With forests, lakes, rivers and snow-capped mountains, there is something for everyone. So here’s 7 reasons NOT to go! We’re thinking off you here, you’re going to be spoilt for life!
There’s something really special about going on a road trip, isn’t there? It screams adventures, great tunes and freedom. Some would say it makes the best kind of holiday.

Where best to embrace the great open road, than a Californian adventure – where Hollywood movies are made. A trip like this needed a lot of planning as I was covering a huge distance in two weeks. So to help all you would be travellers, I’ve documented my journey, sharing my itinerary and top sights along the way! I’ve broken my adventure down into a three part series, so grab a cuppa, settle down and get inspired to travel.
