The time in the US was one of the most exciting experiences in my life so far. In the beginning, I have never thought that this time would change me that much. I have always been a big fan of the United States. Whether if movies, literature or art, I admired everything, which comes from overseas. I did not like it, if people spoke bad about America, although they have never been there. I always wanted to get my own idea of the country and so it was certain for me: I want to go to the US!
The way to the States is definitely a long-haul flight and should be planned for longer periods. You really have to ask yourself, if the financial and temporal input is worth the project. As one thing is clear: You can also find something in South-America or Australia, where it is as beautiful as in the US, but where you do not have to spend so much money.
