Hello from Norway

Travel Forums Introductions Hello from Norway

1. Posted by Verdani (First Time Poster 1 posts) 9y

I am a girl from the cold land in the North, longing for some sun and the gooood life:) I was on a website and I saw the link to this site and I thought that it could be very interesting to use the forum and the rest of the site. My budget set my limitations, but I am a real dreamer when it comes to traveling. I am specially interested in traveling to the USA, at first, but I also have other countries and places that I burn for...I think that I will enjoy and learn a lot from this site. I also hope that someone maybe could give me some advices about travelling through the US in a car, both big tourist places that you just need too see in a lifetime, but also the smalltowns and what you need to do there. I want to be in the American Dream, if only for small moments:) Firstly I thought that I should take the trip from San Fransisco down to Los Angeles.

Stupid Dreamer - that is what I am!

Welcome to TP Guro!!!

Nope, as Purdy said, no such thing as a stupid dreamer. If you want to see the world, all you have to do is plan (and save money, or marry a rich person ) And you found the right place for help making your plans.

As for seeing the USA, I highly recommend it. You won't believe the people you meet (that's usually a good thing). Big cities tend to be a little more difficult to drive around in, because there is so much traffic, usually in a hurry. Small towns are much easier to drive in, and country roads, probably the best.

San Fran-LA is about 450 miles, depending on your route. It could take as little as 7 hours (not recommended - not very scenic), or as much as a week. I would recommend taking Highway 101 for the one of the most beautiful drives in the world...and it's not that crowded. Google "Highway 101/California" for a map and pictures of some of the sights along the way.

Enjoy

Hi Guro!

Welcome to TP!!

I have to agree with Purdy and Beerman! Stupid Dreamer? No such animal!!

TP is a great place for gathering information and getting lots of help! And, if you want to see some of the unusual around the US - here's a site that is just fun to check out. I have chosen the California page for you. (Quite a few of the attractions listed have links. If nothing else, it's fun reading.)

Welcome again and hope to see you in the forums!!!

Really, who wouldn't want to see the Jelly Belly Factory or the World's Largest Thermometer??!! ;)
