Back to basic with Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort

Yosemite National Park was the last big stop on our USA roadtrip and unfortunately for us we arrived there on a pretty busy weekend. That easily explained our struggle previous to departure to find good accomodation for the night in the area.

It just appeals to the imagination of the big, far away country America. While San Francisco may be a big city, it… Continue reading Six things you have to do when you’re one day in San Francisco

How to start planning your South-West USA roadtrip: my itinerary and tips

April 30, 2016. D-Day. The day I was –finally- boarding a plane to go scratch off the #1 on my travel bucket list; the South-West of the United States of America. To say I was excited would be the biggest understatement in the history of understatements. In sixteen days, we’d travel through four of America’s states: California,… Continue reading How to start planning your South-West USA roadtrip: my itinerary and tips
