  3. hello there... i like your blog and have some recommendations...

    Colorado is where i live- beautiful mountains. specific mountain towns to visit are; Telluride, Durango, and between.
    The North West (Oregon, Washington and N. California) coastal area is awesome too! Portland and Ashland are favorites.
    Hope that helps a little.
    Have fun

    p.s. i'm thinking of moving to Southern Sweden... have you been there at all?

  6. At least Seattle and San Francisco.

    Personally, I would like to visit Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Boston, New York City...

    The middle part is probably nice as well. ;)

  7. I'm from the US (love your blog by the way) and if you're going to be here in July, you absolutely must be in New England (Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island or Connecticut) for our Independence Day on July 4th. I live in Mystic, Connecticut, which is a very beautiful small old port town. We have a great aquarium, a historic seaport, a lovely quaint downtown with a drawbridge and LOTS of sailboats ... and the restaurants are very good too! Feel free to email me if you want more information :) linneabelle@gmail.com

  8. 1. The City Museum in St. Louis (not exactly a museum and not really about the city) is one of the most delightful and joyful places I have ever been. It is difficult to describe, but basically it is a an building that is an art installation/giant playground for all ages. Don't skip the aquarium inside City Museum!! http://www.citymuseum.org/home.asp

    Other recommendations for weirdo things depending on where your route takes you:

    Mutter Museum- Philadelphia, Pennsylvania http://www.collphyphil.org/mutter.asp

    Museum of Holography- Chicago, Illinois (Holograms! This places is tiny, but so loveable. It will close soon because of money issues so you might want to hit it up on this trip) http://www.yelp.com/biz/museum-of-holography-chicago

    Museum of Jurassic Technology- Los Angeles, California http://www.mjt.org/themainpage/main2.html

    The 3-D Center of Art and Photography- Portland, Oregon

  9. vi kjørte fra new york til bl.a. boston og niagara fallene, skulle så gjerne hatt mer tid til å kjøre flere steder! (vi vurderte maine, men en professor vi bodde hos hadde vært i norge på sørlandet, og mente maine var for likt norge til at det burde prioriteres..:)
    vestkysten tror jeg er stas!

    (vi har en bok om new england dere kan låne hvis det skulle bli et aktuelt kjøremål)

  12. oh this sounds sooo good astrid!
    my cousin did a road trip from L.A. to N.Y. last summer. The middle is fairly bland, there were a couple hundred miles with plains and not much going on. I think that's the most stereotypical thing to do though--I'm sure you will come up with something much more exciting :)

  14. Moab, Utah is beautiful:

    Route 50 really is the loneliest road in the country. The views are amazing in certain parts, but it's the same thing after a while (and very straight!). I wouldn't drive it at night, since you have to watch out for cows and other critters, although it's pretty cool to get out of the car and hear nothing but bugs.

  15. Definitely the central coast of California. Gorgeous.

  16. If you want culture... east coast: Philadelphia, New York, Boston, DC.

    If you want great weather and beautiful scenery: west coast: Seattle, All of California, Colorado.

    Happy travels!
