For those of you who have no idea what I am on about, I have booked a month long trip for next summer trekking the south of America! Some of the highlights being the Grand Canyon, New Orleans, spending the 4th of July in Washington and of course going to Newyork!
I have wanted to travel for as long as I can remember. And after leaving college I really wanted to do something like camp America, trek America or just go travelling with friends but after deciding not to go to university I thought it was best to get a job first and to get started with a career before jet setting off all over the place!
I am extremely lucky that I am settled in a well paid, good job that has given me the opportunity to take a month off which will enable me to fulfil my need/desire to go explore America!
And as I am 21 next year I wanted to do something big and exciting to celebrate!
I have been planning this for a while now and after being stuck for choice, I managed to narrow it down to two trek options! And in the end I decided to book the southern BLT tour. The deciding factor for me was the length of time I’m going for I didn’t really want to be camping for the whole experience… Which the other tour would have meant. This tour is staying in hotels and hostels.
If you aren’t sure what I am going on about or haven’t heard of trek America before you can check out their website here! But they are basically a travel company/tour service which provide loads of different tours around America and Canada! Each tour has a package price which includes the travel and accommodation plus a few extras, you can also book your flights through them but you must book them separately. You can pay it off in instalments too which makes things a bit more manageable.
Now I have booked my trek it’s all about the planning! Luckily as its a tour company the trip is all planned for me so I know where I will be each day as they provide an itinerary. However I need to get lot of stuff and also organise things such as hotels before and after the trek as I am planning on staying out there longer.
Are you planning on doing trek America or something similar? Have you been on trek?
