My boyfriend and I spent most weekends of summer '08 travelling around Alberta, but we decided that this summer we want to go on a big road trip! We are both 19, love the outdoors and excitement and love any kind of fun. So we are going for 23 days, May 16-June 7. Starting from Edmonton, Alberta, down to Anaheim where we will be staying for 12 days. We are going to explore the popular areas like Disneyland, Los Angeles, San Diego, etc. Then we are travelling to San Francisco and staying there for one night. Then off to North Bend, Oregon to camp for 2 nights in the dunes and ride quads on the dunes. Next, we head into Canada to stay in Vancouver for 3 nights with family, then Summerland for one night, and then Radium Hot springs for one night and back home we go.
We have booked our hotels, done a lot of research, and determined our budget and how much we need to save.
I was just wondering if anyone has any more advice towards money saving tips, ways to eat and be healthy on a road trip, and any problems we might run into. Also, what is california like at the end of may, and if there are any really special, unique places that anyone knows of it would be great to hear from you :)
