USA & Puerto Rico

Some call it “the land of dreams”, and we are on a mission to find out why!

Whether it is thanks to something positive or negative, the USA never ceases to amaze us. We have done several trips in the country, from urban stays in New York City, Chicago, New Orleans or San Francisco, to nature oriented adventures in the National Parks, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. We even got married in Las Vegas!

These are some of our best travel stories, inspired by hours of driving around the USA, listening to local music, watching American movies and a few too many burgers:

In Hawaii, we experienced a different side of the USA. In fact, depending on the setting, you’d almost forget these islands are a part of the same country. We tried stand up paddle for the first time in Maui and stayed at the most incredible tree house inside a volcano in Big Island. We’d love to go back one day!

Our latest trip to the US took us to Puerto Rico. During our entire stay in this beautiful territory, we couldn’t help but think how Puerto Ricans get the raw end of the deal when it comes to being American. They are neither here nor there, as they are limited by rules crafted in the mainland, yet they do not get to enjoy all the same rights folks in the continent do. Politics aside, we had an incredible time exploring the stunning coast of Puerto Rico and getting serendipitously lost and found in random charming towns.
