In 2015 I went to America for the first time. I didn't want to go; the US had never appealed to me. I couldn't imagine it having any type of culture. I didn't like burgers or hot dogs. Then there was the whole guns thing. Honestly, the thought of going there scared me a little bit. But my boyfriend had wanted to drive Route 66 since he learned to drive and eventually I was swayed by his enthusiasm.
