GORMAN, CA (on the I-5) – We’re headed north to Sequoia/Kings Canyon national park and have stopped for the night. As it’s dark outside, we’re not really sure where we are. There was a sign saying Gorman when we pulled off, indicating some kind of town, but all we’ve seen are a couple of gas … Continue reading »

Good habit

CAYUCOS, CA – Big Sur may very well have been the ultimate coastal drive. All in all you could do it a few hours, but there are so many vista points you want to stop at, so it takes a while longer than the sat nav suggests (not that you need sat nav there; there’s … Continue reading »

Highway 1 revisited

CAYUCOS, CA – It appears Top Gear got it wrong when they named the winding roads of the Stelvio the best highway in the world.

We’re moving at a slower pace, but that just means more time to enjoy things: views, airplanes, sand, … Continue reading »

When looking at our previous visits to the US, I realised I’d missed a state on our list: Arizona, where we went to Grand Canyon, of course. We’re heading back to the states again next week. We will be driving around some, but I don’t expect us to stray outside of California, so no new … Continue reading »

a sort of homecoming

So it always seems to take me a week or more to finish off whatever blog entries I should write to conclude a recent trip. I think it’s down to needing time to decompress after any holiday. The last one was a bit special though, as I wasn’t due back at work for another month, … Continue reading »

Oh Canada!

Helga and I were discussing some details (Banff and Jasper) of our trip to Canada a couple of years ago and to refresh our memories we had to re-read our travel notes from then. Man, that was a great trip: 2009-09-02 canada
