As the very last month of my beautiful US life was so full of impressions, adventures and experiences, I will summarize it with some pictures.

It was an amazing East to South time with first Larissa & Matthew:

  • DC luggage struggles (Laura’s apartment did not open for me)
  • im Schlamm versinkende Lisa in Greensboro
  • National Whitewater Center in Charlotte (ziplines, climbing, incredible heat)
  • No bars for underaged humans
  • Biggest Aquarium in Atlanta with sharks, whales, crocodiles and sealions
  • Atlanta’s (suburb) tiniest firework on 4th July
  • Superlong drives and empty Montgomery (Alabama) with ‘horrible one way streets’
  • New Orleans, its galleries, French Quarter, cute shops but not umhauende Beignets at Cafe du Monde
  • Houston Space Center and beautiful Waterwall
  • the most stupid Highway from Houston to Austin (tolls, tolls, tolls)
  • Austin’s Graffity Wall
  • Laundry stealers
  • Airport hangouts

The Westcoast part with Annika, Thies and Basti was full of hiking, climbing and exploring adventures

  • Las Vegas’ fakeness
  • Hoover Dam’s crazy (real!) line with an Arizona and Nevada side (also different time zones)
  • Beautiful National Parks with hiking, missing the bus, more hiking
  • Colorful Route 66
  • Great and horrible Mexican restaurants
  • Overwhelming Grand Canyon
  • Risky handstands..
  • Missed sunrises
  • Gorgeous sunsets
  • Diverse, WINDY San Francisco with curvy, hilly streets, expensive streetcars, nice biking and a popular bridge
  • Schminking experiments
  • Car doubts
  • Freezing Lake Tahoe
  • Sad and nice DC
