Continuing our road trip across the Arizona desert, the sweet taste of freedom filled the air as we crossed four state lines, chasing the type of adventure you only dreamt of back home.

After picking up some classic American muscle we passed through Phoenix, desert landscapes, national parks and sleepy towns. Holbrook felt like it was from another time, a true melting pot of culture and history, and we stopped for lunch at Joe and Aggies - the local diner which has passed through generations since it opened in 1943.

Continuing through the energy vortex of Sedona, we were dreaming of our destination – Monument Valley – an iconic symbol of the American West.
Young, wild and free – Riley and Tripp embody the liberating spirit of living in the moment, unaware that these days of unbounded freedom will one day simply be remembered as perfect moments in time.

Our time in Phoenix felt like a whirlwind. We met up with new friends (Riley, Tripp and Vivian), re-stocked the cars, and took the opportunity to give the Airbnb washing machine a little work out in an attempt to start the next part of the journey slightly less dusty. To set the scene, the average daily temperature was still in the mid to high 30s. We thought we would’ve acclimatised by now but it wasn’t the case! The pure dry, desert heat didn’t even drop in the late afternoons, it was brutal!
