Im travelling round America next year from May - July and whilst i am going alone, it would be nice to travel with someone. Anyone going around that time and fancies meeting up for part of that time??

Have you any ideas whereabouts in the USA you want to go? I'm heading off for a year in Australia around September 2005, and thinking about spending the summer in the USA and Canada as a stopover on the way. I'd like to do some travelling in British Columbia and the Rockies and then the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas and California.

Anyone else have similar plans?

Clare :)

Hi Clare,

Wow your trip sounds cool! :) How long you travelling for? Im hoping to go to US for 3 months, gona start in New York and travel by train over to California, stopping off at various places along the way, then plannign to spend about 3 weeks in California (might even hire a car!) checking loads out there. After that im back on the train heading towards Texas & Atlanta (got family there) then upto Pensylvania (more family!), up to Boston then back to New York for a week before flying home!

Thats the plan anyway! :)

When are you gona be in California? Il be there from about 20th May - 10th June.

I have family in Texas too so I'll probably see them if I can fit it in. My brother lives in Austin - where in TX will you be?

Am really just in the planning stages at the moment, but I could be in California in May-June depending on when I decide to quit my job here (at the moment I feel like doing that sooner rather than later!) I spent two weeks travelling there in 2002 and spent time in LA, Yosemite and San Francisco but I'd still like to go to San Diego and across to the Grand Canyon etc. as I missed out on them last time.

I spent a very short time in Boston on a Contiki tour last year and I loved it, so I would definitely recommend that you should spend some quality time there!

I have to be careful how much I spend in the States and Canada as don't want to end up arriving in Australia having spent all of my money (even though I can work there) - so I can't go everywhere I want to unfortunately! But hopefully I can see a few places anyway.

Well good luck!

Hi Cindy.

Where in the West are you looking to stop off and for how long? You'll have seen from my messages what my very vague plans are - will you be driving through California, Nevada, Arizona etc?
