Hi, we're HELEN and SIMON - UK travel vloggers and roadtrip junkies. We're on the road again – this time in the USA! We took a 15-day drive around the United States. In the video we start in Las Vegas, before getting on the road to the Grand Canyon National Park for a few nights of camping. After, we explore more of Arizona and visit Sedona and Scottsdale, and then head to California for some relaxing time in Palm Springs before finishing the trip on the beaches of Los Angeles. http://passportstamps.uk/
All the details on where we went, what we did and where we stayed are below!
Thanks for watching. We’re just about to take on an epic around the world trip to India, Sri Lanka, Bali, Lombok, Australia, New Zealand and more of the USA - SUBSCRIBE to see more of our adventures as we upload them.
A note from Helen:
Hi everyone! We decided to upgrade our vehicle to a large Toyota which became our travelling home for a lot of the journey. We needed a car anyway so this turned out to be a masterstroke – it was cheap and surprisingly comfortable to sleep in! Mixed with a few hotels, it was a great way to see the country and took us to the heart of some amazing places like the Grand Canyon National Park and a beautiful campsite in Sedona. I would love to hear your comments on what your favourite places in the US are, and what you thought about our vdieo and the places we visited.
Happy Travels, Helen
