West Coast Roadtrip – 2015

We’ve always wanted to hire a Mustang convertible and travel around the states with the top down feeling the sun on our cheeks, so that’s what we did!
We flew to LAX, picked up the Mustang (Xena-as in warrior princess) and took her for a spin to Santa Monica where we began our journey.
We travelled to Cambria, Monterey, San Francisco, Bakersfield, Las Vegas, Flagstaff, Palm Springs, San Diego, Anaheim and finally Hollywood.
We crossed into 3 states, ate a million amazing burgers, played ‘Kiss’ crazy golf in the dark, rode a helicopter into the Grand Canyon, hot-tubbed under the stars, met Penn & Teller, shot guns in Vegas, whipped ass at ‘Toy Story Mania’, climbed a mountain to see the Hollywood sign, GRINCHMAS, stuffed our faces at a Thanksgiving meal, made friends from Albuquerque, beer, beer and more beer, took a tram up a giant hill in San Fran, packed and unpacked the car countless times, watched the sun set into the clearest sea, ate a tonne of froyo, explored Salvation Mountain, stumbled onto a stinky and creepy beach then ran away, watched all 13 seconds of Conor McGregor’s fight surrounded by Americans in ‘Buffalo Wild Wings’, we went down the stairs from the 24th floor and never did it again, it was just a a whirlwind holiday!
We did so much that we can’t even begin to put it into words, so here’s a selection of photographs (including some from our trusty iPhones) to tell the story of the 2687 miles we drove in 4 weeks!
