Sunrise Miami Beach.

During the Christmas/New Years Holiday season 2011/2012 I spent three weeks in Florida. Two of those weeks I spent in the fabulous Miami Beach. Oh how I loved it there! Amazing beaches, shopping, restaurants and nightlife. I did not want to leave!

One of my favorite moments during my two weeks in Miami Beach was when I got up one morning to enjoy the sunrise of Mimi Beach. Below are a few more photos from the morning when I enjoyed the Miami Beach Sunrise.

A Fun And Entertaining Tour Of Universal Studios In Hollywood, USA
March 4, 2013



One of the most fun things I did during my two months stay in Hollywood, USA, was to visit the very entertaining Universal Studios! It was the first time I ever set foot in such a huge film producing area so I had no idea what to expect, but I absolutely loved it! Especially the tour we went on inside Universal Studios which took us around different, some very classic, movie and TV-series sets. My sister even saw the actor Owen Wilson ride a bike right past us while we were in the tour vehicle touring our little hearts out around the area - I can't believe I missed him!

Anyway, below are some photos from our visit to Universal Studios In Hollywood back in 2006. :-)

Needless to say, we spent an entire day there. And I had fun, despite looking a bit grumpy there. Lol!

I had no idea Universal Studios was so big nor that they had so many fun things to do there, it felt like being at a Disneyworld for adults. With the tour, amusement park area, shows and shopping. We could also get free tickets to tapings of different TV-shows in Hollywood, like Jay Leno for instance - which we went to of course. All in all, I want to go there again!! Correction, I WILL go there again! :p

My Visit To The Magnificent Grand Canyon
January 22, 2013



One of the most amazing natural wonders on Earth that I have visited is the magnificent Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA. I had heard about how huge and gorgeous this place was, but was never really able to imagine how it would look in real life in my mind. So I was, to say the least, stunned with amazement when I finally got the chance to see it with my own eyes.

It was back in December of 2005 I had the opportunity to visit the Grand Canyon, because it was one of the stops on a 14 day round trip in the western USA I was on with my sister and a small group of people plus a guide. But it was not an ordinary round trip we were on though, it was a so called Trek Round Trip. Which meant that we sometimes slept in tents on camping sites, outdoors under the bare sky in our sleeping bags, in clay huts or in motels. It also meant that we mostly had to cook our own food. So it was an interesting and different experience indeed, as well as a fun way to see parts of America.

Now this Trek Round Trip departed and ended in Hollywood, California. And besides visiting the Grand Canyon on the round trip we also visited Monument Valley, a Cowboy Camp in the desert, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Alcatraz, San Diego and many more places. Needless to say, I have a lot more to share from my Trek Round Trip experience in the western USA. Which I will of course do in future posts here. :-)

But for now, below are some photos from my visit to the magnificent Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA.

There we were out on the edge enjoying the spectacular view.

The Colorado River down there.

My Visit To The Magnificent Grand Canyon
And the Grand Canyon is huge! In fact, it is 277 river miles (446 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide and a mile (1.6 km) deep.

My Visit To The Magnificent Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon achieved national park status in 1919, three years after the creation of the National Park Service. Today the Grand Canyon National Park receives almost 5 million visitors every year.

Of course we went on a little hike when we were there, and the road was quite narrow at some places.

So I am not sure I would dare to ride along those roads like these fellows did...

My Visit To The Magnificent Grand Canyon
Not the warmest of days when we visited the Grand Canyon.

My Visit To The Magnificent Grand Canyon
The oldest human artifacts found in Grand Canyon are nearly 12,000 years old and date to the Paleo-Indian period. And I must say that I think it looks like some old houses way over there.

And here I am trying to look cool and outdoorsy, I mean it was after all a Trek Round Trip we were on. Lol!
