Travelling across America isn’t usually a starting point for most backpackers but we thought we would break the mould! This is where our journey began, we flew from the UK to Los Angeles and a 7 week adventure across America began.
America isn’t cheap, well it is compared to the UK, but when travelling on a budget it’s difficult to get around and hostels are few and far between so accomodation costs are high. None the less, it isn’t called the greatest country in the world for no reason and for us it was somewhere we had to explore.
Whilst in America we explored 13 states and travelled from the West coast right over to the East, with Route 66 and numerous stops in between. Check out our travel guides below on the top places we visited for tips, advice, our thoughts and recommendations.
