Day 371 - 10 Hours in Bergen

After a nice flight with Norwegian Airlines, I arrived in Bergen early in the morning.

The first thing you will notice when approaching Bergen is the landscape which looks great. Since I had 10 hours to spare till my onward flight to Edinburgh, I took the bus into town.

Day 369 - NYC Downtown Architecture

After posting a lot of people photos the past days I thought a small change would be good for today's post.

Day 368 - Just NY People

One of my favorite places in Manhattan is the High Line, a great park and great use of the old elevated rail tracks, more cities should do this and use the old industrial remnants like this.

Day 367 - Different Sides of New York

You never know what you come across when you walk around in New York, even snow in August. In order to come across something new, I decided to go to Brighton Beach and Coney Island today.

Day 363 - A Day in DC

After taking the train in the morning, I arrived in Washington DC where I could spend the day. I booked the overnight train to Boston since it allowed me to save on a night in a hotel and would also get me there earlier.

Day 362 - People in Philly

After sorting my train ticket for Boston, I headed to Old City Coffee to meet well known local street photographer Michael Penn for coffee at his local hangout.

Day 361 - The Way to Philly

I woke up to a foggy landscape but it made for some interesting views. The train was as suspected still running late but managed to make up a bit of time and thanks to the more developed network here it was only 1h late now instead of 2h.

It was another early start to catch the 7:00 train to Philadelphia, it was also another long journey since the train will only arrive in Philadelphia tomorrow around noon.

Day 358 - The City of New Orleans

My train left quite early in the morning from Memphis to New Orleans but it was on time and meant it would get into New Orleans by 15:30.

Day 357 - Memphis

After a night of freezing in the Amtrak refrigerator car from Chicago, I finally made it to Memphis just after sunrise and it was good to be out of the train.

Day 356 - Chicago

When you look at some of my photos from the past weeks, it looks like I spent it all at the beach. Well, Chicago has it's own beaches and you are forgiven to think you are by the sea given how big the lake really is.

Day 355 - 106 Miles to Chicago

Ok, the title of the post is a quote from Blues Brothers and I am sure it was a bit more than 106 miles to Chicago when I woke up in the train this morning.

Day 354 - People in Denver

Since I had an extra day in Denver and I already managed to see the main sights on my first visit and also yesterday, I used the day to focus on the people around downtown.

Tuesday, 12 August 2014

Day 353 - Denver

The first thing to do after having breakfast was going to Union Station and check for my train ticket to Chicago and see when they had one available.

Monday, 11 August 2014

Day 352 - Salt Lake City to Denver

I had to get up early to catch the train but since I had a hunch that it would be running late, I could sleep in a bit longer than expected.

Sunday, 10 August 2014

Day 351 - Salt Lake City

After a pretty comfortable night in the train I arrived in Salt Lake City, 3 hours delayed but happy because it meant instead of arriving at around 3 in the morning, it was now 6:30 so a much better time.

Day 350 - The California Zephyr to Salt Lake City

Today, marked the start of my final leg of the round the world trip and it's a journey across the US by train.
I will be taking the Amtrak trains from the west coast to the east coast and stopping off in some bigger cities on the way.

Day 349 - Berkeley

After arriving in Oakland this morning, I figured, I head to Berkeley and look for accommodation first before heading to San Francisco.

Day 348 - An Extra Day in Honolulu

Since I didn't plan on being here another day, I thought I take it easy and just chill, walk around a bit without doing much.

Wednesday, 6 August 2014

Day 347 - Pearl Harbor

My 'last' day in Honolulu was spent taking some more photos on the beach but I'll save you from that in this post. Instead it's about my rip to the Pearl Harbor museum.

Day 346 - Honolulu Beaches

After spending time around downtown yesterday, it was about the beaches today. I also thought of ging to the op of Diamond Head but was too lazy in the end.

Day 345 - The Longest Day Part 2: Honolulu

Here I was, around 28h after I left Busan at Honolulu airport and it was still Monday the 4th August and not even midday.

Day 345 - The Longest Day Part 1: Busan to Seoul to Osaka

When I woke up this morning, I knew it would be a long day. I had to go to Busan station, take the KTX train to Seoul, the plane from there to Osaka and from there to Honolulu just before midnight.

Day 344 - Haeundae and Gijiang

My last full day in Busan started with a lot of clouds, wind and some rain but it was not surprising after the typhoon yesterday.

Day 342 - Surfing and Evening Stroll

Although I had planned to go for an overnight trip to Jinju today, I decided to go surfing with my friend here since it would be the last opportunity before leaving Busan on Monday.
