Our journey continued out of Yellowstone and onwards towards Grand Teton National Park. It wasn’t long before the mountain range flooded through the front window of the van, looking absolutely surreal. It wasn’t everyday you had a view like in front of you.

Yellowstone National Park. Oh boy, oh boy. Our first full day in Yellowstone involved us getting up at 3am so we could be in the park, ready to spot wildlife at 4.

And now what?
So here it is, the day I’ve been fantasising about since I fell in love with the USA; the day I finally get to cross the tiny pond called the Atlantic Ocean and explore America. So. Damn. Excited. Obviously. My suitcase is all packed (aside from my toothbrush .. and raincoat .. and trainers..) and… Continue reading FINALLY: Hello, USA
