Carmel


Back home after the US trip I’m checking all the pictures and they are for sure a fantastic memory of what we saw. What you are is what you see, and we saw something that enriched ourself. We spent the last day in Carmel, with its beaches and houses and golf courses. Very chilly, but very lovely place to stay, maybe not in summer when the fog is there everyday. See you soon California.

Aquarium


Yes it’s the best one! A journey in the sea, discovering what you can see diving in a life. And a lot of splash places for kids at the Monterey Aquarium. Believe it or not, the last picture shows a sea horse!20110810-021220.jpg

State route 1


The ocean on the left. Mountains on the right. The sun in front of you. Wind, waves, fish, streeeeet… This the “1”! (today from Santa Barbara to Monterey)

“sss”: sun, surf, Santa Barbara


The perfect mix after many miles around the west lands: “sss”…! Santa Barbara is relaxing and in these day there’s also the Old Spanish Fiesta: the atmosphere is the best of the year. Only the waves are calm.

From AZ to CA


Some days ago we spent all day on the road, travelling from the Gand Canyon village to Disneyland: 460 miles. A long ride on very hot roads (43 Celsius in avergae), behing the glorious route 66, with a lot of music and games like Uno and all the iPad can offer. I need to say that the air conditiong of our car was our best fiend!

Scent of Sequoia


Sequoias can give you a sense of peace: so strong, so quite. Sooner or later they’ll fall down, but nothing is usually happening when you walk in the Giant Forest: everything is so magic.
And the night at the Wuksaki lodge is special as well, a warm house in the forest is ready for you.
