Hikes, Sunsets and a Crazy Camping Adventure at the Grand Canyon

It was pitch black, and we were cooking sausages on a broken barbeque and failing absolutely miserably when it happened.

Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend: The Gems of Page, Arizona

We were in no rush to leave Zion, which meant we could meander slowly towards Page, in our sixth state of the road trip, Arizona.

Hotels, Slot Machines & Buffets: It Can Only Be Vegas

We arrived in Las Vegas in the dark. Which means all we could see were bright lights and huge hotels and flashing casinos, and you could almost forget that it was dark - but you definitely couldn't forget that you're in Vegas. Hotels are, of course, a quintessential part of any trip to Vegas, although… Continue reading Hotels, Slot Machines & Buffets: It Can Only Be Vegas
