4th of July. Independence Day in the United States of America. The last time I was in the United States was in 2019, visiting my uncle. Danny‘s last time was in 2017, when he visited New York and Washington, DC with Ivan in 2017. In 2016, we travelled across America by train. That all feels…
We travelled to some pretty awesome destinations, stayed at extraordinary hotels, travelled along most scenic routes and experienced some pretty amazing activities, museums or other things to do. Here’s the best of 2019.
