15 degrees Celsius. San Francisco. I insist on shorts. California is called “Sunshine State” and famous for its many hours of sunshine!
we start our roadtrip in the north of california
A car is rented, the Highway No 1 our first trip. Along the coast with many stops we take this scenic road to Los Angeles. The view is spectacular. Steep mountains to the left and deep down the ocean to the right. Between Los Angeles and San Diego on the Pacific coast I found my favorite spot: Newport Beach. Familiar from The OC (TV), also called Orange County. The most beautiful sunrises and sunsets are admired here at this wonderful beach. In Newport Beach, we found Cappys Café, which is a traditional American diner. I eat fluffy pancakes with lots of cream and omelet with broccoli here. All around the place surfer guys and men with deep voices in motorcycle outfits.
we are leaving the coast
We take some time and leave the coast to explore Arizona and Nevada. Cacti, emptiness and individual caravans make the landscape here. We visited the Grand Canyon, a huge rocky hole in the ground and later Las Vegas, the epitome of consumption, deception and abundance. Our flight heading back home is from San Francisco. Therefore, we take the Highway 1 another time, the other direction, and enjoy the views once more.
