Down Highway 1: Completing our journey through the U.S.

Down Highway 1: Completing our journey through the U.S.

  Our trip through America is drawing to a close, after traveling 3.600 miles with Greyhound and another close to 2.000 miles in a car around California. I can’t really believe it, it doesn’t feel like almost two months. Monday evening we’re off to Fiji. It’s been a great time, and there is no better way to finish this journey than with a road trip down Highway 1 back to Los Angeles. We started in San Francisco on Friday, unfortunately a…

San Francisco

San Francisco

  Had a few nice days. But also quite exhausting, walking in the city is equally demanding like hiking in Yosemite…   Sea lions’ conversations: No. 1: “I told you, we should have gone to Ibiza…” No. 2: “Why don’t you book next years’ vacation then, you know-it-all?!?” No 3: “Could you two keep it down? I’m trying to sleep here!” No 4: “Excuse me, sorry, could you just let me pass, oh, I’m sorry, excuse me…” No. 5, 6,…

Yosemite Park. No further comments this time, just a view pictures. (Yes, there were squirrels; again didn’t encounter any bears. Nor mountain lions, that usually live around there as well).

  Since we couldn’t enter Yosemite from it’s north-eastern side and had to go all the way back south, we decided spontaneously to stop for a day at Sequoia National Park. It’s best known for the Giant Forest, where you can wander around the impressive, grand Sequoia trees. Among them “General Sherman”, the biggest tree on earth. In Giant Forest we hiked around the big trees, that were perfect for treehugging. We had two seasons, summer and winter, in one day. We didn’t encounter…

Death Valley and Eastern Sierra

Death Valley and Eastern Sierra

  We wanted sun and heat  – so where else to go but the hottest place on earth? It was over 30° Celsius in Death Valley, but felt a lot hotter. And this was still winter – in summer it gets easily over 40° Celsius. The highest temperature recorded was 56.7° Celsius. This is definitely one of the places on this planet, where nature is still undisputedly the boss… The ride to Death Valley itself is also quite an attraction. The night before our…

Escape to L.A.

Escape to L.A.

  We’re back in business – we did what everyone does in Los Angeles, worked on our acting careers. Quite successfully as you can see here:     We started Downtown just walking around with no proper agenda, it didn’t take long for someone to come up to us and recommend going to the top of the City Hall Building, all the way to the 27th floor where we had a great view of the City, Hollywood Hills, Skyscrapers, the surroundings, and…
