🌎 Ever since finishing university 3 years ago, I have been full time travelling and volunteering for conservation projects. I absolutely love my lifestyle however can't lie tight budget is one of the downsides. Instead of giving up my travel dreams I just decided to become resourceful and find the perfect itineraries that still fit my tight budget and let me explore the world. Before every trip, I spend weeks planning and researching and it's one of my favourite parts of the adventure. However, I know it can be overwhelming and tedious at times so I decided to share my research and my itinerary with you. All places mentioned here are places where I have been/stayed/eaten myself and can give you an honest review. 🇺🇲 In fall of 2022 I backpacked through East coast of the USA by myself without a car. I was a bit sceptical how it would go since USA is not a very popular backpacker destination. But I was happily surprised how easy it was and kept going from New York down to Virginia, meeting new people on the way and exploring incredible places. 🗽In this guide, you'll find an itinerary through the USA meant to take you through 3 states throughout 14 days following my footsteps. You'll also find description of 2 day trip into 2 more states. I'll share with you my recommendations of where to stay and what to do as well as a detailed outline of the full cost which adds up to 490$ without day trips (accommodation and transport).
