LA, Santa Monica & Venice Beach

November 21, 2015

And then there was one... Being back in Los Angeles meant that the tour had ended and we'd pretty much all gone our separate ways. A few of us were still staying in the same hotel in LA after the tour, but for the most part, our time together had come to an end.

Las Vegas... Take Two

November 17, 2015

55 Days, 37 US States and 2 Canadian Provinces later and we're back to our very first stop... Las Vegas. Vegas hasn't exactly been my favourite place we've visited, but as it's the last stop on the tour I knew I had to embrace it.

Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon & Zion National Park

November 15, 2015

Three more national parks in three days. We actually we went to Bryce Canyon after the second visit to Yellowstone, so technically four national parks in three days. We were really getting our nature on.

Bear Spotting at Yellowstone National Park

November 14, 2015

Yellowstone National Park was easily one of the places I was looking forward to the most. I mean it's prime animal spotting territory! With the hope of seeing some bears we spent a good 7 hours exploring.

Keystone, Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial & Deadwood

November 12, 2015

Today was a crazy busy day. We did all of the things. We were staying in a little cowboy town called Keystone which is basically at the base of Mt Rushmore. It's incredibly touristy, but then so is most of the USA.

Badlands National Park

November 6, 2015

Leaving Chicago meant that we weren't going to see another big city for quite some time, and we were getting back in touch with nature with visits to some of the most breathtaking national parks in the U.S.A.

Birthday Celebrations in Chicago!

November 5, 2015

So I've found the secret to not caring about getting older. Spend it in an amazing new city... like Chicago! No visit to Chicago is complete without an architectural boat cruise, so that's how we began my birthday.

Toronto & Niagara Falls | Canada!

November 4, 2015

I'd always been told that Toronto was a lot like Melbourne, they're both in the top 5 most livable cities in the world after all. So I was interested to see just how similar it is to the city I call home.

Quebec City & Montreal | Canada!

November 3, 2015

Enter Canada! I'd been looking forward to getting into Canada for so long because everyone always says it's very similar to Australia, however our first stop was Quebec City which was almost as if we'd suddenly flown to Europe.

Boston & Harvard University

November 1, 2015

Our stay in Boston started with a guided walking tour of Harvard University. Most of the U.S.A made you feel like you were in a movie or TV show, but being at Harvard University really felt like you'd jumped straight into a college movie.
