Well what can I say.. the start of a new adventure. The first time on my own in over 15 years, I couldn’t believe it when I realised it, so what way to celebrate than getting a van and going on a solo trip to the desert. What a trip it was. So much incredible footage that I am excited to share with you.

In this video we start in NYC and fly to Seattle and then road trip to Bonneville Salt Flats with the most epic van around!… Wow – what incredible scenery along the way, the sunsets and sunrises – wow! It is the most phenomenal thing to be able to pull up anywhere and just allow yourself to be. So much time to sit and contemplate life. A very necessary thing, not just for me but for us all.

I know you all be asking where I got this incredible van, give Escape a call, I honestly can’t recommend them enough, so great to deal with and the van, well that speaks for itself 😀

    What a courage and, as always, what an enthousiasm !
    A beautiful show you’ve got here, so nice documented ( and hey, your own cup :-)) ),
    I know, this was a great pleasure for you…..

    In the Netherlands, we have our famous photographer Robin De Puy who’s having her documentary "Ik Ben Het Allemaal Zelf"
    ( translated "It’s All Me" ). She made a roadtrip by motor through the USA and this is so beautiful, I only do not know if it can be seen
    in english but if you have a change, come and watch it, I know, you will like it :-))

    Melissa – my wife and I just got back from London and appreciated all your great views of the city when planning the trip. Video of the trip is on my channel. If you make it to SF in your travels, I’ll be happy to return the favor – buy you a cup of coffee at the Ferry Bldg and take you on a 10 mile photo hike around central SF on a Sat or Sun…safe travels!
