US Road Trip 2016 – Day 9, Capitol Reef National Park, Utah 

Another spectacular National Park in Utah, another adventure. I think I might have found a new hobby. Hiking. Hiking in Utah though, is a completely different story. Much nicer. This time though, I missed a mark and went the wrong way for over a mile. I got it when I realized I was the only human being in a mile radius in the middle of a desert of rocks. Then I went back and eventually found the right way with the company of an American girl that was hiking. We ended up then, spending the night together, admiring the milky way in one of the darkest places on the Earth. Capitol Reef National Park. That’s Utah guys.

US Road Trip 2016 – Day 7 and Day 8, Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park 

These last two days have been full of wonders, and that’s something I’d say rather usual,  like any other day here in Utah. 
I mean, even when you’re driving it’s a challenge trying to stay focused on the road, because your eyes wander through the surroundings, which in this particular part of Utah where I am right now, are mostly massive red rocks of every possible shape you can think of, and wide deep spectacular canyons. 

I knew I was gonna love Utah since I got a glimpse three years ago when I made it here just for a few hours, to see the Monument Valley (which is in Arizona but you make sure to get there from Utah, trust me on this), but what I saw these two days goes beyond what I expected it to be. 

Unfortunately being on the road doesn’t leave me to much time to write. 

I’ll just say, the Delicate Arch is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. Period. 

Then I’ll leave you at the two videos I made, while visiting Arches and Canyonlands, hopefully they’ll give some feelings about this incredible places. 



Take care!

US Road Trip 2016 – Day 5, Twin Lakes, CO 

It should have been just a place in the middle of my way to the Grand Canyon Of The Gunnison, turned out it was a beautiful camping surrounded by the Lake and the Rocky Mountains, with stunning views all over the place. 

It was my first day camping and I struggled a wee bit to build the tent, but now I got it, it’s very simple. Tonight it’s gonna take me 2 minutes, I’m sure. 

So, great experience. Unfortunately I don’t have time to write long posts while on the road, but I managed to edit some videos and I hope they’re going to give you at least some glimpses of how wonderful these places are. 

Here’s the one of my 5th day,

I’ll talk to you soon, meanwhile take it easy guys!

US Road Trip 2016 – Day 4, Red Rocks Amphitheater and Garden Of The Gods 

Hi everybody! It’s still me, this time blogging from Colorado Springs. I moved today and I’m staying in a motel just for the night.

It’s not a long drive to get here from Denver, still I had a long day. First thing in the morning, I went to the Red Rocks Amphitheater, then I got to my motel pretty soon. But the hardest thing I did today, was riding my bike all around the Garden Of The Gods. And I have to say that was really something.

Garden Of The Gods it’s a unbelievably beautiful Park of red rocks here in Colorado Springs. You can tell how hard it was by the swearwords on my video. But God, it was fucking worth it.

Tomorrow is going to start the camping part of the trip, I’ll be in Twin Lakes for my first night in a tent. I should be fine though. I’ll let you know anyway.

I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to post and share my videos, since I find it hard they’re going to have wi fi at the camping grounds, and I have to spare my gigas cause I need them for the GPS. But don’t worry. Either I’ll find a way or I’ll catch up with you later.

In the meantime, here’s my 4 day.
Take care guys!

US Road Trip 2016 – Day 3, Denver, CO 

Hello guys! I stayed in Denver today. I got to see all the things I didn’t see the day I arrived, and I gotta say it was fun.

First thing in the morning though, was heading to Walmart to get my tent and a sleeping bag, cause you know, I’m going to camp in some of the Parks I’m going to see in this vacation. Once I got it, I started my ride around the city.

I gotta say, the real deal here with me, is my Brompton. I usually walk endless miles every time I’m abroad, but this time is so much easier and I’m having a lot of fun and I don’t even get exhausted at the end of the day. Besides, this way I get to see a lot more in less time.

Also, it draws a lot of attention. I can’t count the times in three days, people stopped me to ask me A, how much does it cost and B, how much does it weighs. Or just to say it’s  cool. I kind of like that though. It is in fact really cool.

Anyway, I’m gonna leave you at my video, which this time got a better song, since I finally figured out how to deal with the copyright violations.

Take care guys!

US Road Trip 2016 – Day 2, Rocky Mountain National Park 

Second day of my road trip and I decided to make it to the Rocky Mountain National Park, which is about 90 miles from Denver.

I enjoyed the Park and did a little climbing. It was strangely hard and made me wonder what the hell happened in three days that I hadn’t been at the gym. Then I realized I was at 3657 meters above sea level. You know, I’m a city guy, how would I know?! 

That was also the reason why I felt a little sick. Nothing really bad, just a weird sensation. It takes a little to get accustomed to the height. 

And it was worth it, the Park is beautiful. But again, I didn’t have any doubt. 
Driving all around the US is something I surely recommend to anybody who’s fond of landscapes. Unfortunately that is a sensation  I’m pretty sure I can’t make you feel through my pictures, so as soon as you get a chance, go for it. 

I tried though, so here’s my results. Great views and mountains everywhere. Rocky Mountain really rock.

US Road Trip 2016 – Day 1, Denver 

Hi everybody. I made it, I’m in Denver right now. I had a long travel but everything went well. Well, except for the fact that at the airport they had my new luggage basically destroyed. Other than that I’m fine and I’m about to get this roadtrip started. 

I was at the hostel around 16.30 yesterday, so I had the time to settle and go out for a ride on my bike. It’s hot here, but acceptable. Few people around, very quiet, peaceful, no traffic at all. I guess it’s the period, too hot to stay out during the day. All in all, a nice little town.  I enjoyed my little stroll and shot some pictures and videos around Downtown, and that’s what I’m going to show you. 


Hopefully I’ll be able to update you guys on a daily basis, but if not don’t worry about it. You’ll be hearing from me soon. 

Take it easy guys!
