The Desert Trip Festival - A cross-generational Happening

•••
The day has come. Today we’ll arrive at Desert Trip Festival in Indio, California. After several days' road-tripping across the United States, Stefan and I wake up in our hotel room in Twentynine Palms, about an hour's drive from Indio. We're fairly  nervous at what Desert Trip might bring; the line up - which includes The Rolling Stones, Paul McCa[...]

Finding Love in San Francisco

•••
I recently returned from a whirlwind trip to San Francisco, CA. The trip was all about love, but not in the two-people-fall-in-love kind of way; it was about one woman (me) and one city (San Francisco).  I have been to the City by the Bay before as a tourist on my first ever solo trip, as a cheerleader when my mom ran the Nike Women's Marathon, and as a tour[...]

6 Instagrammers That Make You Want to Escape into the Montana Wilderness

•••
'Live and let live' is the Montana state motto, and every inch of this state embodies the wild American spirit. The sky really does seem bluer and bigger, the beer tastes better from a rustic town tap, the roads are winding, and the wildlife isn't afraid to get up close and personal. As I gear up for my last-minute road trip through the Montana wilderness[...]

50 Must See Places in the Western United States

•••
This summer I returned to my home country after living in the Far East and embarked on a month long road trip through the Western United States, experiencing my homeland like I never dreamed: through a Great American Road trip. Coming from the East Coast originally, I have spent many long hours experiencing the open highways of America. However, much of t[...]

8 Surprising Cities to Add to Your Cross-Country Road Trip

•••
One of the coolest parts of planning your next road trip is that you can constantly search for new and less-explored parts of the country — a bonus to living in such a vast space as the United States. There is nothing quite like getting lost in nature or among locals in some remote or unknown location. If you’ve yet to kick off your next cross-country jou[...]

Niagara Falls: The USA or Canadian Side?

•••
Ahh, Niagara Falls. One of the world's greatest waterfalls, a wonder of North America, and a true Natural beauty. Right? Well, perhaps it's not quite the natural wonder I was expecting, particularly if you've been to any National Parks in the USA or Canada. Niagara Falls has grown to become a huge tourist attraction, and while the falls themselves are still [...]

100 Years of American National Parks

•••
To plan our road trip across the USA, we pinpointed on a map all the places we wanted to go to and linked them together, including cities, historical sites and national parks, which are very renowned in America. In the end, we managed to see seven national parks across the USA which were all very different and beautiful in their own way. To celebrate the 100[...]

The Travelettes Itinerary for Central California

•••
“I’m going to start in L.A., travel up the coast and then see where the road will take me,” my boyfriend explained to me through the microphone of his laptop. “I’ll be home in two or three weeks, babe”. Maybe there was something wrong with the Skype connection, because that blurry dude on my computer screen could not just have told me that he was going to tr[...]

10 Things To Do in L.A. That Are Totally Free

•••
What if I asked you to list a few of your top places for travelling on a budget? I bet L.A. wouldn't be among them. In fact, the city of dreams has such a reputation for being horrendously expensive that most people rolled their eyes at me when I told them about my spontaneous trip to the West Coast, on a budget. While last-minute flights can really be super[...]
