One thing that many people have asked me when they hear how much I want to travel outside of the states is "But what about all the places to see in the US?!" I get how some people can’t understand my desire to run away and explore other countries when I live in one that has so much to offer already.
A road trip across the US is like a right of passage for Americans, whether you are 18 or 80. It is such a vast country with everything from beaches to mountains to deserts and everything in between. The lakes, the big cities, the small towns…there is so much beauty to experience in my home country that I have yet to do.
