How to Apply for your ESTA Visa
*Collaborative paid post*
It may not seem like it now, with restricted travel, but there will be a time in the not too distant future when you’ll be planning an overseas holiday. I’ve just applied for an ESTA so I can visit the USA, and I found the complete ESTA application procedure extremely easy.
I’m sharing some ideas for an exciting American Road Trip with you today, which is something I did many years ago when I lived in the States. I made a road trip from Pennsylvania where I was living at the time, right down to Florida, in an old beat-up Ford Mustang!
The trip took me four days, and saw me travelling through Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. Nights were spent in motels and small hotels, and as I drove down the East coast down towards the Southern states, the landscape, accents and food changed every fifty miles or so.
A road trip is such an exciting and exhilarating way to seeing large parts of the States. You can see so much more, and also you can stop whenever you feel like it. Plus, it’s a hugely exciting and fascinating snapshot into every day life in the States.
My destination was Florida, where a good friend had invited me to stay for the summer. I am now planning to do the same trip again, starting from New York, where I will fly into from London. I’ve already applied for my ESTA visa, which lasts for 2 years, and is valid for multiple trips.
Whilst I’m working from home at the moment, I am planning my trip and it’s an exciting prospect to be retracing my steps from all those years ago! One of the things I am most looking forward to, as a foodie, is eating breakfast and dinner in the Diners along the way, with this “everlasting” coffee refills and juicy burgers.
I’m planning to stay for three weeks, with the drive down and back taking four to five days, each way. And, I will be staying overnight in simple motels and roadside hotels. Meals will be mainly taken in independent diners, as I mentioned above, where I can indulge in my favourite American meal, “Biscuits and Gravy”.
Now is a great time to plan for a future Road Trip to the USA, as well as applying for an ESTA. I applied for my ESTA here: Apply for an American ESTA. I hope you have enjoyed reading about my future travel plans, and please do let me know if you need any more travel tips to the USA, as well as for more information about health and travel requirements.
