California City travelogue picture
USA - The land full of promises and dreams come true. I have visited the States at least ten times and have always been pleasantly surprised and amused by everything that are: BIG. Everything is BIG here: cars (a must in the States), buildings, bridges, coffees, food portions (until then I thought Belgium was the top leader...LOL) and All-U-Can-Eat Buffets, fridges and stoves, straight roads (not a single curve!), supermarkets, and much more...you name it! HUGE - The country ? it's vast! OPENNESS and KINDNESS -Everyone ? perfect strangers ? just start talking to you ... I wasn't used to that at all! First I was sceptic about all that HI, how are you today, Great..., HI, love your colorful shirt Miss... things, but soon got used to it and realised that it is only THE AMERICAN WAY of being nice and friendly :-) ! SMILE - The self-confident american smile with perfectly white teeth ? very recognizable

Favourite spots:

FLUENCY and EFFICIENCY Everything works perfectly: lines are organized for smooth queuings, directions well displayed, warnings given and sometimes you even don't have to think for yourself ? So, leave your brain at home and just listen and follow instructions (again can be frustrating at first...LOL)! JUNK and FAST FOOD -How amazing it was to try out a DRIVE-THRU fast-food restaurant: sit in your car, order, pay and EAT! Now we have them here as well but the first time I saw that kind of premises made me wonder. What is the point eating in your car!?? I still don't get it and find it far too messy-business for me! And I haven't mentioned yet the enormous quantity of various ready-made meals found in supermarkets!

What's really great:

These were only few things that hit and intrigued my mind over the past years and nowadays when I travel to US I can't find the same kind of excitement I used to -BUT I LOVE THE COUNTRY.
