Hi Liddy. Thanks for your email. Yes, we had a great holiday, everything went really smoothly. The boys liked the hotel with the pool tables and games. The motel in Santa Barbara was good, great location, breakfast, and a nice area for sitting out. We are still hopeful for Japan at some point in the future so I’m sure we will come back to you for that.

Thank you so much Helene for all your help with planning and excellent route ideas and tips, and really appreciated the benefit of your firsthand experience. San Francisco was fabulous. We loved the hot air balloon ride and cycling in the Napa Valley, and the great hotel there. South Fork rafting was amazing. It was well worth the flight to Vegas and the trip to Zion National Park and Bryce. It was blistering hot but we loved it. Great idea to visit the north rim of the Grand Canyon rather than the South Rim as it was much quieter. We enjoyed the mule ride and gentle walks but it is v high (2700m) so altitude does affect energy levels. Antelope Canyon and Lake Powell was an incredible day trip too. Top tip – stop at Subways for lunches. Healthy build your own options, reasonable prices and quick as lots of driving to do. Download audiobooks ahead of time. Kids had no time for electronics which was a good thing. (US citizenship allowed this summer trip despite restrictions)

We weren’t sure that the kids would ever forgive us for giving the Florida theme parks a miss, but we’ve had such an AMAZING trip that they never even mentioned it! It was such an adventure and we feel like we’ve done so much, but also realise how much more there is to do! We loved San Francisco and Yosemite, although both were quite busy.

Sequoia was really special and much quieter than Yosemite – we really recommend this to other travellers. However, our favourite was Sedona with the incredible red sandstone rock formations. We did a full day hike here which the kids were not looking forward to but it was fab. Amazing scenery, cacti, stunning views etc. We packed a huge amount of food which kept them going and it ended up being a real highlight.

Thanks so much for your help with the planning. Next year we’re thinking coastal California!
