Next year I plan to travel the world (or as much as I can afford!) and my first destination is going to be the USA.
My original plan was to drive Route 66 this september with a friend but after a few delays he finally realised that he would never be able to afford it. Now though 2 of my friends have decided to have their stag do's in Las Vegas, and now it's all booked for March 2015!
Now my plan is to stay in America after I've done Vegas, I'll be doing it on my own but can't really decide the best way to go about it. Driving Route 66 on my own doesn't sound as good now though, not to mention expensive, so I've been looking at flying from Vegas to New York and then making may way to LA/California and stopping lots of places along the way!
I've looked at a few tour trips such as Trek America and STA Travel and found trips that would suit my budget and the itineraries tie in with most of the places/things I want to see but I'm not sure if I would enjoy being stuck to a schedule and also I can be a bit unsociable at times and find it hard mixing with new people (something im hoping travelling will change!)
The other option I've been looking at it travelling across by train/bus and staying in hotels and hostels along the way, booking things along the way with the freedom to change my mind at anytime.
I know that in the end its all down to me how I go about doing it but any advice from anyone who has ever done, or thought about doing it, your advice would be much appreciated!
By the way I forgot to mention my budget for the USA will probably be around £3000-£3500 and hoping to spend around a month travelling there.
