The Road Trip
“Kicking what off? Travel? Aren’t you already on the road?”
Yes, yes I know, I am. But sometimes you need to stop and look around, or more like look inside of yourself. That’s what I did for last four weeks. After I got on the plain to America, it has been a busy month, that’s for sure. I met lots of people, haave done some touristy sightseeing, working through social media, and most of all, thinking about past, now, and future.
The road trip was one of the plans I wanted to do in America. It was more like ‘if I go to America someday’ plan but it’s my reality now. This road trip is not so ‘grand’ per se, like I thought when I wrote down my bucket list. However, it means something because it’s something that I always wanted to do. Consider where I grew up is just a size of one state – Indiana in the United States, it’s pretty big thing for sure.
For how long?
This road trip is going to last about six weeks, give or take. Sadly, I have to be out of the country by end of September due to the visa stuff. I don’t want to be banned from the country, so I’d better follow their rules. But six weeks going to be full of awesomeness, I bet.
Where I’m going?
About places, there is just only one anchor in this plan – New Hampshire. Stephen from BohemianTraveler.com is going to be my travel companion on this road trip, and I got invited his friend’s wedding in New Hampshire. (My first American wedding experience, yay!) When, where, what, other than New Hampshire is just totally on the air. Nothing’s certain. That’s part of the charm, right?
Though, there is a plan. New England is a basic plan, and there’s a wish list, at least.
Places that on the list are..
– Gettysburg, Philadelphia
– Finger Lakes region, Albany, New York City, Brooklyn
If things are going well.. Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec
and back to Virginia
Pretty wicked plan, don’t you think? Camping and hiking in New Hampshire and Vermont would be amazing, I bet. If I visit Finger Lakes, I would be high with all the happiness from all the wineries. Six weeks are just not enough. Actually, three months travel in the US is not enough. Well, that’s another problem in another time. Focusing on next six weeks for now.
If you are going to be in the region that I’m heading, and if you are interested in meeting Runaway Juno, please do let me know. If you have a spare couch, I’m humbly taking your offer. 🙂
Runaway Daily: USA
In honour of Kicking Off the Road trip, I’m kicking off “Runaway Daily, USA”. I’m not certain about wi-fi situation for now, but I will try to broadcast the trip, day after day. I’m sure America will not disappointed me with the internet. Oh well, I’ll find out soon enough.
Please tune in, and give me your advises about USA road trip!
My first Runaway Daily: USA – Day 00 is for Fredericksburg, Virginia. I took these photos a while ago when I walked around the down town. Not so much ‘Daily’, but it’s for me, honouring this homey town. Fredericksburg is a starting point of the road trip.

Your photos are fantastic!
Road trips are pretty much amazing…wherever you end up!
I can’t wait to read about all of your American adventures!
Thanks Sarah. I’m really looking forward to it. This is going to be the longest drive i’ve ever had!
I love the photo at the top of this post. I feel like it really captures that feeling of the tired, yet excited traveler, waiting with anticipation.
Exactly. It was one of the moment when I was waiting for 6 hours to get on the plain. 6 hours of layover before 12 hours of flight. Not so pretty 🙂
ROAD TRIP! Awesome idea Juno.
Thanks! Where are you about?
Yay! Vermont made the list!
Yeah! Looking forward to do some hiking in Vermont!
USA Road trips are awesome! I’ve done 15 in the last 9 years! Looking forward to your adventures.
I think you will be amazed at the American West- it’s so huge and the skies go on forever.
AMAZING! have a wonderful time 🙂
As someone who lived in Korea for a year, it’s really amazing to see and read about the USA from the perspective of a Korean! I really love your blog and look forward to updates from this trip.
By the way – if you’re going to be back in the DC/Virginia area after August 19th, please let me know. I live in Alexandria, just across the river from DC, and would love to give you a place to stay. I miss being able to speak with Koreans, and would love to show you around.
