About the Post

Author Information

My name is Scott and I like to travel. There I said it, wow that does feel better. There is probably a program for my affliction somewhere. I am what I would consider a Normal Guy. I am a native Arizonan, sometimes we are called “Zonies”. I am in my mid 40′s and enjoy a great life. I am self employed and have a wonderful daughter and Partner. Although I would say my life is a fairly normal one, I am also quite lucky in that I have the ability to travel and enjoy the world, I enjoy learning about other cultures and experiencing the world around us. I want to be right upfront about the type of travel I enjoy and the type I don’t. You will probably not ever read a story of about me backpacking my way through the serengeti during the height of summer, nor will you probably read any stories of me sleeping in the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton in Paris. I am not a budget traveler, nor am I an uber luxury traveler, I fall somewhere in the middle, where most people fall I believe. I started this blog for the sole purpose of sharing my stories, my views and my excitement for traveling around this world with my friends, family. However it doesn’t stop there for me, I also wanted to make friends with others around the world, those who travel and those who dream of travel. Blogs and Websites evolve over time, mine will no doubt expand over time as well please come back and see what has taken place. However if you have come to my blog to schedule a flight or a hotel, this is not the place.

U.S. + Europe = Usropean Travel

Usropean travel, what in the world is that?

I know what your saying, Usropean; [Uz-rope-e-an] isn’t a real word.  Not yet, it isn’t.  With your help we are going to make Usropean as common and ubiquitous as words like milk and coke or travel.  Of course your going to have to share this post with all the people you know if that is going to happen, so get with it now.

While your working on your plan of attack to share this,  I will explain what Usropean travel is.

I am blessed, I know it.  I have met people all my life who say to me, “Your so lucky to be able to travel so much”, or “I wish I could travel as much as you”, or “All those beautiful European cities are awesome, I wish I could go to them”.  Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my travels, but extensive travel is not all that exciting, at least not during the travel portion of  the trip, but once you get there; thats a different story.  By reading my blog you may get the impression I travel outside of the U.S. most of the time, but that is not true.  The majority of my travels are located right here in the U.S.

Like I said, I am a lucky guy, I know it.  Not everyone is in a position to experience world wide travel, I get that.   But what about those people who tell me how great it would be to travel to European Cities.  I was thinking, why don’t they?  Why not create your own European trip right here in the United States?

How would you do that you ask?  Did you know that there are dozens of cities in the United States that are sister cities to European Cities?  So if you want to go to London, there is a London in Arkansas, California, Kentucky, Minnesota, Ohio, Texas and West Virginia.  Or maybe you would prefer Moscow, well good news, we have a Moscow in Idaho and Tennessee.  How about Venice, Florida; Madrid, Missouri or perhaps you might like Berlin North Dakota.

Amsterdam Netherlands or Amsterdam, Missouri?

I know what your thinking, how silly.  But is it really.  What a memorable trip you can plan by visiting places in the U.S. While creating a destination list that looks like a European destinations list.  In fact in Arkansas alone you can visit London, Paris, Stutgart, Hamburg, Dover, Exeter and Plymouth.  That is 3 different countries all in the same state.  Georgia is loaded with places like Athens, Bristol, Lyon’s, Oxford, Rome, Vienna and so many more, 8 countries are represented in Georgia alone.

So what are these cities like you ask, let’s look at a few pictures of both cities.

Paris, France

Paris, Arkansas

Moscow, Idaho

Moscow, Russia

Venice, Florida

Venice, Italy

It’s true that Venice, Italy is most likely not exactly the same as Venice, Florida.  However it is quite interesting how much they have in common Canals, Boats, Water and Pasta.  So when your planning your next vacation don’t be afraid to plan Usropean destinations.

Let’s start the trend of Usropean travel.  It starts with you!

Happy Travels
