the united states

Consumerism, huge cities, rugged landscape and amazing National Parks are all alive and well here in the USA. I love exploring the differences across this broad country and seeing a little more each time I visit. 


USA

A nation full of surprises with an insane amount of variation depending on the region. I’ve been back four times now and haven’t even scratched the surface of just how amazing this country is.

The cities are huge, bustling and never seem to truly go to sleep. The nature and terrain is remarkably beautiful – even the deserts here are pretty stunning. There are countless wine regions across the country, an incredible number of national parks and beautiful mountainous areas that in winter are capped with snow.

Visited: California, Nevada, Arizona, Florida, Louisiana, Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, District of Columbia.
