Ah, North America, the amazing Metropolitan cities and it’s vast nature reserves.

“USA … USA … USA … USA … USA … USA!”. We were 15 minutes in New York, on the bus to another terminal, our first time in New York. A NewYorker (guess the sweather with “I’m New York” gave it away) just asked us where we were from. Guess our gazillion suitcases and Dutch language gave away that we were not from New York, which prompted him to beat his chest screaming “USA … USA … USA … USA … USA … USA!”. It was our strange welcome to the city that never sleeps.It is the typical confidence and bravado that is New York. You got to love it.

For business purposes, I have spent quite some time in New York. Besides that, the vast continent offers so many great places to hike – from Greenland (and it’s Arctic Circle Trail) to the Appalachian Trail and from the John Muir Trail to remote parts of Canada.On such a vast continent, there are some amazing hikes. A large Canada hike and/or thru-hikes of the Pacific Crest Trail and Appalachian Trail are still on my bucket list.I have so many memories here, but these are some of my favorites.
