  The Chatter Box : Travel
Around America for 2 months... by doodlebugamy on 31 October 2008 2:02pm
Hi everybody!

My friend and I are hoping to travel around America next summer. Neither of us drive so it's all going to be by public transport which I think will prove more interesting than driving anyway.

We're starting in New York then travelling through Chicago, Cheyenne, and over to San Francisco. We're then going through Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, Texas, New Orleans, Georgia, North Carolina and then back to New York again. Fingers crossed.

It's going to be a challenge to get it all done in 2 months but with just a few nights in each place I think we'll manage.

Lots of people have said to me "Why would you want to go to America?" and the reason is that there is so much there that people don't realise - wide open countryside and big crowded cities. I just think it has everything and the experience will be very interesting.

Anyway, we are on very limited funds and I was hoping some of you may be able to offer any suggestions at all as to ways in which we can save money. We're happy to live it rough!

Thanks very much - any suggestions greatly appreciated!
