I lived for 8 months in California and studied abroad at the California State University in Long Beach. Right after my semester, I drove my 1998 Jeep Cherokee alone from Los Angeles up to Portland, Oregon. For two months I stayed with cool people and strangers i found on Couchsurfing.org. I was surrounded by amazing landscapes, movie-like stereotypes and weird situations. This is my photographic journal and shows my perspective on the „American Dream“.
