Travel Fair


Visited the yearly travel fair here in Oslo and did a little research on America. I've said this before, but one of the items on my bucket list is to travel to the U.S. Yes, never been there. The U.S. history is so mesmerizing and I've read a lot about it in my former years as a student. Something about it that captures my attention. The fair was great. And maybe a little trip to the States is gonna happen some time soon in my life. Can't wait. 

Any tips for a tourist with a big camera?

  1. I have only been ot America once, when we went to Ny for our honeymoon, it was amazing!

    And now I want to go back and see San Francisco; LA; Washington; and so much more.

  2. If you come to the USA, don't leave without visiting my little State: Rhode Island -you will love the history behind the city of Newport and the mansions since it relates to the slave trade.

  3. Hello from Utah, USA. The hard thing about the US is that it is SO big and SOO many places to see. Heck, I live here and I haven't even seen half of it. But if you ever make it out towards Utah, Zion's National Park is a must see! Absolutely gorgeous and great picture spot. Google it and you'll see what I'm talking about.

  6. I've lived in Mexico for 2 and a half years now, but my loyalty and love will always be with my country. As soon as I cross the border, I feel home. I've lived on the east coast and west coast, and think it is a country for everyone.

  7. Come to Minnesota! Whoop! America is so hard- because there is literally every type of climate to visit. It all depends what your budget/what you want to do! Hiking/skiing? Go to the rockies. Shopping? LA or New York. Camping/water activities? Midwest/Minnesota/Wisconsin. Southern lifestyle, spicy foods, and culture? New Orleans. There is literally everything. But if you like the history, I suggest the East coast! Boston, Washington DC, etc! Get to the original 13 states! Hahaha. Aaaa if you have any more questions, feel free to email me! :D

  10. Well, I live 45 minutes from San Francisco so I'm biased I suppose. I love northern California with the vineyards, redwoods, and Pacific Ocean all within a 60 minute drive. And there is nothing like seeing the Golden Gate bridge for the first time- its breath taking on a sunny day!

  11. Of course you have to come to CALIFORNIA. Yes there's disneyland and hollywood but if you travel up north to national forests like Yosemite and Sequoia you will be taking pictures like crazy because these places are wonderful! <3
    Washington DC, Grand Canyon, Florida are really nice places.

  13. You should look into Couch Surfers!
    http://www.couchsurfing.org/people/coleyc/

    It's free, so maybe you'll be able to see more that way. I'm from Georgia, USA and love it, but there are so many different places to visit across the country.

    The Northeast is probably a good place to start if you're into the history.

  18. Thanks For "making a wish" in my blog =).

    I've never been in U.S.. But loved to travel there and get to know several cities! I think NY is essential and can not miss on your priority list to visit;). Although I'm on the edge of Europe is still too expensive to do such a trip ... but no doubt that one day i Will visit the US.

    Makes very good trip and above all have fun

  20. Having lived in the United States my entire life and traveled most of the country there really is so much to see. If you are looking for some highlights, I really would recommend the West Coast.

    California is a great start. There is Tahoe, San Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Zion, San Fran, Napa Valley, Palm Springs. Great weather with a very out door beachy vibe. State of the 'stars' so they say..Transportation is iffy so you'll have to rent a car, take a bus, or a plane.

    If you're looking to immerse yourself in a city, then I'd suggest New York, Washington D.C., or Boston, lot's of history, art, culture...You are in the heart of the country and unlike California the transportation is set up to take you anywhere. There are also some wonderful little towns around the north east (Kennebunkport-Maine, Burlington-Vermont (to name a few). And if you are in NYC (I suggest Soho and Brooklyn ...very artsy). Washington DC (I suggest checking out Georgetown). There is a lot to see around these areas, so if you're looking for a low key, relaxing getaway, this problem isn't the choice for you...but if you want to see and learn a lot about the United States, this would be your best bet.

    And if you're looking to see some amazing geography I suggest Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona. You've got the Grand Canyon and The Rockies ...which are phenomenal places to see. (Once again transportation is hard to come by, like California...you'll need to rent a car, take a bus, or plane.


    Lastly if you are looking for a place to just lounge and relax, I suggest Hawaii. It's beautiful, relaxing, and has a very earthy vibe.
