Destination USA & Canada
Whoa ho! The USA and Canada - the world's third- and second-largest countries - offer heartbeat-skipping moments on the countless miles (or kilometers) stretching from sea to sea. Highlights start in the cities - big-time 21st-century wonders where international communities zip around on well-oiled public transport - and continue in the sticks, where you'll find canyons the color of red fudge, moose sipping from your swimming hole, rocky-top mountains coated in snow and head-butting goats, banjo or blues or rural chitchat on the AM dial, big-buckled cowboys saying 'yup' at fillin' stations and surfers saying 'dude' by the beach, kitschy over-sized cows at stop-offs under big skies the size of worlds, and fresh buffalo hoof-creased blades in tallgrass. The people - a smiling bunch often - ain't bad either.
Save for getting around, it can be done on the cheap. Fifteen-buck hostels and free campsites abound, looks at landmarks from the Statue of Liberty to the Golden Gate Bridge are free, and specialty meals sell for prices that keep locals' eyebrows in place. It's car country, yessirree - and god it's good to see with a set of wheels - but so much can be seen by bus, train, cycle or boot too.
It's big, this USA and Canada stuff. Worth the hype? Yup.
