Posing around southwestern USA

This summer I went on a Road Trip with my friend Louise, to the southwestern part of the United States. Organized as we are the route was carefully chosen and motels/hotels and hostels along the way were all pre booked due to hight season.

Since a road trip like this is a once in a life time experience we wanted to utilize the opportunity to see lots. This resulted in 5500 km´s in 31 days and 20 different lodgings along the way. We saw amazing and diverse nature in northern Arizona and southern Utah, felt the crazy pulse of Las Vegas in Nevada and discovered coastal beauty and great cities along on the Hwy 1 in California. We had extreme heat inlands and cold winds on the coast. But furthermore things worked smooth apart from a small incident on our car door, caused by strong Hwy1 winds!

To summarize I can tell that this was a very pretty holiday but extremely intense. My plan is to give you the highlights in different postings during the coming months but as a kick of I give you a lot of me, posing from different locations we visited. Stay tuned 😉
