    Love Amongst the Cacti
    Sure there’s desert and cacti, but Arizona has many surprises, as I learnt when I embarked on a roadtrip of the state.   I’d been feeling flat, down, for months. That changed in the bizarre Phoenix landscape. The city is dry, brown with scrubby fields of the classic saguaro cactus, sporting crimson flowers when I was there in August. But Arizona’s capital is also ringed by funky hills, red and worn into tables, animals, statues – or so my imagination saw.   The... read more

    The things you can only see in a Motorhome (preferably Apollo:)
    I have gypsy blood. I love to travel. And when we travel we like to do it properly ~ see the land, meet the people, get off the beaten track a little.  Words can tell a story, but photos can go that little bit deeper.  read more

    Fear and Loathing and then Las Vegas!
    From the moment my partner started driving the motor home down the world's crookedest street in San Francisco I knew he had made a mistake. It seems motor homes are everywhere in the USA but there are some places they just should not go. By the time Trent realised this it was way too late and there were far too many people taking our photo. Try convincing everyone heading down the hill behind you on the world's crookedest street that it's a good idea to back... read more

    Grand canyon
    This was the best day.  The Grand Canyon is amazing and so is the country that surrounds it. My sister, niece and I had a wonderful fun filled day at Hualapai ranch. No one was really having much fun until we started to lassoo some cows and have a go at being a gun slinger. Much laughter and great memories . read more

    It's amazing what great little 'unexpected finds' you stumble across on a road trip. It was thanks to our Apollo camper (and equal thanks to my inability to follow a map or read a GPS from the passenger seat) that we ended up at Floores Country Store in Helotes Texas, just out of San Antonio. The store, which actually turns into a regular 'shin dig' has hosted greats like Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson and Elvis to name but a few - I was in... read more

    The Joys of an Apollo Motorhome in California
    Sandwiched in the middle of a 26 day USA holiday our 10 days in the Apollo Wanderer RV was a very welcome break from hotels and restaurant food. We had been to New York and Washington, had a wonderful time but were getting fed up of eating out and packing/unpacking suitcases in hotels. The RV was a home from home with our own cooked simple food, comfortable beds and campfires. Meals were taken under the awning or the stars and... read more

    6 years ago we left home for a two months trip in US, Canada and Alaska. Mom, a clinical psychologist Dad, a Photographer and me (I was 3 years old at the time). It was a great adventure, we so many things on the way. The most amazing thing we saw were the bears, they were playing in the water like little children and they looked so cute. They were not scary at all. But best of all was our... read more

    Grand Canyon Hike
    Ever had a dream to hike to the bottom of the Grand Canyon?  I did ~ not the conventional way, but in the most exciting way possible.  Lucky for us, we did our American trip in an Apollo Motorhome, so it was possible for us to get to the starting point at the top. Without it, this would have been impossible.  Following is part of my diary on our hike into the Canyon:   This morning I woke with a fever, sore... read more
