After spending several days in Las Vegas, it was time to hit the road again. We were looking forward to, after passing through Death Valley, leaving behind the extreme heat and enjoying the relative coolness of Yosemite and the California coast. It’s a long ride to San Francisco with a lot to see along the way, but we planned for several overnight stays, as well as spending a couple of days with family.
With the rental car troubles and probably least interesting part of the route behind us, we were fully ready to enjoy the over the top and extravagant city in the middle of the desert that is Las Vegas. Our stay here was a bit longer than at some of the other big cities, because we had a little side trip planned on the second day.
Even though we had our car for a couple of days already, this is where the actual road trip began. The obvious route between Los Angeles and Las Vegas is not the most captivating, but we tried our best to make the drive as enjoyable as possible.
After months of planning and anticipation, we were finally headed to California on July 19, 2018, for a three week road trip between Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco and San Diego.
Last year’s summer vacation was a big trip. Three weeks on the west coast of the United States, road tripping between major cities in a convertible. Even though we usually don’t want to plan everything we are going to do each day (and leave it up to what we feel like doing at the time), we did do quite a lot of preparation before going on this trip.
We are currently thoroughly enjoying our vacation on the west coast of the United States and many blog posts about it will certainly follow. But before I find the time to prepare all of that, I wanted to share with you a neat little pre-vacation fun thing I did last year before our summer vacation to Bali and decided to do again this year.
