Christy - Ordinary Traveler
Christy - Ordinary Traveler Hi guys, if you want to add North County San Diego to your itinerary, we would love to meet up. It's only about 1 1/2 to 2 hours from LA. The weather is usually nice in December. Send me an email if you decide to come this way. If you like the outdoors and amazing scenery, I would suggest visiting a couple of the National Parks in Utah. I wrote a post about Zion on my blog if you want to check it out. http://www.ordinarytraveler.com/articles/across-the-desert-with-no-a-c. It's about 7 or 8 hours from LA. Sounds like an awesome trip!
Lauren
Lauren Thanks for the recommendations Christy. We'd love to meet up with you guys!

Lauren **UPDATE** Unfortunately we've had to postpone this trip, but it will still happen! Some other opportunities have come up that seem more realistic for our *small* budget at the moment... as I hope most of you guys will understand just comes with the territory of travelling. Keep all the ideas rolling in though, as we'll pick where we left off when we come back to North America!

Lauren Hi Ted, there are quite a few people on here heading to SE Asia in the same time period as you guys. Check out a few of these trips that you might fancy meeting up with: http://globetrooper.com/critters-in-lembeh-manado-2010, http://globetrooper.com/thailand-laos-cambodia-vietnam-2010 and http://globetrooper.com/sailing-adventure-in-thailand-2010

Lauren Hey Douts, there's another trip on here by Whitlow that's similar: http://globetrooper.com/most-of-south-america-2010. I think she's travelling through Peru and Bolivia around the same time. Check it out.

rachel.louie hey guys!

I'm from Los Angeles, but will be at school in Pennsylvania, and my main suggestions are in my home state and are pretty much regarding food!

While in San Francisco, there are a few places I reccomend for eating:
1. Tadich Grill (mainly seafodd, the ciopinno & clam chowder are SO DELICIOUS)
2. Sears (its a breakfast place on Powell , famous for their "mini sweedish pancakes')
3. Cha Cha Cha ( Spanish tapas on haight St.)
4. R & G Lounge ( its a chinese food place and has a delicious Salt and Pepper Crab, plus the R&G special beef)

as for Los Angeles, you have to go to In 'n Out (its necessary) and to Pink's Hot Dogs. Consider hiking to the hollywood sign, its a lot of fun and won't be too hot during oct-dec. An interesting fact- the metro recently hired artists to redecorate popular stops and if you can actually take a tour of the decorated tunnels via the metro and its pretty awesome. Also check out Venice Beach, fun people!

One more thing in Boston, grab some desserts and pastries at a place called Mike's...its delicious!

Hope I could help, have a great trip and let me know if you'd like any other details!

Lauren
Lauren Hey thanks a bunch for your recommendations! I've heard so much about In 'n Out burgers that I'm so intrigued now, so that's a must. A hike to the Hollywood sign is a great idea as well as checking out the creative metro stations.

Danica This sounds like an amazing trip! I've been wanting to go on a road trip!

Portland, OR is awesome. Really pretty. I would say to go to the Rose Garden but it will probably be too cold then.

Yellowstone is great as well. If you go to a town right outside of the park, called West Yellowstone, there is a really great diner/soda shoppe and homemade water taffy shop across the street. It's a really cute town.

Just went to Boston and loved it! Go to the Union Oyster House restaurant, it's the oldest restaurant in america. It's pricey but really good. I would suggest sharing a plate cause it's a lot of food. Oh and get the clam chowder. Seeing all the stuff on the Freedom Trail is also really nice.

Austin is a nice city. I've been there a few times but haven't seen much apart from the University of Texas. I'd definitely have bbq and mexican food. A must for any trip to Texas.

I'm in Lubbock, TX right now for school and there's not much here. I'm from the Rio Grande Valley which is in deep South Texas, where South Padre Island is. As close as you can get to Mexico without being in Mexico. haha.

Have a great trip! :)

Danica
Danica Oh I would also try to go somewhere in Colorado and possibly Sante Fe, NM you can also see Roswell, NM (interesting town) on your way to TX.

Lauren Awesome Danica! Thanks for all the tips. And keep 'em coming guys! We will try and get around to a lot of these places and write-up about them in the blog. I've heard so many good things about Mexican food in the US. People who come to Australia (and we've also heard it here in Canada too) just say that there's nothing like it here. I like the sound of West Yellowstone too with cute little diners and soda shops. Thanks again!

Ashleigh
Ashleigh Hi there, I just discovered this site via Springwise. Awesome stuff! Give me a shout when you're in Vancouver, I'd love to meet you. If you're interested in going somewhere less urban while in the Pacific Northwest, I'd suggest hitting up Vancouver Island for a couple days, there are some gorgeous sights if you're into more nature/hiking activities... Also, your psychedelic, hippy van would be widely excepted by the locals. From the island you can ferry straight to Seattle. Email me if you're interested in meeting up in Vancouver or trip details: aschafer@me.com
Lauren
Lauren Hey Ashleigh - love your profile pic! Where was it taken? Would love to hook up with you in Vancouver, will let you know when a bit closer to the date.

Ashleigh Sounds good. The photo was taken by a frozen waterfall at the far end of Lake Louise (near Banff) in Alberta. It's definitely worth checking out while you're driving through the Rockies. The lake is gorgeous year round, a bit touristy but the hikes in the surrounding mountains are brilliant (the lake is notorious for its bright blue glacier water, but should be frozen over by December due to snow fall starting in early November). Also, check out the Rocks and Gems shop in Chateau Lake Louise.
