So far we have driven from San Francisco via Nappa Valley, past hundreds of miles of endless beautifully geometrically arranged fruit plantations to California’s famous National Parks, on to Las Vegas and then past the Hoover Dam to the Grand Canyon (see Jasper's earli...

The Grand Canyon…state of Arizona, USA; stunning views, amazing sunsets, different shades of red and yellow everywhere you look,  Junior park ranger scheme (my fav 😛) etc. 

The Grand Canyon is very well known everywhere around the world - people say it's...

After a lovely piece of pastry at a grungy place called Cup a Joe's we headed to the car rental to collect our car. When we got there we were expecting a small SUV and were rather surprised we had been given a monster of an SUV with eight seats, the size of a mini-bus!...

This post is all about Alcatraz, the prison on an island near San Francisco. People called it the 'impossible to escape' prison for the island is approx a mile from San Francisco and that mile is sea water and is harder to swim than you think... it's very very cold and...

Today we started off by eating at a 1950's style diner, a nice ambience but pretty average food... Next we went to Chinatown (on our way to Alcatraz). We just looked about and bought a little souvenir (for the memories) and then slowly made our way to the ferry to Alca...
