Trek America Diary #2

After the glorious Las Vegas we headed out of Nevada and into Arizona to visit Zion National Park and Lake Powell. Zion was our first campsite and naturally because we're British it decided to rain on us. Putting up tents in wet mud = unhappy campers!! Needless to say the first night was a bit damp but it didn't matter because we were all excited, and to be honest I was still chuffed I even managed to put a tent up!

 First camp dinner cooked by myself, Amber and Rach :) I look really nice here after being caught in the rain.......
 At the top of the mountain after our early morning hike. 
The view from the top....it was a lot higher than it looks!
 Lake Powell.
Me in lovely lake Powell looking super brown!

This seems like soo long ago now it makes me sad :( 
Next stops were Utah and GRAN CANYON!!!

Trek America Diary #1

Right I haven't blogged in soooo long, I've definitely got out of the swing of things. But I'm back from my mini adventure and now I'm going to bore you all with the details of it...including LOTS of photos.

Basically I was getting fed up with the never-ending job hunt and it was getting me down a bit so I needed something to excite me and get me away from England for a while. So I finally booked my place on the Southern Sun Tour with Trek America which begun in LA and finished in New York.

Our first night was the one and only....VIVA LAS VEGAS!!!! I didn't think I'd enjoy it as much as I did. It is honestly amazing. It never stops, there's so much to see and the atmosphere is awesome. I partied on the rooftop of Palms hotel for god sake! 100% recommend it to everyone, the Bellagio fountain show is beautiful...it's just a magical city that you need to visit before you die.
