melanie I'm doing something fairly similar check out my trip:) Also, I am from California so you could stay at my house and I could show you all around Los Angeles and California! And you do the same for me in Germany! Let me know
melanie This sounds like an amazing trip! I wasn't planning on traveling to europe just to keep the price down (I'll also be there in May-June of this year so I don't see the purpose of going twice) but check out the trip I created! Maybe we could meet somewhere along the way.
