United States of America – North and West

In 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 I went to the United States of America. In all 4 cases I was visiting family for a short period of time. Of course all of us are addicted to traveling so that’s what we did every time again.

2011 was the first time I ever had to give fingerprints and a webcam selfie of my eye at the airport. I was officially feeling like I was super cool like “omg I feel like a spy giving fingerprints and an iris scan” of course I’m now just a number registered in their database,  I only miss the tag in my ear.

In 2012 we went again with the idea of making a road trip from L.A. to San Fransisco and so we did, of course I do not travel 24/7 we also need time to shop! I bought a lot of clothes and shoes since the currency at that time was super positive for my wallet haha. Like Vans and Converse shoes, shoes could save me like 20 euro! even when these brands are on sale here in The Netherlands it was still more expensive here then in the USA. Right now the currency is on the same level.

In 2014 I think I went twice but this time to the north side, Chicago. My cousin lives there so we spend the holiday with him and his family. I must say Chicago is quite the lively city, huge city.

Have you ever been on Highway 1 the magic road? or Chicago the city of life? if not then my tip is, save some time to visit these places.

I’ll leave a great amount of pictures for you to look at. Since we’ve done so much in such a short time I have forgotten most of the places we’ve visited and the only way I can remember them is by watching these photos lol, of course most of our time spend there was with family, this I do remember lol.
