The day we were all dreading finally came. Time to fly back home to reality. After an amazing 40 days of adventures, we were ready to fly home and see all our family and friends again. We couldn’t help but think back on the amazing trip and memories. Our 6 week adventure around the USA and Canada has come to an end. (more…)

Day 27 – San Francisco

The day of exploring San Francisco had arrived… this is a spot which had been on my bucket list for ages so I was so excited to start the day of adventures. First stop was the windiest street in the world(Lombard St.)…. we drove down it which was a very cool experience with amazing views. A little tip is to drive around this area(other streets and hills nearby) as it is very high up and gives you a real feel for the character of the city and houses with each road surrounded by unbelievable views all around.

Today began with a morning walk in Armstrong Redwood State Park. Armstrong Redwoods preserves stately and magnificent Sequoia sempervirens, commonly known as the coast redwood.

Today we woke to a beautiful breakfast by the man who owns the house we are staying in(he is a local chef). He came to cook us breakfast which was such a treat and by far the nicest breakfast I have tasted in the USA. It set us up for the full day. We went to say goodbye to our friends and started on our road trip to Napa Valley. (more…)

I must say the West Coast of America is so different to the East Coast and it really is a great experience to get to see and explore both. And so (after some American pancakes), the road trip which is very ‘OnTheQT’ began. Oregon House is an area in Yuba County, California. It is located 22 miles northeast of Marysville, north of Sacramento. (more…)

Day 22 – Chicago

Blogger: Stephanie Lynch

We woke to our last day of adventures in the amazing city of Chicago. We had an early start again with a morning walk at Navy Pier. This is a tourist gem and very busy during the day so we decided to check it out before any of the hustle and bustle began. Exploring it before it came to life at 7am. It truly is a hidden gem before the hustle and bustle begins with locals walking and enjoying the peace and quiet in the early hours of the morning. (more…)
