This trip is certainly one of the best ways to see so much of America, and you even get to spend a week in Canada! I could list all of my highlights but we could be here a while, everyday was a highlight with quite a few days having more than one highlight!
I never thought I would get to see the Grand Canyon let alone walk down into it and take a helicopter flight over it! I thought Las Vegas was a place I would only ever see in 'the hangover'. I thought Washington, D.C. Was all about politics and the White House, not one of the most amazing cities I would ever visit! I could never see myself walking through a town wearing a tin foil hat! Chicago style pizza is amazing nothing like what they try and fob us off with over here!
Our tour guides were amazing and I have made so many great friends that I am still in contact and meeting up with over a year later!
I have always enjoyed camping but I did think this would take it out of me, how wrong was I, I found myself not being able to sleep in a bed by the end of the trip and preferring the tents!
So many times I stood in a national park looking at the amazing views, hiking through a gorge in Zion n.p, up a glacier in glacier n.p, watching a moose or bear or listening to a waterfall and the only thought going through my head when taking the photo was, this photo is not going to give this place justice and how can I put it into words when showing people back home, and still a year later I can't explain the beauty and the feeling I felt but it will be with me forever as a beautiful memory.
I have photo's, videos and memories to treasure forever (plus a few great friends) I learnt so much about myself on this trip. I learnt so much about America and its history. It truly is an amazing trip, and trek America are a fab company to travel with, even though I've seen a lot on trailblazer I'm still going back for 2 more trek trips next year!
