    Las Vegas - Lake Tahoe

    January 15 in the United States

    What a big day! We left Vegas early this morning and have been driving all day towards Lake Tahoe, it was a good day to catch up on some rest from our big couple of days.
    Last night we went on a massive Ferris wheel called the high roller in Las Vegas it was awesome, each big cart carries 20 odd people and there is a bar in the centre. It was amazing to see the city at night from the cart the views were just unreal. We then headed to the show we had organised to see by Cirque Du Seoul with our Cessnock friends, it was hilarious a drag queen ran the show, have I said enough...
    Once the show was over we headed to dinner at a rooftop bar across from the Bellagio which gave us the best view of the water show out the front of the casino. We then headed to both the Bellagio and Caesars Palace for abbey then headed home to hit the sack ready for our long drive today! We have a group dinner at an Italian place tonight then we will be having an early night ready for skiing in the morning ⛷❄️

    Lake Tahoe

    January 16 in the United States

    We had a great day skiing today! It is a lot different from skiing in Australia that's for sure, you catch a lift called a gondola up to the slopes from the closest town.
    They haven't had a lot of snow fall yet but we were lucky because it snowed today, the views from the lifts were spectacular!
    We headed home from the slopes and did some washing and got some takeaway Mexican with a few new friends and are ready to get to bed. Very keen for another day up there tomorrow!Read more

    Topaz Lake

    July 17, 2017 in the United States

    Day 15: Today's morning Antonia started hitchhiking towards San Francisco to surprise her boyfriend picking him up from the airport.
    I planned to hike the Eagle Falls Trail. But all I saw were million of cars. There was no more space for mine.
    So I changed my plans and decided to take a day off at the Pope Beach. Because I only was able to pay by cash I got my first after 2 weeks! 💵 Almost everything you can pay by card 💳 I enjoyed the sun for a while. Suddenly it was getting fuller and louder. I guess the working day of the Americans was over.
    Well I packed my stuff, found a campground on the map and started to get there.
    Wow! The landscape changed dramatically and it was so wonderful! 🏞 My campground was at the Topaz Lake. A huge lake between dry land. Such amazing!

    And hey: welcome to California! 🏖 That state is gonna be my favourite one! I got there and directly felt the summer, the beach, the holiday. And the landscape is awesome! I'm excited for the next days 😇

    Lake Tahoe

    July 16, 2017 in the United States

    Day 14: We started our long ride across the desert of Nevada. We passed the Great Salt Lake one more time and drove and drove and drove . That was our longest ride of the trip. It took about nine hrs and the sun was burning (up to 105 degrees Fahrenheit / ~41in Celsius).
    We stoped at a Indian Monument which was next to the I80. This Monument was built for killed Indians.
    After hours we did it and arrived at the Lake Tahoe.
    We found a campground where we just had to pay for the car park.
    At the end of the day we just relaxed at the beach of the lake.

    Finish Line

    September 20, 2017 in the United States

    Right now I'm settled in at the bar at the Montbleu Casino hotel sipping a local beer. Lot different from being out in the woods. My last night went fine. It remained sunny until.the sun went down. I found a camp spot out of the wind for the night, and only ten miles to the finish line. Still had 3 miles to get into town, but it was mostly downhill. Still haven't taken a shower. I needed this beer first.Read more
