小编摘要:还有什么其它方式比把所有的计划及旅游决定留给美国人自己去做更好呢?自己决定去哪儿,就这么定了~~

When Andy Malone, 30, and Rebecca Grixti landed in New York on June 22nd, they had no itinerary planned for their trip across America. “We want to do what the Americans do on normal days and normal weekends,” said Malone, who is from Dublin, Ireland.

6月22日,当30岁的安迪·马龙和丽贝卡·格里斯蒂到达纽约时,他们压根儿没有为横跨美国的旅程计划好路线。“我们想做美国人在平时及普通周末时所做的事情,”来自爱尔兰都柏林的马龙说。

And what better way to do that than to leave all of the planning and travel decisions to the American people? “We're putting the faith of our trip in other peoples' hands, and it's worked out amazingly so far,” Malone said. Malone and Grixti, who are friends and work as travel consultants, came up with the concept that's guiding them from their starting point in New York to their final destination in Nevada at the end of August. “Ten weeks, two people, one direction: You Decide Where,” said Grixti, of Melbourne, Australia.

还有什么其他方式比把所有的计划及旅游决定留给美国人自己去做更好呢?“我们把旅行的决定权交到其他人手里,到目前为止,效果非常不错,”马龙说。既是朋友,又同为旅游顾问的马龙和格里斯蒂一起想到了这个主意。就是这个主意指引他们以纽约作为出发点,然后于8月底到达位于内华达州的最终目的地。“十个星期,两个人,一个方向:‘你来决定去哪里’,”来自澳大利亚墨尔本的格里斯蒂说道。

You Decide Where, www.youdecidewhere.com, is a social networking experiment Malone and Grixti set up before coming to the United States using websites such as CouchSurfing.org, Facebook and Google Buzz. The sites, allow followers to suggest and/or invite the pair to U.S. cities and towns. People often offer free places to crash or advice on where to go, what to eat and what to do. “It's different than planning your hostels and planning where you're going to go—it's just a complete adventure, and we've met some brilliant people doing it,” Malone said.

“你决定去哪里”(www.youdecidewhere.com)是马龙和格里斯蒂在来美国之前,利用诸如CouchSurfing.org, 脸谱网以及Google Buzz这些网站建立起来的一个试验性社交网络。这些网站,允许关注者建议以及/或者邀请这对同伴到美国的一些市镇去旅游。人们通常会提供免费住宿的地方或者提供有关去哪里,吃什么,做什么的建议。“这跟那种一早计划好住宿以及去哪里的经历很不同——这完全就是一次冒险,我们遇到了很多很不错的人也在这么做,”马龙说。
