Following on from our post yesterday, here are some more snaps from our US roadtrip. 

We left San Francisco and headed South, stopping at countless beautiful beaches and vista points on the way. 

Nothing beats driving down the central Californian coast, listening to the Beach Boys and looking out over the Pacific. 

Although we were pushed for time we tried to stop at as many interesting and beautiful places as possible, this was a favourite. 

The plant life in California was absolutely amazing. I was constantly stopping to photograph giant succulents and unusual cacti. I was in plant heaven! 

A beautiful sunset in Laguna Beach. We absolutely loved this little seaside town. 

The next and final stop of our roadtrip was Palm Springs. We stayed at The Ace Hotel and Swim Club and couldn't have imagined a better place to finish our trip. Our patio room was amazing, you did it again Ace Hotel! 

H is for hot hot hot! At 40 degrees celsius it was a little too hot for us during the day but we loved the warm evenings, sitting in our private patio, sipping cocktails and watching movies on the iPad.  

We spent one morning high up in the mountains overlooking Palm Springs. The views were stunning and it was the perfect way to escape from the heat down below. 

We spent most days drinking summery cocktails, floating around the pool and completely chilling out. It was just the perfect end to our holiday. 

We are already planning our next trip to the West Coast, there's nowhere quite like it.
