California Flag

California I’m coming soon

Two years after I’d been to the United States of America it’s again time to do so. 2012 I explored Florida. This summer it is time for the West Coast – California and Las Vegas. We’ll fly from Zurich to San Francisco by taking a direct flight. In my point of view, this means less stress regarding transfers and time loss at stopover airports.
First 4 days we will spend in San Francisco, where we want to see several things such as Alcatraz, Fisherman’s Wharf, the Golden Gate Bridge and of course ride a cable car. Then we have 2 days to travel from San Francisco to Las Vegas. We are going to rent a car and then cruising through Yosemite N.P. with a short side trip to ghost town Bodie. Then we spend 3 days in Vegas, gambling (and winning?) in Casinos, enjoying the nightlife and of course the exploration of Grand Canyon should not be missed. Also it is planned to spend some time at a Premium Outlet to buy stuff. I also desperately want to see a “Cirque du Soleil”-Show, hope it’s gonna happen. Later on our trip we drive forward to L.A. Hollywood, Walk of Fame, Beverly Hills 90210, Rodeo Drive, Venice Beach, Santa Monica Pier, Universal Studios are just a small bunch of things to visit around here. Afterwards San Diego is on our map. Time to rest and spend some days at the beach before we have to drive back the whole way to San Francisco. It is planned to take the longer, but much more beautiful scenic highway no.1 back North. Of course there will be some stopovers to take nice pictures.
Three weeks after I should be back in Switzerland. Let’s hope jet lag will not hit me that hard, although having jet lag after such amazing holiday definitely would be bearable. 😛
