Pirmais un lielākais pārsteigums bija, kad laimējām loterijā un ieguvām iespēju apmeklēt slaveno Vilni (The Wave). Tā tiešām ir fantastikas vieta!!! Jā, loterija notiek Jūtas štatā, tomēr pats Vilnis (The Wave) atrodas Arizonā. Otrkārt apmeklējām Lielo Kanjonu un tas mūs pozitīvi pārsteidza. Dodoties uz to, nebija īsti skaidrs cik tas patiesībā ir liels, vai cik ļoti tā ir kārtējā vieta, kurai ir labs mārketings. Izrādās, tas patiešām ir liels un iespaidīgs. :) Paspējām arī pārbaudīt savas un Astrīdas iespējas, dodoties smagos pārgājienos un izbraucienos. Abos gadījumos iegūstot lielisku pieredzi un labi pavadītu laiku! :)<br /><br />[EN]<br />Arizona was a state of surprises. First and the biggest surprise was that we won the lottery and could visit The Wave. It was amazing!!! Yes, the lottery happens in Utah, but the actual Wave is in Arizona. :) Secondly we visited Grand Canyon and it blew us away. We expected something grand, but were not sure how much hype there is and how much of it actually is grand. Turns out it’s quite grand. :) Also we tested our and Astrid’s limits, taking on some difficult trails, and in both cases, it was great experience and fun times! :)<br /><br /><table align="center"

Volcanoes and Waterfalls in Ecuador

We left Salinas and drove across a high plateau toward Parque Nacional Chimborazo. In what was becoming a pattern, we were supposed to be staring straight at the Chimborazo volcano for the whole drive, but all we saw was fog, and to be fair, we also saw some llamas and vicuñas. It was still a […]
