to New York where we saw the sun set on top of the Empire State Building. It was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen! The next day, me and Matty literally trekked around the city to try and see as much as we could – we visited the Statue of Liberty, walked the High Line, chilled in Central Park and saw the 9/11 memorial. It was then time to say goodbye and head home!

These past two months have literally been the best two months of my life – it’s such a cliche thing to say, but, when you do travel you learn a lot about yourself, and on this trip I surprised myself and did things I never thought I would do. Despite the few downs (Cedar Point I’m looking at you), I would definitely do it again, and it’s definitely fuelled my passion for travel!

Stay tuned for in-depth photo diaries of my American adventure!

TRAVEL – my usa bucket list

travel - my usa bucket list

As today marks the first day of my trekamerica trip, I thought that I would share with you guys my USA bucket list.

new york citytravel - my usa bucket list new york city
The concrete jungle where dream are made of. New York has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. The bright lights of Times Square, the spectacular skyline view from the Empire State Building and sailing near the famous Statue of Liberty are all things that I’m excited to tick off.

los angelestravel - my usa bucket list los angeles
Home of Hollywood’s finest, a visit to LA has been imprinted on my brain ever since I saw The Hills. From a stroll down the Hollywood Walk of Fame to hitting Venice Beach, I can’t wait to get my so-cal vibe on when we land in LA.

grand canyontravel - my usa bucket list grand canyon
One of the seven natural wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon is another place I can’t wait to visit. I’m probably gonna be one of those people who take 83922 photos of it, but hey, it is a natural wonder after all!

las vegastravel - my usa bucket list las vegas
The city that never sleeps… One minute I’ll be next to the Eiffel Tower and the next I’ll be taking a selfie in front of an Egyptian pyramid. If that’s not already enough to make me giddy, there’s always the nightlife and the Bellagio fountains.

new orleanstravel - my usa bucket list new orleans
We will always have Bourbon Street. And voodoo, swamps and of course gumbo. From the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter to a cooking class, NOLA is another place on I can’t wait to tick off my wish list.
