Photo Friday: The Colours Of Utah

It's been a while since I've done a photo post - but Utah is so full of photogenic spots that this one was always on the cards. Plus there are plenty of places we saw or passed that haven't made it into other blog posts. Utah is one of my favourite US states. Sometimes I… Continue reading Photo Friday: The Colours Of Utah

That Time We Were Trapped In Monument Valley

Monument Valley has always been one of my absolute favourite destinations in the US. When I was younger, I became enthralled by it when I saw a photo of it on a calendar in my best friend's parents' house (long before it became a default feature in Windows photo folders) and my brain whirred into… Continue reading That Time We Were Trapped In Monument Valley

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. We were camping a few miles south of the Grand Canyon, our next stop on the Great American Road Trip, and the place was deserted save for a couple of parked up campervans. "Hey guys,… Continue reading Hikes, Sunsets and a Crazy Camping Adventure at the Grand Canyon

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. Page was another repeat visit for me, but last time I was there, we took a walk to the now Instagram-famous Horseshoe Bend and took a quick dip in Lake… Continue reading Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend: The Gems of Page, Arizona

Hiking Angel’s Landing In Zion National Park

Just over ten years ago, I made my first visit to Zion National Park and managed to miss out on the famed Angel's Landing hike. We had a few options for hiking, and after hearing that one of them would be a four hour hike with lots of terrifying drops and chains, my friend and… Continue reading Hiking Angel’s Landing In Zion National Park

2018: My Year In Review

I can never really decide if I want to do a year in review post until it gets to Christmas and I suddenly realise the year's almost over and start looking back at what I've done, what's happened and thinking about what's going to happen. 2018 has been a really strange year for me. I… Continue reading 2018: My Year In Review

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

Finding The Weird, Wonderful & Awesome: Driving From LA To Las Vegas

I must admit I had never thought of the drive from Los Angeles to Las Vegas as particularly exciting, given that the entire drive is through desert. That's until I did a little research. On my TrekAmerica trip 10 years ago, we had driven the other way from Vegas to LA, and literally the only… Continue reading Finding The Weird, Wonderful & Awesome: Driving From LA To Las Vegas

We Wish We Had More Time In San Diego

Of all the places that took us by surprise on our road trip, I think San Diego comes out on top. It wasn't even on our initial itinerary. I was pretty sure we weren't going to have time, especially when I found out that Yellowstone National Park closes on November 5th and we'd have to… Continue reading We Wish We Had More Time In San Diego

A Fleeting Visit To Los Angeles

It's no secret that I'm not a fan of LA. After my brief stop there ten years ago, I always said I wasn't bothered about ever going back. But it felt kind of unavoidable on a road trip that was leading us down the coast of the USA, and in some ways I did want… Continue reading A Fleeting Visit To Los Angeles
