It’s been forever. That first.

Second. I’ve been working my a** off. I’ve got a new trip planned and I’m super excited to go! In the beginning of April 2018 I’ll be flying to San Francisco and from there I’ll be road tripping around the country. I’m going with two friends from filmschool so I’m sure we won’t be lacking footage to create a travel video. πŸ˜‰ WeΒ planned out most of the route in advance and once we land, the adventure begins. Not gonna lie, I’m a little anxious but super thrilled in the same time.

It took us a while to actually figure out the route. At first we even wanted to add a little part of Canada to the trip. Eventually we decided to skip Canada, because we would be driving through the snow all the time and most of the lakes we wanted to visit to canoe (like Lake Louise and Moraine Lake) would still be frozen in April. Doesn’t matter, that gives us an excuse to come back. πŸ˜‰ Not that I need an excuse, just ten more jobs haha.

Alright, this is what we came up with. (Don’t mind my messy drawing on the map and forget about that little car sign with the ’30 u’ Β next to it, it’s not relevant.)

What I like the most about this trip is that the nature changes every single day, we go from a lake in Tahoe, to geysers in Yellowstone, to canyons close to Williams and we can’t forget about the desert. Also,Β there is a lot of variety in the weather. In Yellowstone you’ll probably be wearing your wintercoat in April, while in Palm Desert shorts are more suitable. Like I said, variety. Something different every single day, I love that, especially after having traveled such distances.

Also, I’m not much of a city girl, but San Francisco and Los Angeles are such enormous and iconic cities, that I’m sure checking out the area for a few days will be a really cool experience as well.

But, I’m actually sharing the trip because I would like to get some insider tips from people who know the area. So, if you have any recommendations about good restaurants, unique shops or beautiful parks/places to visit, let me know. I would really appreciate that! (Keep in mind, we are on a budget haha) πŸ˜‰

A lot of people usually contact me throughΒ InstagramΒ but feel free to comment down below or use the email adres on the ‘Message Me – page.’

Alright, till another time!

Love, Sofie

    That sounds like an epic trip! My boyfriend and I were thinking of doing an American road trip next year with some of the locations that you mentioned πŸ™‚ and as a Canadian I hope you do come visit some time, but in the summer. You’ll probably enjoy it much more haha.

      That sounds so good! I would really love to visit Canada and go to Banff and Jasper NP. Also, I’ve heard that whale watching in Vancouver really is something special. I would love to see it for myself, but of course it comes down to luck if you see the animals or not.
      If you live anywhere close to the Canadian west coast I would suggest driving straight down to the USA and make a stop at Olympic National park (close to Seattle.)
      Seriously, I have been reading all about it and it’s on the top of my bucket list, you should look it up if you haven’t heard about it already!

      Thanks for taking the time to write me and enjoy your weekend! x
