It is with some sadness that Mr BBB and I farewell the wonderful USA today, and begin the long journey back to Australia. The last month has been a flurry of adventure and a whirlwind of gastronomical delight. From the city to the country, I really feel that we have gained a great sense of the American lifestyle, and seen a decent snapshot of several unique parts of the country. And we have loved almost every moment. I only say ‘almost every moment’ due to our cancelled flight to Vegas, and the 8 hour delay at the airport…but why focus on the negative lol 🙂 Our final ‘holiday’ day in Las Vegas (and also in the USA) was spent at a very magical place. For what better way to farewell our overseas adventure than with a tour of the Grand Canyon. First, by plane. Second, by helicopter. Flying between the huge cliffs and landing just 300 feet above the Canyon floor. And third… By foot. Where no ropes or barricades meant that we could literally walk right up to the edge! I cannot begin to describe just how magical and awe-inspiring this place is. Truly a wonder of the world indeed. And, even though it is a popular tourist destination, we were able to wander down various paths and explore the area un-guided, making us feel as if we had the place all to ourselves. I really don’t think my photos capture just how breathtaking the Canyon was, so you will just have to take my word for it. And hey, even our lunch was eaten with a view 😉 But now, it is time to farewell the sunny skies of Las Vegas, and slowly make our way back to the Canberra winter (the temperature of which, I am most certainly not looking forward to lol!) See you in a few days!
