    Phoenix, USA

    July 25, 2017 in the United States

    Am selben Tag als wir im Pima Air & Space Museum waren, fuhren wir noch ein Stück weiter Richtung Grand Canyon Gegend. Deshalb haben wir in der Hauptstadt von Arizona einen kurzen Zwischenstopp gemacht. Auf der Strecke haben wir einen lustigen Kakteen-Hügel gesichtet 😂.

    Phoenix, Arizona

    June 4, 2015 in the United States

    It took just over three hours by greyhound bus to get from Flagstaff to Phoenix and I arrived at 3:30pm!

    On the journey i got to see some real cactus plants that US are normally famous for!

    I had booked into the Hi Hostel (being the cheapest) and arrived by taxi to find the hostel was located in the "burbs"! The hostel looked pretty cool thoigh with a bamboo hedge / screen and nice outdoor sitting areas and hammocks!

    Although when i went up the porch to check in everything was locked up! I webt around the back of the property to try and find some sort of human life and found three dudes playing ping pong! They were Matt & Dan from Melbourne and Finn with the aqua coloured hair from the UK! They told me the office didnt open until 5pm so i sat and chilled woth them until it opened!

    Once Keith had arrived, checked me in and showed me around... I was immediately hounded by Brien (from Wisconsin) and advised I would be eating with them at the hostel and he put the boys and I in charge of shucking corn!

    After a quick run down to the service station to buy beer we were quickly ordered back into the kitchen to help prepare dinner (similar to an Army boot camp exercise!)!

    We ended up cooking a masterpiece of crumbed chicken pieces on pasta with tomato sauce, cheese styled corn, roast potato broccolli and onion mix and a nice spinach salad! Not too bad for my first three hours in Phoenix!

    We ended up finishibg the rest of our beers outside in the beautiful desert heat and retired to bed!

    Roosevelt Row

    June 6, 2015 in the United States

    So it just so happens I was lucky enough to be in Phoenix on the first Friday of the month so tonight it is the art street festival on Roosevelt street and also lucky enough to experience one of the five days it ever rains in Phoenix! Not so lucky both would occur on the same day!

    Not to let the rain deter me i head out to find breakfast and check out "Roosevelt Row" in the daytime, rain jacket on hand!

    I end up finding Jobot Cafe and enjoyed the free wifi, Jo Mumma breakfast sandwich and a decent Latte! I then ventured out ince the rain stopped and explored many cool little arty places including Gnomes book shop! I made my way to the Japanese Friendship garden which ended up being quite a hike to find it was closed for the summer! What a bummer!

    I ended up heading back to the hostel to freahen up ready for the night festival!

  • Day3

    Phoenix, USA

    February 17, 2006 in the United States

    Lovely Phoenix this time of year ... 75f during the day and great cheap equipment for our travels. Travel on South West airlines which takes about 1.5 hours
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Our visit to AZ consisted of the following daily activities:

    Denny’s diner
    Shopping – REI, Sports Authority (For travel gear)
    Taco Bell
    More shopping – Target, Wal-Mart (For cheapo travel gear)
    Mexican food
    Margheritas

    If you can imagine the above on a daily basis with variations between restaurants, shops and alcoholic beverages! However, the itinerary usually always included Denny’s.

    Of course we exaggerate, our time spent in Arizona was lovely, staying with my family and even squeezing in a visit to Yuma to visit my Grandma and Grandpa, Aunt Tammy and family, as well as John.

    My little sister Taylor and I had a lovely time cycling to and form school almost on a daily basis. Keep it up Tays – you’re a really good little bike rider!!

    Paul and I went to an Irish pub quiz as well, with my sister Nikki – the Guinness tasted like shite but the Corona’s were lovely, as was the company. Good luck for your future quizzes, hopefully you’ll soon win enough to buy a round or two!

    It was great to see Mom and Bruce again as well – thanks for trusting us enough to let us borrow the truck on a daily basis – however Paul did do most of the driving – so you got off lucky!

    Had a great time getting together for Sarah's bachelorette party and seeing all the girls again. I think it's safe to say we're growing a bit tame in our old age!

    It was great to be home for a bit – a perfect place to start our journey. We love and miss you guys already.

    Breakfast with Rob and Linda

    We have known Rob for over 24 years. He and Linda just moved from Illinois to Arizona and we had a wonderful visit. We talked for hours till the staff kicked us out! The restaurant was called the Sunrise Cafe. Linda's son Mike and his friend joined us as well.

  • Day2

    Phoenix

    May 16, 2015 in the United States

    Phoenix - Wild Wild West Feeling. Leider hatten wir nur einen kurzen Abend hier als Aufenthalt. Diesen haben wir im Rustler’s Rooste Steakhouse verbracht! Toller Laden! Blick über die Stadt, Livemusik, Steak, endlos lange Tische und Kakteen.

  • Day119

    Phoenix Art Street Festival

    June 5, 2015 in the United States

    I met Cheryl from Fremantle and we decide to head out together to check out the festival! Lucky Cheryl had an unbrella as it came in handy!

    After a few art shops we decide to find a food van to quiet the hunger pains and end up settling on quesildas, eating them under the umbrellas and trying in vain not to get wet!

    To escape the torrential down pour we retreated to a bar (i can not remember the name) for some jager bombs and cheap margaretas!Read more

  • Day126

    Phoenix

    November 16, 2016 in the United States

    Nachdem ich die Schlüssel meines (riesigen) Campers überreicht bekam machte ich mich auch direkt auf. Ich hatte mir für heute noch kein Ziel gesetzt, ich wollte einfach schon ein gutes Stück fahren. Nachdem ich einige Zeit erleben durfte wie viel Spass der Verkehr rund um Los Angeles macht schaffte ich es dann bis nach Phoenix. Dass ich ein richtig langes Stück gefahren und auch bereits im Bundesstaat Arizona bin merkte ich erst als ich auf die Karte schaute. Ich suchte mir ein gemütliches Plätzchen für die Nacht auf dem Walmart-Parkplatz und deckte mich auch gleich mit einigen Dingen ein. Bei einer Verpflegungspause in einem Burger-Restaurant nahm ich bewusst einen Trinkbecher um diesen dann später immer wieder mit Wasser auffüllen zu können. Ich konnte mir auch einige Plastikbesteck-Sets "ausleihen" und musste mir so nur noch eine kleine Schüssel kaufen. Ich hätte natürlich auch für einige zusätzliche Dollar das Küchenset des Campers haben können aber das brauch ich ja nicht. Da ich vom vielen fahren richtig müde war ging es dann auch bereits ins richtig grosse Bett, natürlich stellte ich auch die Heizung auf eine angenehme Temperatur ein. Richtiger Luxus!
    In der ersten Nacht hatte ich ein etwas ungutes Gefühl auf dem Walmart-Parkplatz zu übernachten und rechnete damit jederzeit geweckt und weggeschickt zu werden. Das passierte aber zum Glück nicht.
