Third time in USA – Part three

We took a flight from New York to San Diego. The first thing we did in San Diego was to rent a car, I already had been there but for Erika and Daniele that was the first time in California! So, I wanted to show them what I saw and what I remembered about my trip years ago

This was our car!

 

We began to see San Diego bay museum:


 

We met Riccardo, a friend of Daniele and Erika. He showed us the typical californian beaches and areas:


 

Look this awesome sunset !!

Having the car we wanted to see Newport Beach, we remembered the OC tv series and we were excited about to see Newport Beach!!

 

“California here we goooo”

We had to choices about to reach Newport Beach: going ahead driving or using a auto ferry. I must admit: I felt myself happy like a child using the auto ferry!! It was very small and it moved slowely, we had all the time to watch around us and to relax.

Finally we visited the center!!



 

We stayed there for the whole day, but moving back to the auto ferry I took a video!! I can’t forget those moments:

 

The last day we went to Los Angeles and Hollywood, walking for the walk of fame:


 

Goodbye Los Angeles:

 

The flight back to Rome was very boring, 12 hours where I could not sleep as I wanted
Actually I have been three times in USA, and I saw a lot of things. Next time I would like to visit the Canada!! 😀

The first time in USA – Part two

We drove to the Death Valley and we faced a single road, straight for more than 200km!
I was so excited about the landscapes and I was impressed by the desert we were crossing. First of all, imagine to drive from hours and to met just 1 or 2 cars in the opposite direction. Second, the temperature was very very hot. During our breaks we could not hear any noise, or wind, nothing of nothing!! It was unreal that silence.
We also saw some street shopping with the “missing” posters, I tought to be like in a movie.

I took a picture of navigator, of how many kilometers we should drove straight before take the right!

And of course, the temparature outside the car ( 100F = 37°C )

Death Valley here we go!!


Finally we reached the Death Valley and the Nevada state!!


What’s after!? LAS VEGAS!! We stayed there only for one day and one night, because we saw our time per target was drammatically decreasing. When you plan ‘x’ days for a city and you stay ‘x+2’ you must remove these ‘2’ days from another city 😦

Las Vegas is the city where EVERYTHING is possible and where u can met each type of person. First of all we reached our hotel, the Luxor
I said “what?” That hotel is a small town!!


These are some picture from Las Vegas 😀








What’s after? Los Angeles, Hollywood, Malibu, Santa Barbara, Santa Monica!!!
But first we went to Universal Studios
As a movies fan, I saw many film environment like Terminator, Waterwold, Jaws, War Of the Worlds, and much more

I was so happy!!







As the last part of the trip we enjoyed the famous Californian beaches






What’s more? I wanted to see more places like Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and I wanted to stay more days there.
When I took the flight back from San Francisco, I was so sad! I tought “How can I share what I saw? How can I talk about lakes, beaches, cities, towns, desert, forests?”
You can’t understand unless you plan a trip like this. That’s why I say California and Nevada must be visited at least one time!
