After travelling North-America and leaving to South-America, here some of our Travel facts & figures:
Since we left Bayreuth we spent 79 nights in foreign beds.
40 of those we stayed in hotels (this was the nicest one in Miami!):
37 nights we camped:
Way of Travel:
The last three months we took the plane only twice: from Frankfurt to Vancouver and from Los Angeles to Miami. In Canada and Alaska we drove around 12800 km and in the USA about 4000 km with our rentals. For the short trip from Vancouver to Seattle we took an Amtrak bus (response to our complaint still outstanding…).
US States Traveled:
We crossed the following 9 US states:
We really liked the colorful licence plates from the different states. Or did you know, that Idaho is famous for its potatoes?
Lost & Found:
Since we are traveling with already quite full backpacks we strongly restricted ourselves with shopping 🙁
During our time in North-America we only bought few small things, e.g. a T-shirt, a pair of shorts, a pair of swim shorts (replacement for the torn ones) and two beanie hats. And not to forget the gold, we panned in Alaska!
Sadly Martina already lost her new beanie 🙁 We also forgot our two waterproof iPhone cases in the Canadian rental car (it just had too many compartments…). Also we are missing one of our titanium spoons! But I guess that’s a good average of loosing things during several months of travel.
We were eating such a variety of food in the last three months and we already shared much of it with you.
Some of it was very healthy:
Some was more junky:
Some was very sweet:
Most of it was really great, but some was just to satisfy hunger:
Now we are really looking forward to traveling South-America. It’s the first time for both of us (except Andys various early childhood Brazil experiences) and our Spanish is very basic!This entry was posted in North-America, WorldMap and tagged Facts & Figures
