North America

For now, my travel experience in North America is limited to a single trip. But what a trip it was! In 2019, I spent 6 months crossing the US and Canada with my backpack. From north to south and east to west. It was an unforgettable adventure and I had an amazing time getting to know the continent.

This page is a collection of all the travel guides I have written about the USA and Canada. With tips on budget travel, things to do and see in major cities and the best places to visit in North America.
