As you might or might not know, I recently landed in the US of A. It’s always been a dream of mine to spend an extended period of time here, to do an epic road trip perhaps and to visit my American cousins who live in Colorado. I was just never sure when it would actually happen.
Over the past few months, the USA has sadly decreased in popularity as a top destination for travellers. I have so many friends who have cancelled trips they were meant to take while others have been unable to travel due to past travel decisions (such as spending prolonged periods of time in countries President Trump does not seem to like!).
For me, I couldn’t think of a better time to visited the United States. I want to find the good in America, and I know I’m going to find it everywhere I go.
After my Cork to Cape Town trip sort of fell apart at the end of last year, I was left feeling a little lost. I had no direction and my travel plans had totally crumbled. I ended up booking a one way flight to Mexico, and while I had a lot of fun there and got to experience new destinations like Cuba, Belize and Mexico, there was no real purpose to my trip. I still have a lot to write about my adventures and there’s no denying it was the most incredible 3 months, but I feel I have very little to show for it.
That’s all about to change. Say hello to “Project USA”. I plan to spend the next 2 months documenting my trip across the United States. I will be uploading a new video for every new destination I visit. That means I could be uploading a new video every second day for 8 weeks. I also plan to keep my blog updated on a much more regular basis (you can hold me to that!) as I take buses, trains, flights and cars across ten different states!
I want to share my travel experiences, stories from locals and hopefully introduce you to some lesser known place in the states that I visit. It’s time to get back off the beaten trail and to discover the places and people that make this country so great. As I discover the United States, I hope to inspire you to do the same.
My mission is to “Find The Good in America” so if you want to meet up and help me along the way, please leave a comment or shoot me a message!
