Travel photoblog – Los Angeles to San Francisco

My first travel photoblog! This year’s most exciting city holiday was our two-week trip to America, to join 11 strangers on a Trek America trip from Los Angeles to San Francisco. We were so excited to spend some time in two cities on our ‘to do’ list that we decided to add on 3 extra days either side of our trek to really get stuck into L.A and S.F.

Our trek took us from Los Angeles –> Colorado River & Lake Havasu –> Grand Canyon –> Las Vegas –> Yosemite National Park and then finished in San Francisco.

I’ll post more about our trek really soon, but for now here’s a clever video Simon made from our holiday snaps…(best viewed in full screen to see those beautiful Grand Canyon scenes)

In June, Charley and I did the Western Wonder with Trek America. We spent 3 days in LA before a week travelling on a bus with people who were once strangers to us. We saw amazing sights and had a fantastic week before spending the last 3 days in San Francisco sightseeing.
