I just stumbled upon this site whilst doing a bit of googling...
Im 47 yrs young and planning to go to North America in May /June this year.
I will spend about 70 percent of my time travelling alone and as Ive never ever travelled alone before Im hoping some of you can give me some good tips.
I plan to land In LA and then take the train from LA up the west coast to Seattle... then Across Montana .. Dakota to St Pauls. ( I will be met by friends in Seattle and over in St Pauls) Then down to St Louis and across Kansas over to Colorado.
Denver down to Las Vegas and back to LA ... LA down to San Diego .
Im allowing 6 to 8 weeks...
Full on.... I know.. but I think the whole train thing will be right up my alley and that I will get to see lots of the the US countryside which holds more appeal to me than the cities... I think.
As Ive mentioned Ive never travelled overseas and Im sure it will be an eye opener and that I will learn lots about the country and about myself One of my reasons for going is to sort of challenge myself.. get out of my comfort zone etc and add some excitement to my life.
thanks for any advice you might be able to give me.
