    California ihop

    December 29, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 7 °C

    Start. California entschädigt uns mit bestem Wetter und schönen Highlights. Die goldene Brücke so wie schöne Küstenblicke. Außerdem Straßen zum abheben. Am Abend ist kalt und es gibt Pizza.

  • Day15

    Half Moon Bay State Beach

    September 19, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Before the check in into our appartment for SF we got some time to kill. Therefore we decided to drive here and enjoy the beach a bit. The waves are pretty high compared to what we are used to in europe.

    West to San Francisco

    November 18, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌫 13 °C

    Left Yosemite and drove westwards across rolling fields and vineyards to San Francisco, the other of California's great cities. Drive wasn't too bad, fairly boring interstate roads for most of it.

    Our first stop was down south at Cupertino to have a quick look at the Apple Headquarters - they have a newly-built ring-shaped building that's very impressive, though obviously you can't see that much of it. They did have a cool visitor's centre that we enjoyed checking out though.

    Decided not to bother looking at any other tech company headquarters, and drove north into the city itself, to an area known as the Painted Ladies. This is a group of nicely painted houses facing onto a park that was made famous in a TV show - maybe Who's The Boss? I can't remember. Took a few photos then wandered a few blocks to meet up with a blogger friend of Shandos's and her husband.

    We'd originally planned to meet them in the park (she's a dog blogger and they had a nice dog as well), but with the constant bushfire smoke hanging around we decided to meet at their place instead. They were a nice couple - migrants from India around 15 years ago and had some interesting perspectives to share on life in the city and in the USA as well. We didn't end up leaving until around 6pm!

    Drove south to our hotel near the airport (we were staying well out of town as it was the cheapest option we could find!), and struggled a bit to find an acceptable option for dinner. Eventually we just had McDonalds which neither of us were especially happy with.

    Road to Nowhere...

    August 4, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    So we started from Fresno to take the coast road back to San Francisco. At San Simeon, there's a big Elephant Sal colony...we stopped to take pics... About another 40 miles up the road, there was a big rock slide on the road, with no detour...we had no choice but to turn around and back track about 60 miles, and detour through the Napa Valley, through the vineyards and join up with the 101 North, and hope there's an exit eventually for Monterey so we can get back to the spectacular coast views. Very sad to miss the Big Sur, and the views which are great. I am writing this as we drive, so stay tuned to see where we end up!Read more

    Leaving my heart in San Francisco

    August 4, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Ok, so the detour to get back was really long, and regrettably, we just did not have time to get back on the road to Monterrey - the detour added 150 miles! We had a couple of pit stops along the was, for coffee (PS Starbucks US has added a Flat White to their menu - I no longer have to order a latte, extra shot, no foam! Woo hoo! The Aussie invasion has begun!), and have now checked in to our hotel. Paul has taken off to return our rental car (bye Nissan Altima from Idaho!), and on his return, it's off to find some dinner! Exploring for the next days... I've added a couple of random pics from the last two days...Read more

    Es geht weiter - Neuseeland wir kommen

    January 2, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 13 °C

    Nun heißt es warten am Airport auf unseren längsten Flug von 12h 50min. Mal sehen wie viele Folgen Feuerwehrmann Sam Jonas in der Zeit gucken kann. Finn hat jetzt schon neue Fans gefunden.

  • Day4

    San Fran farewell...

    August 5, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    A few more pics from today. I had to put the funny boat shot in...Paul was trying to capture us in front of the Golden Gate Bridge, which of course was fog bound...but this one was very entertaining anyway...I couldn't resist!

    Tomorrow we have a very early start: we are being picked up at 5:30 for an early morning flight to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Will post more in the morning! Stay with me, trusty followers!Read more

    Lange kein Auto gehabt...

    May 6 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Damit wir unseren Roadtrip starten können, holen wir unseren Mietwagen ab und fahren direkt auf den Highway 1, der uns in den nächsten Tagen die Westküste runterführen wird. On the road again...
