WEST-USA TRIP REPORT

In March/April 1998 we traveled through a few states of West USA.
After visiting Florida in 1997 we really wanted to see more of the United States.
We choose to fly United Airlines because of their new plane, the Boeing 777 (with little TV-screens in every seat).
But first we thought of what things we wanted to see. That did result in the route you see below. 

California, Arizona, Utah, Nevada

(if you click on the day-number you go directly to that day of the tripreport!!!)

We had to decide if we wanted to book the car and hotels in Holland or in the States.
Therefore we searched for prices of car rentals like Alamo, Hertz and Budget. Alamo had the best offer. After that we looked up the prices on Internet. It seemed that if you book online in the States it is more expensive than booking in Holland. So we decided to book the car and hotels in Holland.
