Checklist valise États-Unis : Qu’emporter en roadtrip ?

On me demande souvent ce que j'ai emporté lors de notre roadtrip sur la Côte Ouest. D'habitude je blinde toujours ma valise de trucs que je ne mets pas (et que je ramène tout froissé)... Mais cette année, j'ai utilisé tout ce que j'avais apporté et rien ne m'a manqué. Assez cool, alors je vous partage ma petite liste !…

Los Angeles en mode YOLO

Le pitch : en gros on a fait nos gros kékos. Los Angeles, plage, soleil... bouchons ! Après nos pérégrinations en zones désertiques, rouler sur des autoroutes à 14 voies (7 d'un côté, 7 de l'autre) fut comme plonger dans un métro parisien à heure de pointe armé d'un carton à dessin format raisin (toi-même tu sais !). David a…

L’Amérique en Airstream !

Le pitch : en gros on a bu des bières chez des gens sympas et on a dormi dans une Airstream. Vous connaissez sans doute la Napa Valley, mais la Temecula Valley ? On avoue, nous non plus. Ce fut d'autant plus surprenant de nous retrouver au milieu de vertes collines vallonnées si proche du désert de Mojave. Cette région…
Dormir à Joshua Tree

Dormir dans le désert de Joshua Tree

Le pitch : en gros on a dormi chez des hippies et on a vu des cailloux rigolos. Joshua Tree fait partie des endroits qui m'apaisent. Peut-être est-ce le désert, la chaleur, peut-être est-ce les vastes étendues de roches, les arbres de Josué ou bien encore les étoiles que l'on voient comme nul part ailleurs. Il y a certainement un…

Grand Canyon et route 66

Le pitch : en gros on se la raconte un peu sur la route 66. Nous vous avons laissé en territoire Navajos. Aujourd'hui, nous partons pour le Grand Canyon ! Départ de Monument Valley vers 11h, donc assez tard...Mais le besoin de dormir était le plus fort ! La chaleur, la route, l'enchainement des parcs sans prendre réellement le temps…
