TRAVEL – trek america’s grand trek: monterey, big sur & california coast

travel - trekamericas grand trek day 20 california coastToday I was so tired (after rolling into bed at 5am and waking up at 7am aha), but it was time to pack up and leave San Fran and head down the California coast on our way to LA!

On the way we stopped at Monterey beach for lunch and a spot of sunbathing, before heading to the iconic McWay Falls and Big Sur; passing some whales, dolphins and elephant seals along the way.

It was so nice to hear everyone reminisce about their funny moments, favourite places, and what they enjoyed. After our little chill on the beach, it was time for bed!

TRAVEL – trek america’s grand trek: san francisco, california

travel - trekamericas grand trek day 18 and 19 - san francisco, californiaWaking up from the night before, realisation soon set it that today we finally get to tick off San Francisco from our bucket list, and best of all, we get to celebrate the 4th of July there!

Also after 13 nights of camping on the trot, we finally get to stay in a hostel! Oh, what’s a bed again? It was only a three and a half hour drive to San Fran and before we knew it we arrived at the famous Golden Gate Bridge. Steve dropped us off where we quickly walked across it, taking in the amazing yet foggy views (the city gets really foggy during the summer months). It felt so surreal to be here!

linebreak After soaking in the views, we quickly checked into our hostel and got ready to go out for a sunset boat cruise. It was so nice to dress up and feel glam! On the way to the cruise, we paid a visit to Fisherman’s Wharf, where a few of us got a light bite to eat. Me and Polly decided to try out a dish called lobster bisque in a large bread bowl. It was actually really delicious! From there we walked to the famous Pier 39, where we boarded our boat, grabbed a cosy jacket and plonked ourselves onto one of the nets at the front. Aside from not seeing the sunset (as it was so foggy), the cruise was so much fun! We all got two free drinks each, had a laugh and danced to the music blaring from the speakers!

It was then onto the first of many bars, where we all indulged in cocktails (and garlic fries for me and Polly). I’m not gonna lie, I am a bit of a cheapskate, so in one bar I walked up to the bartender and asked for the cheapest and strongest drink they had (little did I know just how strong this $3 drink would be). It tasted like a combination of tequila, fireball and Wild Turkey all rolled into one! But it did the job perfectly. At this point, we all split up, with most of the group heading home.

I made a couple of American friends at the $3 drink bar, and asked them what place they would recommend for us next. They suggested heading to a gay bar, and so we all set off (the boys didn’t know where we were going at this point) and in we walked into this bar, where they all played pool (I’m such a good wingman FYI), whilst I watched, had a couple of drinks and secretly laughed as the boys soon realised where we were, and were a bit startled after a trip to the toilets! By this time it was getting pretty late, so we said goodbye to our new friends and headed home via a takeaway. It was such a good night, and it was nice to let our hair down! Plus we didn’t do too bad, we ended up rolling in at 3am…

linebreak Our first night in San Francisco was sooo good, and if this trip has taught me anything, it’s that I can surprisingly somehow still function without any sleep!

This morning I had a little lie in before heading out to explore on our free day with Polly, Marc and Rob. Rob led the way and took us through some dire-looking streets (and I mean the pee and weed smelling dire). However after a quick loop, me and Polly found a nice place for brunch at a cute independent café whilst the boys (who were pretty impatient with our wandering) grabbed a Starbucks. I have to say, our avocado, egg and toast brekkie was so lovely! Once we refuelled we headed up to Coit Tower, which had some amazing panoramic views of the city (we didn’t pay to go up it, but the gardens themselves still had spectacular views!)

linebreak We then headed down to Fisherman’s Wharf to hit the arcades, where we met up with Dave (who came back from a trip with a few of the others from Alcatraz), went into a photobooth and watched some street artists perform. Me and Polly had a little dance and it was so nice to chill and have a wander.

linebreak Later that afternoon, we joined a few of the others for an ‘urban adventure’ through Chinatown and North Beach. Our first stop of the tour was to get our fortune read at a Chinese temple, then it was onto a local fortune cookie-making factory before completing Chinatown with a tea tasting session. Then it was onto a quick walk around North Beach where we saw some amazing graffiti and shops before hitting a pizzeria. (I’ve never eaten so much pizza on this trip, so I opted for pasta!)

linebreak After tea we headed back to the hotel, got ready in our 4th of July gear and headed out to the famous Cheesecake Factory. Their cheesecake slices were so massive that most of us shared a piece between us! Me and Marc opted for Reese’s peanut butter slice which was so nice, yet a tad sickly aha! As it was Rob’s birthday, Marc got him a pink tiara and a Frozen watch that he had to wear all night. We met up with Kirsty, Holly and Bobbi and headed to Pier 39 to see the fireworks which were okay – nothing to special (maybe it was the fog?) Once the fireworks had finished, we hit a few bars, which were a bit quieter than we expected, but we did find a dive bar with dollar bills all over the ceiling which was pretty cool. We decided to join in this trend and write on a $1 bill and sign it with everyone’s name on from trek and hang it up (it’s so weird now to think that our note is still there in San Fran…)

linebreak As the night was still young, we tried to find another bar so me, Kirsty, Marc and Dave headed out but we couldn’t find any near our hostel, so we grabbed a slice of pizza at a takeaway before heading back.

A couple of us weren’t really tired, so we hung out in the common room, drinking, chatting and playing pool until 5am (so hardcore aha).

TRAVEL – trek america’s grand trek: yosemite national park

travel - trekamericas grand trek day 16 and 17 yosemite national parkAfter a chilled day in Lake Tahoe, we woke up and packed our tents away ready to head to Yosemite!

On the drive there, me, Marc and Annalie were in the back of the van playing cards when Marc suggested a forfeit game. You had to guess what suit and colour a card was and whoever loses their guess has to be the winner’s ‘slaves’ for the day. It was a tense moment, but luckily I won (after a Texas Hold’em streak no less) and they were, for the lack of a better term, my b*tches for the next 12 hours. Woop!

linebreakOn the long drive to Yosemite, we stopped for lunch at the Volcanic Islands on Mono Lake. It had some amazing views and we also got to look around the visitor’s centre. With the forfeit in full force, I kindly asked Annalie to make me a wrap, whilst sending Marc to get me a glass of OJ (I could get so used to this!)

linebreakAfter lunch, we got back in the van and after a few hours drive, arrived at Yosemite with the first port of call being a hike up Lembert Dome (no rest for the wicked, eh?) It was such a tough hike but we finally made it to some spectacular views overlooking the park. Steve gave us the option of hiking to the very top of the mountain (where you could literally slide down to your death at any moment). After much debating, me and Bobbi decided to face our fears and give it a go. It was so scary climbing up with hardly anything to hold onto – we had to follow Steve’s exact footsteps – but once we made it, it was such a breathtaking experience. Just as we were taking plenty of selfies and milking in the views, it started thundering (typical) and so we headed back down and went for a dip in the lake. The water was so murky however, that only Holly and the boys decided to go in.

linebreakToday is Holly’s birthday, so we all got her a card and a delicious chocolate cake. What’s more, as a special treat, Steve relieved us of our cooking duties and grilled some delicious steaks! During tea, someone (okay, that might have been me), decided to (playfully might I add) put some birthday cake on Marc’s face – only a teeny bit. This little act was met with a ‘caking’ in the face off Steve and a condiment fight soon ensued between Kirsty and Marc. The best bit? When Kirsty grabbed the last slice of chocolate cake and smacked it onto Steve’s bare chest (I can still hear the smush of the cake now). I never laughed so much! What a food fight! Once we cleared ourselves up, me, Marc and Matty introduced Holly to beer pong whilst the others chilled in front of the camp fire. It was girls vs boys, and me and Holly actually won two of the three games! I also took this time to take advantage of my previous card win, and got my ‘butlers’ to fetch drinks from the cool box to me and the others. Oh, the good life!

It was safe to say that night we all had such a good time and Holly had an amazing birthday. Bring on tomorrow!

Food fights, drinking games and an ‘okay night’s sleep’ later, Steve took us to our first of many Yosemite attractions today. Giant sequoias!

Walking through the woodland and seeing the world’s most massive trees was so cool. We climbed onto fallen down sequoias and even made our way through ‘tree tunnels’. It was like being a child again, and I loved it! It was also a great warm up for the tough hike Steve had in store for us today. Once we finished our ‘mini’ morning hike, we paid a quick visit to see the views of Half Dome – a challenging hike to many visitors.

linebreakThen it was time for the Mist Trail to see the spectacular Nevada waterfall. Polly and Kirsty decided to opt out of this hike and headed off to do their own thing, whilst the rest of us got our daypacks at the ready and made a quick pit stop to the toilets (turns out this trail has hardly any rest stops – oh how this would come to bite me in the arse!)

I’m not gonna lie, this was such a hard hike (I know I say this about every hike, but each one we do tests our limits). You were going uphill the whole time, climbing over massive steps and trying to work your way past people coming down. It was tough, but we finally made it to the second waterfall for a quick bite to eat.

linebreakUnfortunately at this point, the thunderstorms that had decided to follow us on our trek came and it was absolutely pouring it down. We made our way over a rocky bridge and took shelter in a hollowed out wall, when suddenly, yep, I needed to pee. At this point there were no more toilets, so Steve suggested that I head to a bush for a ‘drop and squat’. I know, I didn’t like the sound of it either, but desperate times call for desperate measures. Me and Steve headed back out into the rain, soaking wet, clambering over the rock bridge passing people who’d had stuck it out in the rain (they were so much hardcore than us) and then came the time to find my spot. Everytime I was literally about to go, a group of people emerged from the bushes. It was so nerve-wracking! I shouted to Steve, who was waiting patiently (and probably thinking I needed to go for something else as I took so long finding a place) that I was going to have a wander and find a secluded area, when, the heavens finally opened (and they literally did, it had stopped raining) and I came across some very well hidden toilets. Hallelujah! I never felt so grateful for a disgusting, smelly toilet in my life!

Toilet troubles aside, I reunited with the group and Steve informed us that the thunderstorm had made the rest of our hike near impossible. The rocks would be slippery and it would be just too dangerous to carry on. We headed back down the trail when Bobbi suggested that we could visit Glacier Point, a place she had been to before that was meant to have amazing views of the park. She was right, as soon as we got there, we couldn’t stop taking photos!

We soon reunited with Polly and Kirsty and headed back to camp for hotdogs and fries after a long day. We were all pretty exhausted and this called for only one thing – laundry! Tomorrow we’ll have a 3.5 hour drive to our next stop San Francisco!

TRAVEL – trek america’s grand trek: lake tahoe, california

travel - trekamericas grand trek day 15 lake tahoe californiaWe woke up this morning to another stink bomb prank (thanks boys!) and packed our tents away.

The one bad thing about being the middle of the desert. NOT SHOWERING! The campsite’s (if you can call if that) showers and toilets were so below par – they had 30 second timers (not good if you’re peeing and the lights suddenly go off), spiders for company and were just so dirty, so me and Polly cleaned up festival style with wet wipes whilst a couple of the boys had a dip in the lake before we headed to our next stop California!

linebreakOn the way, we stopped for lunch in Reno – the original ‘Las Vegas’ and also dubbed ‘the biggest little city in the world’, which as its name suggests, was packed full of casinos and pawn shops. After lunch and a long drive we finally arrived in Lake Tahoe! We headed to the beach where the boys, Annalie and Steve went on the jet skis, while the rest of us girls decided to try paddle boarding. It was so hot, so it was nice to cool off in the lake and learn a new sport. We used this time to paddle, sunbathe and even attempt yoga on the paddle boards! Once our hour was up, we laid on the beach topping up our non-existent tans (well it has been raining almost everyday on this trip aha) and me and Polly tried shaved ice for the first time! Yum!

linebreakWhen we arrived into our next campsite we were surprised at how many people were staying there – it was such a change from the quiet wasteland that was Lake Elko. Tent erecting done, we decided to head out and grab a Mexican meal using part of our food kitty. It was so nice to dress up and go out for a meal! (Oh the things like make-up that we take for granted!) A few of us shared a Wild Hibiscus pitcher, and I had a lovely pulled pork floata.

linebreakBellies full, me, Polly and the boys headed to a casino to bet whilst the others headed back to camp. The casino was so swanky (a taste of what was to come in Vegas I presume) and there was even a live band playing! For me personally, I decided not to gamble and I wasn’t really up for the night, so once the boys finished gambling, we hailed a cab and headed home.

The next couple of days are going to be spent in our last national park together as a Northern Trail family – so sad! I can’t believe how quick this trip is going!

TRAVEL – trek america’s grand trek: elko, nevada desert

travel - trekamericas grand trek day 14 nevada desertWoke up feeling quite fresh this morning after last night’s antics and was freezing cold! A nice warm shower in the camp’s solo bathrooms (the best KOA bathrooms we’ve been to so far), however, definitely made me feel better for our drive to Nevada!

We did our standard routine of packing up out tents (practically pros now), had breakfast and headed into the van for a nine hour (yup, you read that right), NINE hour drive. On the way we stopped at an outdoor shop and had lunch outside a random museum before arriving at our campsite.

linebreakThere were no words to describe this campsite. Apart from: ‘oh my gosh, we’re all gonna die in some desert horror movie!’ The site was empty, filled with tumbleweed, weird bugs and the odd snake… To perk us up a bit, Steve initiated a water fight which soon made us feel a lot better. Annalie, Rob, Emma and Steph all cooked a beef stroganoff and a few of us went to the lake to watch the sunset and have a splash around.

We ended the night the only way we knew how, drinking games (I’ve never drunken so much on so many nights consecutively until this trip), before heading to bed and California tomorrow!

TRAVEL – trek america’s grand trek: jackson hole

travel - trekamerica grand trek day 13 jackson holeYesterday was such a busy day, so it was nice that today was our free day – something we had been looking forward to for a while!

Me, Bobbi, Polly, Holly and Kirsty decided to head into Jackson Hole town and explore the square, whilst the boys and Annalie went mountain biking and Steph, Emma and Jules did a hike in Grand Teton with Steve.

travel - trekamerica grand trek day 13 jackson hole - million dollar cowboy barwe went passed the million dollar cowboy bar
linebreak My mission for the morning was to hit the café for wifi (what can I say, three to four days with no internet is a struggle!) and to get some board shorts for whitewater rafting! We stopped by the Cowboy Café for breakfast and to get our internet fix, before having a shop around. Once I had found my board shorts, it was time to quickly head back to camp to get ready for whitewater rafting.

linebreakMe, Marc, Rob, Polly, Holly, Dave, Matty and Annalie all headed to Snake River (on an American school bus no doubt) to tackle their class three rapids. When we arrived we were greeted by rain (no surprise there), got our life jackets on and headed out onto the river. It was such a nice cool down (especially in the 35c heat). Aside from whitewater rafting, we got to swim in the water, the boys and Annalie ‘rode the bull’ and I got to test my balancing skills (which were pretty good fyi) standing on the edge of the boat whilst getting spun around. To say it was quite pricey ($79), it was such an amazing experience and it definitely made me want to do it again in Tennessee!

linebreakOnce our session had finished, we headed back to camp, where I did laundry (woop), had tea and then played drinking games a la Jenga style. Steve bought us Jenga, and told us to write dares on the blocks such as ‘take a shot’, ‘shave part of your leg’ (unfortunately Dave drew the short straw on that one), ‘have a dance off’, ‘get a permanent marker tattoo’ and everybody’s favourite dare; ‘have a shot of Old Turkey whisky’ (and that was stuff was lethal!)

It was such a good night! Quite a few of us stayed up drinking until 2.30 in the morning, whilst a couple of others had some ‘tent time’ that night (ah hmm). It felt so good to relax and chill – especially knowing that we’d have a nice lie in tomorrow – a 9.30am wake-up call counts as a lie in … right?

TRAVEL – trek america’s grand trek: yellowstone & grand teton

travel - trekamerica grand trek day 12 yellowstone and grand tetonWe’ve been at Yellowstone for two days now, and have failed to spot any bears. So Steve being Steve, suggested that we get up at 5.15am to go on a bear hunt!

We drove around for about an hour with no such luck! Just as all hope was lost (we were in Bear Country after all!), we finally came across a black bear which was so cute! We were advised to stay at a distance for our own safety (hence the fuzzy photo), but it was so cool to see a bear in its natural environment – and was one to tick off the bucket list! What’s more, just as we were on our way back to camp, we spotted another bear and her little cubs – one even climbed up a tree for us!

linebreak After our bear encounter, we headed back to camp to pack up our tents, have breakfast and make our way to Jackson Hole via Grand Teton National Park. On our way out of Yellowstone, we paid a visit to Mammoth Hot Springs and Grand Prismatic. Made from a large complex of hot springs, Mammoth Hot Springs has a beautiful crystallized mineral disposition and was such an amazing thing to see! Grand Prismatic is the largest spring in the US, and is the third largest in the world. It looks like a rainbow with it majestic blue, orange, green and red colours

We then headed to Old Faithful Geyser. Unfortunately we had to wait an hour as we had just missed it going off. But after having a look around the visitors centre, picking our prime spot and playing eye spy for what seemed like forever, it finally went off. It went so high and was such an interesting thing to see!

It was then time to say goodbye to Yellowstone and head to Jackson Hole. On the way, we did a short hike of Jenny Lake in Grand Teton National Park, before heading out for pizza in Jackson. We all shared a few between us and it was nice to eat out! One pizza even had apple and pear on it, and another one had a buffalo topping!

After tea it was on to camp where by that time it had gotten dark, and as me and Polly were the only ones without a head torch, we had the to put our tent up with no light. And I have to say – we did a pretty good job! Practically experts at this camping malarkey now!

Tomorrow would be our free day in Jackson – so excited to relax a bit!
