Our USA Road Trip [Blog Update]

It has been a long time in the making, but after months of planing, organizing and saving up, our next travel destination is waiting for us. I'm headed with my friends to the USA. Our trip starts tomorrow, as we are headed for Belgrade to catch our first flight (of two) to get to Los Angeles. Our plan is to do a road trip across the Pacific Highway in California from Los Angeles to San Francisco, then visit Yosemite National Park, head over to Las Vegas and also make a stop at the south side of the Grand Canyon and then return to Los Angeles.



It's a fairly big trip that will last over two weeks with travel, so I had to make this little announcement to let everyone know that you won't be seeing me visit you that much. I have some prepared posts that are scheduled to be posted on the blog so I won't be completely gone. "Through My Lens" will be up on Monday as planned, so you will be able to link in.

I hope to do a couple of "On Location" posts, like I did last time, during our visit to Prague, so be on the lookout for that as well. But mostly, I hope to have a great time in the United States and see a lot and while I did visit 10 years ago, this will be a whole new experience for me. The Canon is locked and ready as well and you can expect a fairly big travel series once I return. So wish us luck and I hope to check in with you soon.

  14. Make sure (if driving) to take Highway 101 up to San Francisco as Interstate 5 can be soooo boring. If you take 101 you will pass a couple cities I lived in (Camarillo and Ventura) although the highlight city on this route would be Santa Barbara. Lots of nice little beach towns along this route further north, too. Have fun!!

  53. Thanks for the information you provided, it is really great to help from your side but I got a complete solution from the mentioned site.Here I also want to suggest to your reader who usually travels from one place to another,Did you make a reservation with Eva Air? But due to any circumstance you cannot board your flight on that particular date? Then don't get confused as you have the option to change your flight ticket. Eva Air offers a flight change facility where you can simply modify your booking. As per EVA Air Change Flight Policy
    you can make EVA Air change flight requests online through the booking section, Passengers request flight change within 24 hours from scheduled departure. So there is no flight change fee and it also depends on the type of fare and seat availability.
