I’ve been visiting European cities for short breaks for over 20 years, but my love affair with America started when I first spent two weeks on a road trip by myself, exploring California and its national parks ten years ago. The colossal size of the giant redwoods, the diverse wildlife, endless marked hiking trails and the sheer beauty of driving down coastal Highway 1 inspired me to get away more often and see as much of this part of the world as possible. I’ve found the USA to be an incredibly diverse country. Each state I’ve visited has something different to offer and endless opportunities to see and do new things.
Of all the places I’ve visited, Boston stands out for its significance in American history, Texas for the welcoming nature of the people, and Utah for some of the most impressive scenery you could ever imagine.
I'll never forget when…
What had already been a pretty special morning walking to Wapama Falls on my birthday, turned into a day I will never forget. On the way back from these little-known falls in the Hetch Hetchy area of Yosemite National Park, I was privileged enough to see a mother bear with her two cubs. They were just down the slope from me and I completely lost track of time while watching the mother forage for food while the cubs frolicked about oblivious to a growing crowd of onlookers. It was a magical experience I will cherish forever.
