When I was in college,I heard of a program that helps you to go to the United States to work and travel over the course of four months by finding a job for you and much more.I love traveling and new experiences,so I applied for the program,and I got selected.I spent 3 months working in Colorado,and I traveled around the Western Coast of the US in the last week I spent in the country.This is the itinerary I had:
In the first day of traveling I hopped on a flight from Denver,Colorado to Phoenix,Arizona.The price of the flight was $40,which is average,I'd say,for a 2-hour flight in the USA.I arrived in Phoenix at noon,so I had
a sandwich for lunch at a deli near the airport,and I was picked up by a friend and his wife,who were gonna be my hosts for the following two nights.
We went for a walk in downton Phoenix,and then we checked out the Heard Museum,dedicated to Native American art and culture.The admission fee was $18.The museum is very informative,as I learned a lot about the culture and the history of the Native American tribes,The museum has an extensive collection of art pieces and artefacts related to the Native American world,and I totally recommend it to anyone who finds themselves in the area.
We spent about 2 hours wandering,and then we headed to a bar to have a nice pint before going to rest at their place.
In the second day we woke up early to hit the road towards the state's northern borders,to see the iconic Grand Canyon.The entrance was free,because the guy had a ticket that granted him free entrance for a year,that he bought for $70
We arrived at the South Rim of the canyon,and we went on a guided tour on the Rim Trail.The fee was $55 per person and we got to see some mesmerising landscapes.The guide was a very likeable and knowledgeable person,and we got to see a group of elk in the forest.
It was very hot in some areas,but the landscapes we saw made up for it.It's truly an experience of a lifetime,you really have to see the canyon with your own eyes to see how massive and colorful it gets.
