It is time to get into some TRAVEL here on REVUE.
Last weekend I travelled in an RV with a total of 7 other members of my family to the Grand Canyon and Joshua Tree – which was an adventure to say the least.
I had never done an RV road trip before – seeing as I am the hotel or ocean kinda gal – and my bottom line sort of general consensus is this: 8 people in an RV is a little too claustrophobic, give yourself a lot of time to just hang out at your campsites since driving isn’t the most smoothest of rides, the Southern California desert remains one of my favorite views, the Grand Canyon is quite the trench, seeing jumbo-sized cacti makes me really happy, and sleeping in a tent with your fiancé and puppy in quiet Joshua Tree with a view of a cascading mountain is as best as it gets.
So if you are a fan of the desert: YES to Joshua Tree, MAYBE to Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is just one of those places that everyone “has” to see because it is a natural wonder of the world but that doesn’t mean it is for everyone. Additionally, there is nothing to do around the Grand Canyon once you have seen the sights. Don’t get me wrong – it is an incomprehensible view with a natural wonder that is beyond human creation. However I preferred the flat landscape of Joshua Tree to the plunging dips of the Grand Canyon (I am also deathly afraid of heights, so there is that).
Hope you enjoy the video’s aesthetic look into the landscapes, views, and desert roads my eyes flirted with all weekend.
