Where I stayed
Phoenix and Palm Springs...
We stopped at a few view points along the way towards Phoenix, it's so easy to forget that the spectacular natural scenery doesn't end in the national parks. Unfortunately I forgot to take the advice of a guy in Seattle to go through a small town, about 20kms down the road we could see were the town must have been, it looked spectacular! Lesson learned.
We drove through Phoenix in the evening to find a cinema, saw Jackass 3d which was pretty hilarious! I'd highly recommend it if you don't mind seeing vomit and worse in 3-dimensions...otherwise wait for the dvd release...
Coming out of Phoenix we saw loads of wind turbines, it's actually really surprised me how many we've seen, all over America.
Googlemaps completely screwed us over in Palm Springs which was unfortunate...still we abused the free wifi in Barnes&Noble (having already abused the expensive internet on Kes' iphone far too much...) and found where we were actually supposed to go :-) Once we finally arrived it was time to repack our stuff...God knows how we'd made such a mess in a few short days!! Good team effort all round ;-)
Earlyish start the next day and on to LA proper! Nightmare driving the huge truck back into their little carpark but I successfully ditched it somewhere, caught a cab to LAX and time for Kes to go home, and me to go to Fiji!
I feel a "ps" is important here, I've had a fantastic time in the states, however I have fallen prey to the standard traveller virus. For all that I've seen in this huge, diverse, fantastic country, being here for two months has just made me realise that there's so much more of it yet that I want to see so, yes, I'll be back....
