    My family went on a Great American Road Trip a few summers ago. I wasn’t too happy at first (what 14 year old wants to spend 3 weeks away from her friends in the summer?) but after the very first night, I was totally into it.

    I met a beauty queen at a rodeo (to which I would no longer attend b/c animal abuse), discovered Taco John’s potato-ey fritter thingies, fell in love with the smell of a campfire, pumped gas for the first time (at a SEEMINGLY ABANDONED GAS STATION), and saw a lightning storm on a plain from miles away.

    I always dream of doing just this. Hopefully one day I can!! (I live in Australia) Paris, Texas is one of my all time favourite movies. And so many other films inspire me with America/on the road/nostalgic vibes, such as 3 women.

    The ice on the grass is so pretty… I also loved the picture of the train. I am kind of obsessed with trains wherever I go, even though there are tons of them around where I live as well. Standing close to the tracks as they pass by and you can feel the rumble through your whole body… Ahhhh.

    Even Americans have dreams of going on the Great American Roadtrip :) I especially dream of going out to the deserts and the Grand Canyon out in Arizona/Nevada. Your trip looked fun, great photos!
