Exploring Yosemite in one Day

Exploring Yosemite in one Day

Yosemite National Park is known for its incredible natural beauty, giant sequoia trees, iconic vistas, gushing waterfalls, green meadows and the towering granite giants of El Capitan and Half Dome cliffs. Set within California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range a day exploring Yosemite was our next stop after Monterey Bay.

A visit that I’d been looking forward to since we first started planning our US road trip. Yosemite is a place that needs to be seen first-hand to be truly appreciated. Soak up nature’s glory, breathe deep the pine-scented air and feel very small amid the grandeur of Yosemite’s great outdoors.

Peru – My Dream Destination

Peru – My Dream Destination

There’s a place on my travel wish list that has fascinated and intrigued me since I first discovered its existence. A place of ancient civilizations, mountain-top ruins and home to one of mankind’s greatest mysteries. A place where you’ll find snow-capped mountains, the world’s deepest canyons and a vibrant swathe of dense tropical rainforest.

Where the people are welcoming, creative and colourful and a country whose capital is considered to be one of the best cuisine destinations in the world. Here are some of the reasons why Peru is calling me.
