The landscape here remind me of the roadrunner cartoons.
Just passing by Albuquerque…
Another state, another time zone.
400 miles on the same road! ;)
He wasn't afraid of us.
Sunrise at the south rim of the Grand Canyon
Catching up with the meeting. Tomorrow: Grand Canyon!
The thing needs a lot of Juice. Been averaging 26mpg, so not that bad.
Goodbye Vegas. Interesting place, and I'm glad we came, but not worth a second visit in my opinion.
We did wait around for the Bellagio Fountains but apparently they don't put them on when it's windy. Oh well!
Vegas is basically a city built in the middle of a desert. Can't really expand anymore as it's reaching the mountains on all sides.
Difficult to explain how big these buildings are. And everything is lavishly decorated.
Venice in the middle of Vegas
You can tell these guys are making a good amount of dough by the grandeur of these buildings.
Very hungry indeed. Need to be, for a double chicken breasted thing on a stack of pancakes filled with bacon and smothered in maple syrup. :)
Many miles later...Las Vegas! Going for a well deserved shower and then off to see the sights.
One last one :)
Alex is loving it.
Badwater road. Lots of salty lakes.
Did I mention it was HOT! Check this out!
This place is incredible. No picture would do it justice. Worth the journey. Absolutely!
This is it. No petrol, no food and water for any many miles.
It's very hot out there. We're heading towards Death Valley. Not many cars around.
Setting off towards Vegas…
Typical American dinner. If you've never been to the states, just remember that tipping is a big thing over here. 18% seems to be the minimum expected.
Got to keep the spiritual food going…
Really, no pictures make it justice.
Queued up for 3 hours or so. But it's difficult to think of a better place to be in traffic :)
A must see if you're even in California with the means of traveling freely.
Yosemite National Park
What an amazing pizza this was. Probably more meat than dough. Shared it with Alex and there's still loads left. It was gooooood!
Goodbye San Francisco. Go warriors! Yosemite, here we come.
New style Apple Store with trees inside. We didn't have time to visit headquarters, so a visit to the union square store was the best we could do.
China town! We met loads of brothers today. If you look really hard, you'll spot them.
It's a beautiful city SF. In my top 3 of USA towns. (Not that that means much) Full of character. The house's architecture is really pretty.
The famous Lombard street. They must have done it thinking of The tourists surely.
Seafood for lunch. Even Alex enjoyed it.
I didn't know this, but the only reason they closed Alcatraz was because the thing was incredibly expensive to run.
On our way to the old prison... Nice views.
Morning folks. On our way to San Francisco
That's our little car down there!
Alex is in paradise!
California coast. Very pretty
Mexican Burrito for lunch. It's very hot around these parts!
Back on the road. Hopefully, get close to San Francisco tonight.
Sunset at Santa Monica, starting our drive up to San Francisco.
Rodeo Drive, where all the cheap-skate people go shopping. NOT!
Really nice place, full of caracter. Everyone enjoyed their meal.
Alex takes his drone out for the first time.
Recognise this set?
Start the day with a tour around Warner Brothers studios
Windy in the back there Carla?
Everyone is still getting ready…I'm enjoying the sun! Off to warner brothers tour in a bit
Hollywood boulevard. Quite chavy at night it turns out. Still interesting. We're quite tired after an 8 hour time zone shift, so, off to bed.
Picked up the vehicle. Just enough leg room and boot space. :)
Well, many many hours later…
Well, 12 hours and counting! Ps: let's hope the other side is a little brighter.
Bags are in. Slightly over the limit, but they didn't care. Slightly worrying for the return journey.
Should be the last leg of the journey before the plane.
Rush hour in London
Let's it's a little better on the other widely the pond.
After waiting on the cafe for 50 minutes, we managed to lose track of time and had to rush to get in the train.
Saying the final goodbyes.
Barbie is taking us to the airport. The journey begins. Ps: Barbie is the most anxious of all of us and she's not even going.
