Hello USA.

This summer my parents in law invited my partner and me to go with them on a holiday road trip to California, USA!!

We had an incredible three-week road trip through the states California/ Nevada/ Arizona:
1. Los Angeles;
2. San Francisco / San Jose;
3. Yosemite National Park;
4. Lake Isabella / Sequoia trees National Park;
5. Death Valley National Park;
6. Las Vegas;
7. Grand Canyon National Park;
8. Antelope Canyon National Park;
9. Horseshoe Bend National Park;
10. Joshua Tree National Park;
11. Back to Los Angeles.


*Note: I am still working on all the vlogs. But in total we filmed around 6 hours of footage, so I cutting it in multiple parts.

We went with six people and a lot of bagage, so we needed a big car for the road trip!

The first and last days we were in Los Angeles (LA). We went to Hollywood, Beverly Hills, LA Zoo and much, much more!

After LA we went to San Jose and San Francisco. In San Jose there was an haunted house that Jeen and I wanted to see: The Winchester mansion! The entree ticket was a bit too much, so we only visited the gardens. Apparently, they made a horror movie about the haunted story!! How super awesome is that?!?! ๐Ÿ˜€
After the haunted house, we went into the city center of San Jose. And I absolutely love it! It looked soooo cute. They even had a salsa bar in the middle of the main street!!

In the morning before we went to San Francisco, we ordered a coffee and a good breakfast at Denny’s! Damn… We were stuffed after that O_O

After San Jose, it was time for the big epic city of San Francisco! It was still more than an hour drive from our motel in San Jose to San Francisco. We parked at the pier and went straight to the famous trams of SF. We ended our first day in San Francisco at the pier.

The next day we went to the famous Golden Gate Bridge!

It was a very cloudy day. After the Golden Gate Bridge we went to the Golden Gate Park. Of the name you’d think these two are closely located, but we guessed WRONG. haha XD In the Golden Gate Park, there was a lovely museum: California Academy of Sciences. Would really recommend you to go!

The next day we went to the next Airbnb near Bass Lake. We wanted to go to our first National Park: Yosemite.

We did a (apparently difficult) hike to a beautiful waterfall: the Yosemite Falls Trail.

The next National Park was a few day’s later near Lake Isabella: The Sequoia trees, National Park.

This was a huge Sequoia tree!!! Btw, this is Sil, Jeen’s big brother. ๐Ÿ˜›
Near Lake Isabella

The next stop was through Death Valley, National Park… And as you can see on the STOP sign, it was HOT over there! Around 117 degrees Fahrenheit = 47,2 degrees Celsius… We went to the Salt Creek, National Park. The temperature was so high, that I almost fainted.. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But I’m glad I did it anyway ๐Ÿ˜€

LAS VEGAS!!!

One of my favorite places of our trip was Las Vegas! We stayed 3 nights at the Strip in Las Vegas. It was a magical place, where no one sleeps at night! We drank cocktails, played at the casino’s and win a bit cash to drink some more cocktails. ๐Ÿ˜› Yep, those were good nights!

I found the bake shop of Cake Boss!! โค We tried the carrot cake and IT WAS AMAZING!!!

I was scouted to get soms free VIP tickets for Omnia ^^ At that party we met an amazing guy: Nelson! After Omnia we wanted a change of scenery. So we went to a Irish pub instead. XD
The next stop was the Grand Canyon, National Park.

Antelope Canyon, National Park. This was really epic and super hot XD

This is one of my favorite photo’s! At the Horseshoe Bend, National Park.
Just chilling ๐Ÿ˜›
@ Joshua Tree, National Park

After the last National Park, we went back to LA.

To end our amazing road trip in Amerika, we went to the LA Observatory!


I didn’t bought it, even though I would love to.. ๐Ÿ˜› It wouldn’t even fit in my luggage ๐Ÿ˜›

Thank you for reading my blogs, and hopefully see you next time!

Much loves,

Gwendolyn
