I travel with the saying, “getting there is half the fun”. So did Clark Griswold in the 80’s movie National Lampoon’s Vacation. I’m not going to Walley World though, but I love to travel in the USA, and that’s exactly what this blog is about: American road trips, hiking and everything in between. Let’s be adventurous.
Sometimes a hike takes away my breath, not physically, but rather emotionally. It’s exactly what happened when I hiked to see The Wave on the Utah-Arizona state border.

I’ve done a lot of summer hiking in the American Southwest, and I’m fully aware of all the hazards. I had to learn from scratch as I’m from a country where the weather… Read More
Going on a road trip? Check out these 5 bridges. Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, Taos (New Mexico). At 650 ft above the Rio Grande, it’s the fifth highest bridge in the USA. Rio Grande Gorge is a rift valley and a stunning landscape. There’s a nice hiking trail along the rim. The bridge has appeared in several films like Natural Born Killers, Twins, Wild Hogs, and Terminator Salvation. The sad story about this bridge is the… Read More
