Back to the roots

New York There I was – back where my trip had started. For my last two nights in the States I booked a nice hotel in the middle of Manhattan (one block from the Empire State Building). It was well worth it to spend a little bit more per night than three months ago. From […]

Washington, D.C.

Washington D.C. It hasn’t been long since I was in Washington but after Chicago it was time for a little bit more Washington. Not back to Seattle (which is in the state Washington) but rather to one of the few places under direct control of the US government: Washington D.C., the capitol of the United […]

Chilling Chicago

Chicago The beginning (of travelling on my own) of the end (of my journey) started in Chicago. I was looking forward to seven relaxing nights.

Los Angeles Zum Zweiten

O.C. California After leaving San Diego we booked a motel room in Newport Beach which is part of Orange county. Orange county is technically not a part of Los Angeles but it kind of belongs to it.

San Diego

Drive to San Diego We didn’t have a long walk after we said goodbye to my parents to our new mode of transportation. After some 100 feet, we stood before the SIXT rental location. We didn’t chose the cheapest car to rent but I think we still got a car in a more premium class […]
