In July 2018 I went to Minnesota and Nebraska. Not the most known US states, but still very interesting. The reason for the visit in these states were to meet and visit members of my family, which migrated to the US in 1860's. It was a really a special visit and I learned a lot. Both about the family, but also about the American culture, nature and lifestyle.
Among the places visited were a small harbor village in the very north of Minnesota; Grand Marais, with huge forests as the nearest neighbor. A place I really want to visit again if I ever get there again.
