Santa Barbra!

Beautiful, little Santa Barbara. This was Easily one of my most favourite places Gideon and I ventured to on our big American Road trip. We felt so content, free and at peace. I loved exploring this incredible town with my love.

From walking along the Wharf, to tandem bike riding, to sitting on the beach. We felt like we were actually able to relax and take a little break from travelling. We were able to fully emerge ourselves in all that Santa Barbra had to offer and that gave us the chance to recharge and get ready for our next adventure.

Hollywood!

If I am being completely honest, Hollywood was my least favourite place Gideon and I visited on our trip.

We loved dong the Hollywood hike but HATED down town Hollywood.

It was awful. So many people view it as this amazing place in Los Angeles, where all the stars live, full of glam. If you walk the streets all you get is rude people in a hurry, it’s a really dirty place and it is SO busy and chaotic all the time.

I am not saying Hollywood isn’t for everyone, this is just my personal opinion and experience of Hollywood. 10/10 would not go again!

Santa Monica + Venice Beach!

Venice, California is a very very interesting place! It’s really hard to explain unless you’ve been there and personally experienced it for yourself. It has it’s own individual vibe to it. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Walking along Venice beach was incredible. The beach it’s self is so long. It was so beautiful to see people from all around the world of different cultures and backgrounds experiencing the same joy of the ocean, together. I am really thankful I was able to experience something so beautiful.

Santa Monica had an amazing vibe, completely different to Venice. It was a place of all things fun and adventure. Everywhere you looked something was happening and everyone was happy.

America – West Coast.

In August, 2017 my incredible boyfriend, Gideon and I embarked on a huge American Adventure. I met him during my time spent in Lincoln, Nebraska. I was working at a Christian summer camp and God allowed our paths to cross and the rest is history.

I am a very spontaneous and adventurous person. I love exploring new places, meeting new people and embracing God’s amazing creation. Gideon is much the same but a little bit more of a planner (Thank God).

We visited Colorado, Arizona and California. I was in constant amazement of all of the breathtaking sites we saw on this trip. What an incredible way to experience God in all his wonder! The places we saw were like nothing I’ve ever seen before in my life. We stopped at a lot of national parks and it was so beautiful to be in awe of each view with a bunch of strangers all just admiring Gods spectacular work.

There are some things in life that you just can’t wrap your head around and this trip was one of them. I had been praying for a travelling experience like this for a long time and it’s just amazing how God goes above and beyond because not only did my prayers come to pass but I was also blessed enough to experience my dreams with my boyfriend and best friend by my side.

Here are some photographs of our incredible American adventure.
