My trip through the USA, UK and Europe (Band Width warning)

So on the 1st of April i set out on 3 months travel through the UK, Belguim, Luxembourg, Italy and the USA. As is logical I'm starting with the USA, NY and SF are by far my favorite cities.

New York








Rockerfeller


My first time spotting this magnificant piece art






The M&M store!








Street preformers that were very vocal about not doing drugs or alcohol




Ground Zero










The owner of this bag just didn't seem to care.....










And for my b'day i got to go to the top of this baby!






























Jersey City across the river


Time Square at night














My friend who i was traveling with is russian and had heard of a russia town at brighton beach, needless to say it was way more russian than we expected and she didn't want to leave.


And for our last night in NY we stayed in brooklyn












For anyone looking to travel around the nth/east coast i highly recommend boltbus over greyhound




Boston

Gates to Harvad Uni












































Chicago
Stormy arrival in the windy city!






The viewing platforms in the willis tower








Took a bit of guts to do this....




An insane person






























What a park should be for






The vast majority of the water in lake mishigan is so blue because it is left over from the last ice-age.












The Chicago style pizza! (took 2 days to eat this monster)








The last 2 days were quite foggy




,Los Angeles






One of my favorite TV franchises


Santa Monica














Beverly Hills area






By far my most liked place in LA Venice beach


With a bit of aussie influence...




















San Fransisco


























Walking through golden gate park, every feature of the park you had to pay to access (like $7 for the botanical gardens)




Part of the park dedicated to AIDS victims




Green roof of the Californian Academy of Science, A must if you like science or just arcitecture




The Japanese Gardens




















,Portland








Went for a walk through Washington park




















Seattle
















These were everywhere, totally ruins the cafe scene
















Found this fantastic little cupcake place on 6th street








Texas/Dallas
Sam Houston the Father of Texas


Went camping on the beach in Freeport with a mate from Dallas on memorial weekend




















The window which JFK was shot from








Washington DC




WW2 Memorial














The thomas Jefferson Memorial






The WhiteHouse






Vietnam memorial




Lincon memorial


















Newseum: the history of journalism and free speech (phone hacking not included)




The smithsonian Castle












And the last stop before i go back to London?
New York


Chinatown
















After seeing Chinatown i walked down Broadway to TQ






















And on my last day i took a stroll through central park
