From endless stretches of golden beaches to an adult playground in the middle of the desert, once you've experienced all the West Coast of America has to offer, it's hard not to see why the west is commonly known as the best!
My name is Bec Jenkins, and I have just returned from the USA, where I travelled on a Western Highlights trip with Contiki, as their first official Travel Project ambassador (to see how you can become one too, read to the bottom). Don't agree with me that west is best? Maybe I can convince you...
Beaches for days
Deserts, also for days
The Grand-est of Sunset views (& that big crack in the ground)
If you had’ve told me 3 months ago that I’d be watching the sun set on the edge of the Grand Canyon, I would most definitely have LOL’d (is that still a ‘thing’?).. But, here I am, thanks to my passion for writing and #ContikiSixTwo #TheTravelProject – you too could be watching the sun set over the Grand Canyon, or galavanting around Europe, or wherever you want really; check out @Contiki six-two, the travel project (link in my bio) where you can submit content to be featured on #TheTravelProject and you might just find yourself watching magical sunsets from magical places with magical people 😍🇺🇸🌎 #Contiki #ContikiChristy #TheTravelProject #WesternHighlights #WildWestern #LAToTheBay #GrandCanyon #BucketList
Ain't no mountain high enough, ain't no valley low enough - except Yosemite!
What happens in Vegas... (Is a whole lot of fun!)
Become a Travel Project ambassador yourself
I got the chance to travel to the USA, simply because I shared a story about how travel changed me, with six-two. Their community contributor program is open to anyone – writers, photographers, film makers, dreamers – who has a travel story to tell, and wants to share it with the world. I was selected to become a Travel Project ambassador because of the way my article resonated with readers both here on six-two, and on Contiki’s Facebook page, and if you share a story, you too could win a trip with Contiki to a destination you’ve always dreamed of.
