Three months ago I met someone in a bar on a Sunday. He had quit his job and flown to America from the U.K. to buy a car and drive across America. We hit it off, and as I had some time off from work, I decided to join him for the tail end of his trip. A little leap of faith and some luck with the timing, and I had the time of my life driving the West Coast with someone who I met on mere happenstance. We went to Yosemite, The Grand Canyon, Big Sur, and Monument Valley and hiked across rivers, up mountains and along waterfalls. We went to Napa, Santa Barbara, Phoenix and San Diego, ate our weight in Mexican food and drank gallons of America’s best wine. We saw Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and San Fransisco and danced our faces off, ran along the beach, and made friends with a million strangers.
I love traveling. I’ve always had a little bit of an international bias, and would never pick to do a huge scale American road trip. But I learned that I live it such a dynamic, awesome, and unbelievable country. Every little bit of it is so unique. I also learned how saying “yes” to opportunities is the most rewarding way to live life. Check out my favorite shots below!
