About the excursion, USA Trip 2011

Visit to the United States of America, has become a traditional project of two faculties, Faculty of electrical engineering and Faculty of computer science, both from University of Ljubljana.

Our excursion will last for 5 weeks, starting in March. Main cities on our way will be : Los Angeles, San Francisco, famous American parks, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Phoenix and Miami. Students which attented the excursion in the past few years had a similar path of travel, which seems to be the most economical and interesting. We'll travel to the USA by plane and there we will travel around in a van. We'll be sleeping in hostels and motels.
