Travel Reports » USA


We love to travel the USA. We like the country, the people, the nature, the cities, shopping and in general the incredible diversity of this continent. From deserts to swamps, huge mountain ranges, virgin forests, beautiful beaches, glaciers, cities with over a million inhabitants or lonely prairies – the USA is characterized by an incredible variety of landscapes. So far we have been together in New York, Washington, Philadelphia, Orlando, Miami, Denver, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Hawaii and have explored fascinating national parks like Yellowstone National Park, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park, Big Island Volcanoes National Park, Waimea Canyon, Napali Coast and of course the Everglades National Park in Florida.
