Big, wide roads. Huge distances. Cheap cars, cheap petrol. Lots of things to see. What else do you need to hit the road (Jack) and travel around USA?
Of course there are thousand places to visit, hundreds of interesting spots by the road, but not enough time. You have to plan accordingly. Where is it worth to go when you want to see a lot but you don’t have much time?
Here is my route, that I’ve done on the west States, during 12 days.

The trip was definitely amazing, and the National Parks, together with other nature wonders, that we saw during the way – took my breath away!
“USA has too much nice stuff! It’s not fair!” I was saying to my American friends met on the way, and they were laughing at me 😉
It’s true, when you look at it from the nature or geology (I’m geologist, hello!) perspective – it is really unbelievable. Europe is more cultural, but USA has amazing nature.
More about the trip – soon!
Have you ever been to any of those places or do you plan to go?
