Traveling North America in an RV for a year!

posted on 4th of september, 2009

Well I have the chance of a lifetime and I am traveling North America and photographing everything I can. I have I guess semi retired

at age 24 and will be heading back into real life I have an Rv and some maps and no schedule. It is fantastic! So far I have been all throughout Canada from the Pacific to Manitoba, Alaska, washington, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, Minnesota, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Illinois! I am having an amazing time, though internet and uploading pictures is hard on the road. I will be traveling non stop for another year or so. I love it o far and can't wait to be able to upload pictures to share! I am headed into Chicago tomorrow, does anyone have any suggestions of what to see? I definitely will go to the Art Museum, Photography, Contemporary art, Science and Natural History Museums.. any other suggestions? Thanks!!

Hey Vanessa - sounds amazing - am extremely envious - show us some shots of the real Chicago, down & dirty, not posh & fancy. Not that I mean Chicago is dirty....

Ooh, sounds wonderful! I would love to do that here in New Zealand, but it'll have to wait until my kids leave school. That will be a while as my youngest has only just started school. lol :0)

I will suggest that you keep a good journal. You will very much want to consider writing a book about the adventure.
