Travelling is often a fierce and unwavering passion for some. They enjoy the thrill of seeing a new location, visiting a different country, or indulging in a new culture. Some people have a bucket list that they like to tick off as and when they visit one of those dream destinations. A bucket list is a pretty common thing to have these days, filled not only with travel ideas but also any experience, from eating in a Michelin starred restaurant through to swimming with dolphins. However, if we are honest, many bucket lists can be quite generic and it seems that people are lacking imagination when it comes to devising their own.
There’s often great misconceptions about the US when it comes to visitors from other parts of the world. We’re so clued into their TV, their movies, even their news and politics that we think we know everything we need to and will fit in like a hand into a glove once we arrive. Yet when people visit, they often feel woefully out of the loop and realise that there’s SO much more to the states than what we see on MTV or Sky News. Before you go, there are a few things you need to remember that will definitely help you acclimatise.
I feel like these things always happen to me.
You’ll hear about how the jeep broke down further on in this post, but it was actually a blessing in disguise!
The size, weight and amount of luggage you can take on a plane with you can be a bit confusing at times. Different airlines have different limits and its often easy to forget which airlines allow what.
Want a short and relatively easy hike with epic scenic rewards that are rare to find anywhere else?
Of course you do, and Devils Bridge in Sedona is just the trick!
As one of the main attractions in the area, Devils Bridge has built a reputation as one of the best scenic spots that come with some great photo opportunities. The Bridge is a red rock arch that has been eroded over millions of years by wind and weather.
The bridge looks like its going to collapse at any second due to all the cracks. However, I’ve been told it’ll be there for a few thousand years to come. Lets hope they’re right!
I’ve really fallen in love with the USA over the last couple of years.
Spending two summers working at a summer camp in Maine and subsequently meeting my girlfriend there have made it a home from home and given the country a special place in my heart.
I now hop across the pond whenever I can to see Annie, and today I am lucky enough to be doing just that!
Pima Canyon is situated in the Santa Catalina mountains in Tucson, Arizona.
The hike is 3.9 miles and rated as moderate difficulty. The hike offers great views over Tuscon, a somewhat forested section that you wouldn’t expect to find in Arizona and some great wildlife including; Javelina, birds and mountain goats.
