Join us on this amazing adventure...

Crossing the immensity of The Great Wall

On our third day in Beijing we went to the Forbidden City. Once we got there, as I’m sure you can imagine, there was a huge crowd. We were travelling to Huairou that afternoon, so there wouldn’t be a lot of time to visit everything given the crowd. We therefore just walked around the city and […]

Exploring Beijing and the Beihai Park

Our first days in China were a mix of excitement, about visiting a country with a completely different culture, and confusion, as due to the different culture it is not easy to move around and go places. We had a day-long journey from the US, with a stopover in Taipei-Taiwan. There Ruth and Noah were […]

A few hours in Taiwan …

We only had a few hours in Taipei, Taiwan, which was a stopover on our flight that left Los Angeles with Beijing as its final destination. As Fabio did not have a visa to enter the country, he stayed in one of the VIP lounges at the airport. Meanwhile Noah and I benefited from a free tour leaving […]

Aquatica San Diego – California

Aquatica San Diego was our sweet goodbye to the US. After spending two and a half months exploring this beautiful country, we spent our last hours before going to China celebrating on a high note in this very entertaining San Diego waterpark. We left with only one complaint: we didn´t have more time to spend […]

SeaWorld San Diego: our experience

SeaWorld San Diego was one of the places that we were most looking forward to during our visit to the city. This is very famous in the US because of its shows and the opportunity to get a bit closer to amazing animals such as whales, otters and belugas. We knew that Noah would enjoy […]

Driving through the Big Sur Scenic Highway

We left the beautiful coastal town of Monterey and went to Carmel-by-the-Sea via Pebble Beach and Del Monte Forest before staring our journey through the Big Sur Scenic Highway. It is a very nice coastal village and one of the most famous in California. There are signs for the coastal village of Carmel-by-the-Sea from the […]

San Francisco and Golden Gate Bridge – our second day

Our final day in San Francisco gave us some good memories of one of the most exciting cities in the US. Our second and final day in San Francisco was short, but very rewarding. Due to the fog, we explored the fishing village of Sausalito just a few miles from the Golden Gate Bridge. This […]

San Francisco – our first day

We have to admit that our first impression of San Francisco was not the best. We drove straight from Yosemite National Park to downtown San Francisco, and unfortunately the area near the Town Hall and Market Street is a bit dirty and smelly with rubbish. It may be that we were unlucky and arrived just […]

Yosemite National Park

After a week visiting some of the best National Parks in the world, Yosemite National Park was at the top of our list along with Arches National Park. We spent days on the road exploring the natural beauties of the US, but in our humble opinion this is one of the places that can´t be […]

Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park – California

The day at Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks started very early in the morning, after we had driven all through the night from the Grand Canyon. We were supposed to sleep somewhere near Las Vegas, but we felt like driving and did not miss the opportunity to visit the park a bit earlier than […]
