    Who turned up the sun?

    July 19, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 35 °C

    Apologies for the late 'footprint'. We camped in Lake Havasu last night very much in the wilderness on the Colorado River. It was magical. We swam in the river which was heavenly in the 40° heat! I've never experienced heat like this before. It's so hot and dry it's like standing in an all over body dryer. It's bizarrely not that unpleasant. I struggled more with the heat in the cities.

    The views along our tour guided road trip through California and into Arizona were stunning with the biggest and best views to come today as we arrive at the Grand Canyon.

    The group we're with is small and friendly although Kate and I are the oldest (including the leader!). We decided between us we were going to try as many different oreo flavours as we could. This can only end badly. The adventure got off to an interesting start when we attempted to take an alternative route to a rest stop and found ourselves stuck in the dust. It took the entire group to push the mini bus out. We still think it was probably a thinly disguised bonding exercise!

    I look forward to sharing more photos with you soon.

    Lake Havasu City (London Bridge)

    February 21, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Bit of a tourist stop of the road from Yuma to Las Vegas. The bridge was built in 1930 and originally spanned the actual River Thames in London, England. By 1962 is was not up to expected traffic capacity and was sold to a Robert P McCulloch who dismantled it and reassembled it on a peninsula in Lake Havasu, a dammed lake on the Colorado River, Arizona! The rebuilt bridge was completed in 1971, then the waterways dug out under it, turning the peninsula into an island with a ready made extremely historic bridge already in place. There is now also a quaint "Olde Englande" village built around the mainland end of the bridge and it is quite the tourist attraction. A fun stop! More story here...Read more

    Arizona, Arizona, alles klar...

    October 21, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Nach einer Autofahrt durch die Mojave Wüste überquerten wir die Grenze Arizonas. Ein bizarres Bild bot dann der Colorado River mit seinem azurblauen Wasser und palmenreichen Ufern unterhalb der kargen roten Steinlandschaft. In Lake Havasu City hatten wir einen Übernachtungsplatz von dem aus wir direkt in den See springen konnten. Das war auch gut so, weil hier sind es flauschige 31 Grad gewesen. Nun erkunden wir noch die hierher verfrachtete London Bridge. Ja echt jetzt: die reale Verkleidung der alten London Bridge, die man hier an eine Stahlkonstruktion geklebt hat. Ich wiederhole mich, aber die spinnen, die Amis 🙈Read more

    Van route 66 naar de Londen Bridge

    August 7, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 43 °C

    Een leuk weetje is dat ze in Londen hun eerste London Bridge hebben verkocht aan een gekke Amerikaan die iets miste aan het Havasu Lake. Ze hebben de brug steen per steen helemaal terug rechtgezet met de bijhorende straatverlichting. Zo staat de Londen Bridge nu dus te pronken aan het Havasu Lake.

    Lake Havasu City, USA

    October 9, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Es ging von Las Vegas, Nevada nach Lake Havasu, Arizona. Nach ca. 4h in der Wüste kamen wir endlich an dem See, der mit dem Colorado River verbunden ist. Ein wunderschöner Campingplatz direkt am See. Es ging an den Strand zum Baden und Relaxen. Einfach Urlaub. Abends gab es selbstgemachte Burger. Wundervoll war der atemberaubende Sternenhimmel.Read more

    Lake Havasu und der 4. Juli

    July 4, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 41 °C

    Okee. Welch surreale Welt. Wir sind auf dem Boot von Ryans Onkel Mike und genießen das erfrischende Nass bei über 40 Grad. Der See liegt mitten in der Wüste und die Stadt darum herum ist ein Ort für Boots- und Ferienhausbesitzer. Im Kanal, in welchem übrigens die alte London Bridge steht (Fun Facts with Ryan weiter unten), tummeln sich Boote neben Boote. Eines grösser als das andere mit crazy People oben drauf. Es wird gesoundet, getanzt und natürlich getrunken von morgens bis abends und das das ganze Wochenende lang. Proscht! ;)

    London Bridge
    This London Bridge was completed in 1831 as they replaced the old one which was too narrow.
    As time passed, the new bridge began sinking at the rate of an inch (3 cm) every eight years. By 1924, the east side of the bridge was some three to four inches (9-12 cm) lower than the west side. The bridge had not been designed to withstand 20th century automotive traffic.
    In 1967, the Common Council of the City of London began to look for potential buyers for the London Bridge. Lake Havasu City founder and entrepreneur Robert P. McCulloch placed the winning bid of $2,460,000.
    Each block was meticulously numbered before the bridge was disassembled. The blocks were then shipped overseas through the Panama Canal to California and trucked from Long Beach to Arizona.

    A day off at lake Havasu

    August 8, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 42 °C

    Na de prachtige zonsondergang vlogen duizende vleermuizen uit om eten te gaan zoeken op het meer. Een ervaring dat we nog nooit gezien hadden, zo cool om te zien!

    Lake Havasu State Park

    March 26, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 24 °C

    Made it to Arizona.
    Saw 5 ultra lights flying by our lakeside campsite.
    Visited London Bridge and had an adventure biking back in the dark without lights. We'll bring our headlights next time we bike around sunset.
