US Road Trip 2016 – Days 11 & 12, Salt Lake City, Utah 

Nothing too much exciting about these two days in the capital of the Utah, though it turned out to be nicer than I thought. I had planned these two days of break in Salt Lake City to rest a bit and reorganize, since tomorrow I’m going up north to Wyoming, where I’ll spend six days in a row camping inside both  the Teton and Yellowstone National Park.

So I spend the first day riding my bike across the city center, which is more live than I expected it to be, and the second buying some groceries I’m going to need while camping, and having my laundry done. Something that in travel this long, at a certain point you have to do.  But I shot two clips anyway, cause I’m finding them very useful even for me. Putting all on clips, I’m deleting all the video files on my phone. I got a feeling the next days I’m gonna need all the memory storage available.


Take care guys!


US Road Trip 2016 – Day 10, Bryce Canyon National Park 

Well, Bryce Canyon. There wouldn’t be much else to add. Just come visit if you get any chance. I admit when I planned this trip I had some expectations, but I had never thought these Parks could have made me feel all of these sensations I’ve been feeling since I got here. And Bryce Canyon got right away at the top of the list of my more memorable days. I think my face in the clip shows exactly how I felt overwhelmed by all that beauty. By the way, I found in hiking a pleasure I never thought I could have found before in an activity like that. Well, it goes without saying though, hiking in those kinds of places couldn’t be otherwise. That said, I’ve found a world and people unknown to me before. I’ve met so many hikers along the way, from all around the world, and had so many nice chats and shared moments with them, during the hikes or in the campgrounds. All of them have one thing in common. They’re all nice people. I hope this clip can get you an idea about how breathtaking Bryce Canyon can be. Take it easy guys!

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!

On The Road Again

2014-08-14 12.18.34-01

All right. Looks like I’m leaving again.

Although I get to travel a bit during the year, it’s usually in August that I get the longest period off work, hence my chance to organize a real trip. And that’s what I did. It took me two months of endless sessions on the Internet to plan every detail, but eventually I got it all figured out and planned. I’m heading West again. United States.

Many of you might already know it’s not going to be my first time in the US, I’ve been there many times in the last few years. I love the US and that love got me to see all the main American big cities, from East to West, and some of the beautiful big National Parks, touching about 20 States and counting.

And now I’m about to start a new road trip, which is the kind of trip I love the most. I’m going to cover 3500 km in 3 weeks, starting from Denver, Colorado, and ending in Boise, Idaho.

I already had more than a road trip across the US, and I covered that kind of distance just last year, so I know pretty well how to do it, and I know I can do it all by myself. This time though, it’s gonna be a real challenge.

I’m going to see many of the main Parks all across Colorado and Utah, then I’m gonna head North, to the Yellowstone National Park, then West to the Sun Valley,  Idaho. And the thing is, this time, I’m going to spend some nights camping inside the Parks.

The idea was, it should be awesome waking up, say on the edge of the Bryce Canyon, looking at the sun coming up its crests. Or in the middle of Yellowstone, hoping it’s not a grizzly that’s waking you up, calling for breakfast. It sounded amazing so I planned it this way. As a result, now I got I don’t even know how many reservations between hostels, motels, a 4 stars hotel in seven different campgrounds. I don’t even have a tent yet, go figure. That’s why it’s gonna be challenging, but I’m very willing to do it.

So, it’s with this kind of spirit that I’m leaving. I’m not going to bother you with every detail of the plan right now, but I’m gonna try to keep you posted on a daily basis, with pictures and videos, though it might get complicated along the way ’cause I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be hard to get Internet connection everywhere I’ll go. But you’ll definitely hear from me, and hopefully I’ll be able to make you live a part of this trip with me.

Meanwhile, feel free to share any suggestion.

Take it easy you guys.
