My USA West-Coast Adventure! French Madame in Las Vegas.

Hi lovelies!

We made it to our final stop. And we're going out with a bang!
Because we're headed to Viva Las Vegas!

This was my last stop on my 2,5 week USA trip.
It was so nice after all that travelling and driving to just relax in Las Vegas.

We stayed at the Monte Carlo hotel, which I would really recommend.
We lounged by the pool, shopped a lot, and gambled of course (I did not lose any money; I'm that lucky!).

Let start:

It was such an amazing trip and I made so many great memories!
I know it's not the last time I'll be visiting California/Arizona/Nevada.

So thill next time!
Thank you for following it with me.

Much Love,

My USA West-Coast Adventure! French Madame at the Grand Canyon.

After Los Angeles, we drove through the dessert to see the Grand Canyon.
The Grand Canyon is so large, and being on a time schedule we only had time to see the South Rim of it.

Hopefully next time I get to see the North Rim as well, and visit some other national parks in Arizona.
Nevertheless, the views were spectacular!

My USA West-Coast Adventure! French Madame in LA.

Driving the immense long highway of the Pacific Coast, we made our final stop before reaching LA in Santa Barbara.

Santa Barbara has such a movie-like perfect beach, and the spirit to go with it.

Our days in Los Angeles were filled with lots of driving, surprisingly not too much traffic, and HOT weather.
We checked all the touristic landmarks.

Hollywood Sign

Hollywood Hills

I loved driving through the Hollywood hills.

After that, we hit the Hollywood Boulevard.
It was a bit too crowded for me, and pushy salesmen on the street are not for me so went to Beverly Hills.

Rodeo Drive *sighs*...

I could spend a fortune hours there...
I did not. Thankfully.

We made our way through the gorgeous neighborhoods of Beverly Hills to visit something special...
Something true Californian...

California Donuts that is!
I wrote a post about them for my other blog.

They are the bomb!

We spend a few evenings on the beach of Malibu.

And felt like kids visiting Universal Studios.

But then again, this entire trip made us feel like kids discovering new things everday.
