United States of America

The US of A - a dream to visit inspired from Westerns watched as a child ... and Arizona does not disappoint! The romance of eloping to Hawaii! Hiking...stunning vistas ... the BIg Apple ... the warm welcome reception across all States - God Bless America!

THREE things we did not know about the USA:

  1. The United States is known for being super-sized, and it also has the longest land border in the world. Stretching for over 8850 kilometres, the US shares the border with its northern neighbour Canada.
  2. Americans love their pizza – so much so, that they collectively eat 100 acres of pizza every day. That’s around 300 billion pizzas a year. The most popular time to order pizza is around the Super Bowl. 
  3. The 50-star flag was designed as a high school project by 17-year old Robert Heff. It was 1958, and there were only 48 states at the time but Heft had a hunch Hawaii and Alaska would soon be granted statehood. His teacher gave him a B- but went on to update the grade to an A after Heft submitted his design to the White House, eventually leading to a call from President Eisenhower that it had been selected as the official U.S. flag!
