    A drive through the Death Valley!

    September 8 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    A long road trip to Mammoth Lakes via the infamous Death Valley.
    It was hot but not unbearable. About the same as Las Vegas. A worthwhile trip and we have some great memories.
    The lowest point was 190 feet below sea level and had the same temperature of 43 degrees Celsius as Las Vegas.
    To get to Mammoth Lakes we had to drive to a height of 7895 feet and saw the temperature drop to 10 degrees Celsius.
    Some awesome views along the way.

  • Day20

    Walk the strip and then KEITH URBAN

    September 7 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 35 °C

    A long walk exploring just about all the major casinos - apart from some innovative architecture and design they all feel the same - poker machines were everywhere and the smell of cigarettes was hard to miss!
    Tonight was our last night and we had a truly wonderful experience - Keith Urban at the Colosseum was sensational. A must see if you get the chance.Read more

  • Day19

    A very quiet day then ELTON JOHN

    September 6 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 38 °C

    Enjoyed the Flamingo hotel with the occasional walk outside. This was our day of rest!
    Waited all day for the Elton John concert which was fantastic. He was on stage for two and a half hours.

  • Day18

    Day in Vegas, Cirque du Soleil at night

    September 5 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 37 °C

    A late start today - well after 12:00 p.m. before we ventured out to face the heat.
    Conquered Denis' fear of heights (well nearly) when we had a memorable ride on the High Roller Ferris Wheel. Great views!
    More time spent walking the strip and just experiencing this amazing fantasy town.
    The images of the Cirque du Soleil Beatles Show do not do it justice. It was incredible.Read more

  • Day17

    A quick look at Las Vegas

    September 4 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 35 °C

    We've reached Las Vegas after a very interesting drive. Driving is the way to see America.
    Rested up for a couple of hours and then spent three hours exploring Vegas.
    We covered one block!

  • Day17

    Route 66 and then the Hoover Dam

    September 4 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    A full day spent travelling from Flagstaff to Las Vegas following the iconic Route 66 much of the way.
    First stop Williams, an old country town with lots of interesting memorabilia from the 60's.
    Then Seligman - the "home" of Route 66. Lots of 60's stuff too and also a great lunch.
    Our final stop was the Hoover Dam and it too was an enjoyable and interesting experience, but hot - 110 in the old money!
    We finally arrived in Las Vegas ready for four exciting days. No rest!

  • Day16

    The Grand Canyon (at last)

    September 3 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 30 °C

    It took a little longer to get there than planned but the Grand Canyon was worth the trouble.
    The day started with a wonderful helicopter flight over the Canyon. One more off the bucket list!
    The pictures tell their own story - it really is an amazing sight. - a true natural wonder of the world. The Grand Canyon has an average depth of 1600 meters (or about one mile).

    A great day filled with great memories!

  • Day15

    The lost day

    September 2 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    Our plane to Las Vegas and the start of our Grand Canyon tour was delayed by 14 hours!
    Something about it being too hot in Las Vegas for the plane to leave (unbelievable story if you ask me).
    We booked a hotel for the night, flew out of. Anchorage 1 :00 the next day, collected our rental car and drove 4 hours to Flagstaff Arizona. In bed around 2:00 a.m.
    A helicopter ride to look forward to in the morning.

    Anchorage - an exploration day

    September 1 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    A day to explore Anchorage, the largest city in Alaska.
    Started with a 1 hour tour on the usual "red bus" which was quite interesting. I didn't know Captain Cook "discovered" Alaska while searching for the North West Passage.
    Next a shuttle to the Ulu factory on Ship Creek. Ulu is a special type of curved knife made only here in Anchorage.
    Then we visited the Anchorage Museum. A lovely building and it contains quite a few interesting exhibits.

  • Day13

    Whittier then on to Anchorage

    August 31 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C

    We left the cruise and had another boat trip - this time on a small cruiser to see Lake Portage and the Portage Glacier up close. Quite spectacular!
    On the drive from Whittier to Anchorage we travelled in the longest tunnel in North America - 2.5 miles long.
    Eventually our bus reached Anchorage - much bigger than we had expected - a city of 300,000 that is presented very well with lots of flowers and some pretty parks.Read more
