Anonymous said: Owww ok my original q: Im hoping to make it to usa in the next few months, I have a friend living in NY I'll def visit but other than that I'm not really keen on planning etc. I wanna make it to the west coast too. Got any tips? Howd u do it, 4 how long? Ive kinda resigned to the fact that ill need to take all the $ il need with me as (its my idea that) work visas are real hard to get.. Basically i just wanna know what you planned and what you didn't. Plans n itineraries freak me out haha XXXXLU
Sorry it has taken me so long to reply to this! are you going solo? The first time i came here i travelled with a good friend very like-minded who was happy to go along with my vision, so i planned the map out of all the must see spots and had a look around online for car yards other then that we mostly went out on a whim bought the van and spent as much time as felt needed in each place we travelled through. Having enough money to get you by and what you want out of your trip is what you might want to think about but other then that it’s so much more fun not planning! I strongly suggest couchsurfing! i’m over here in the states by myself atm and not having any idea where i could be staying tomorrow or the next day, is what keeps the excitement in me. Right now i’ve found myself in an open attic of a discreet arts community in Los Angeles, i’ve become so inspired by everyone here and it’s just an opportunity you would never have when paying for a hotel etc..
Maybe if you have the money try hire a car for your west coast journey and then you have the back up of a car to sleep in :)
hope that helps, i’m feeling a little scattered this morning xxxxxxxx lots of love to you
