a place I've always wanted to see; USA.

If you've been following me for a while or you know me well enough, you'll know my dreams to travel. My biggest dream being America, the U.S of A!! 
Since I was a child, spending hours watching American TV series (saved by the bell, sabrina, mary-kate and ashley, etc.) I've wanted to explore this country and yes, ALL the states. Wanting to visit as many tourist places as possible, whether they're famously known or I've seen them in my favourite tv shows. 


In fact I've been that hopeful to go travelling, I've considered jumping into friends suitcases when they're lucky enough to go. When I was 17 I began to plan a once in a life-time opportunity which was to go travelling through Camp America, after deciding I wanted to go on a road trip across america, obviously with the roof down on a classic chevy (yknow like they did in the S Club tv series?). First I was going to make this a 5 year plan, working in areas for a certain amount of time and working to save my money to travel to my next destination, honestly I'd still love to do that…But when I realised that this plan was a little too unrealistic for a girl almost turning 18, my dad told me about Camp America. Working over their in their summer camps for a few weeks, make money and friends before having a few more week (until the VISA runs out) to travel as much as possible. 
The plan fell through, after attending meetings and even travelling down to London for the weekend in the hope to find myself a camp, I said goodbye to that dream and would plan to return the following year, with more confidence and a little more mature. To this day this plan is yet to happen and after just turning 21 I'm devastated that it went this way, after being told that being in a relationship would be difficult when being thousands of miles away, and knowing how much Tom wants to visit America just like me, instead of going alone I now get to plan/dream about going with someone I love, so that's more exciting than camp America any day! 

I was going to make this into one big post, but with all the places I want to see it's best I put this into a series. So more of these travel posts to come. Telling you stories and showing you the places I've always wanted to see.
...I'm not the only one who wants to visit America am I?

  1. Just so you know, I made a relationship last that was thousands of miles apart - I was in the US while my guy was in the US (where I now live) - so it certainly is doable! Traveling around America is fun through, although I haven't really seen much although I have been to four states now although they are all here in the Mid West and not in the big tourist states.

    Not surprising for me but I actually prefer visiting the non tourist attractions - that shows you the real America, get off the freeway onto the smaller roads and you'll see what America is really like - the local diners, dive bars, all the family run stores.

  3. That's so funny because I live in the US and the place I've always wanted to visit is Great Britain (and just the UK in general)! We definitely have a glamorized image in the media--which I don't necessarily agree with, but I guess living somewhere for a long time means that you don't see it the same way as someone first traveling to it sees it (if that's even coherent enough to make sense). Good luck on achieving your dream!

  5. I love travelling in America it is definitely worth saving up for. I did Camp America when I was 22, my boyfriend stayed at home but met me for the travelling part once I had finished working. It was hard but both experiences were incredible.
