About Daniella Cortese
Favorite Aspect: Getting to sleep in a different town/different scenery every night. I thought this might bother me before the trip but I absolutely loved it. It was impossible to get bored. Getting to visit those small towns that I thought only existed in the movies was truly an experience of a life time!
Most Challenging Aspect: For me this was the cold and my sore butt! It definitely got colder than I was prepared for, I ended up buying warmer clothes along the way. Depending on your route pack warm socks, gloves, pants, etc. I bought bike shorts on sale before the trip, not the best brand and it made all the difference in the world, I could barely sit I was so sore. By the time we got to Colorado I bought a much thicker pair and it saved me!
Advice: Enjoy every moment of it and take it one day at a time or else it might seem impossible. Best advice I can think of is to just have no expectations. For me, not really knowing what to expect made every minute perfect exactly as it was.
