I am a road geek, a map geek and a travel geek and I’m really interested in all things American. From geography to politics, from history to culture, from sport to music. In the last few years I have travelled extensively around the USA and bits of Canada clocking almost 65,000 kilometers (over 40,000 miles) so far. On the map below you can see some of my past journeys (I haven’t add the latest ones yet). I have visited some of the highlights of America (like Yellowstone, Yosemite and San Francisco) but also some remote towns and low key attractions like the Idaho Potato Museum in Blackfoot or the North Dakota State Capitol in Bismarck. I’m not entirely sure what I really prefer.
I have now visited all of the lower 48 states (however briefly some of them) and aim to see all 50, hopefully soon. That means Alaska and Hawaii are awaiting me. Unfortunately these are distant and expensive places to visit so it might take me a while. But hey, you always need some ambitious target in life. I will get there.
In the meantime I’m slowly clocking Canadian provinces as well. After last trip I’m at five which mans I have visited half of them (excluding the territories). I wonder what I finish first. 10 provinces of Canada or 50 states of the USA.
On this blog I share some of my adventures and enthusiasm and offer a few tips for your own travels. Feel free to comment and ask questions, especially if you need driving or map advice, and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
