Traveling USA: the Palm Springs times

At the start of 2017 we took a month-long trip to the United States: part business, part (lots of) fun. I'm going to share some of the wonderful things we saw and did. We went to some great places: Southern California, Memphis and New Orleans among them.

One of the first places we stopped for adventure and a healthy dose of inspiration was the truly wonderful Palm Springs in California. We absolutely loved the place and I felt a bit like I'd died and gone to kitsch heaven!

Here are just some of the things we saw and did (including a photo of me almost getting blown away on a freezing cold mountain and having a great time anyway). Read on below for more details of our trip.

We spent several days exploring the perfect mid-century modern architecture, extensively sampling the local tiki bars, visiting nearby desert (including Joshua Tree National Park) and we even took a trip up to visit the fairly huge amount of snow sitting on the mountains surrounding us.

The landscape surrounding the city is amazing and beautiful - and very different to what we're used to in Australia. Plus the things to do and see in Palm Springs itself are so much fun.

It's a highly recommended destination and I can't wait to get back there again.
