LA to Palm Springs

So as I mentioned in my last post I travelled to America in August with 3 friends. We did a road trip on the West coast with our main destinations being LA, Vegas and San Francisco. Over the 15 days we visited 3 different states (California, Arizona and Nevada) and drove over 2300 miles!

I had the most incredible time over in the states and would do it all again in heartbeat if I could! Some of my real highlights have to be the The Hollywood walk of fame, the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas (everything about it!), Yosemite National Park, The Golden Gate Bridge and Venice Beach. 

I kept pretty up to date with my instagram while I was away so some of you might have already seen some photos on there. I took my proper camera with me and I took over 2000 photos but obviously I won't be sharing them all.

We flew direct into LAX (Los Angeles airport) which took just short of 12 hours from London. It was the furthest place I had traveled to but considering I hate flying the flight went so quick and really wasn't that bad. 

We had a slight hiccup on our first night in LA which was a minor car accident (I wasn't driving!) but we were all okay and got a new car with no hassle! Anyway we visited the famous Hollywood sign (which is actually Tiny!) and the Griffith Observatory in the Hollywood Hills. We spent 1 night in LA before heading East to Palm Springs. 

Palm Springs was a real change from LA but it was so nice. On our way there we had our first In 'n' Out burger - why do we not have them in England? Really good and so cheap! We visited the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway which took you right up into the mountains and we saw some amazing views. We spent our evening at the local outlet centre before having some yummy mexican food and cocktails!

My next post will be all about our drive to Arizona and the Grand Canyon!

Thanks for reading.
