After our time in San Francisco, we (re)packed our bags, grabbed the rental car (we had a convertible ford mustang, someone was extremely particular about this detail of the trip) and headed south along the coast to find Carmel.
After years of thinking about it, I finally got round to planning a US road trip this year. The trip was a little over two weeks, heading down the west coast to LA, over to Palm Springs and ending in Vegas. So earlier this month, we packed our bags, bid goodbye to a grey London and boarded a plane bound for San Francisco.
Armed with jeans and light jumpers, we arrived early afternoon ready for the cool San Francisco temperatures that everyone (and I mean everyone, every weather site, every blogger, everyone I know that has been) had warned us about. Cue a record breaking heat wave (we’re talking 100+ Fahrenheit people) and two extremely over dressed and perspiring Brits. Making the most of the heat (and attempting not to melt), I donned a hat, grabbed an Uber and we headed to our hotel. Using Uber was handy during our trip, just be sure to pay attention to the pick-up/drop off points at the airports to avoid dragging your bags around arrivals like we did...
