30 July 2017

We visited the burnin' hot Death Valley National Park. Aside from the extreme temperatures I had a truly wonderful experience visiting the Park. Although you wouldn't expect it, the park is rich of fauna and flora, such as: coyotes๐Ÿบ, roadrunners, bighorn sheep๐Ÿ, scorpions๐Ÿฆ‚, spiders๐Ÿ•ท, snakes๐Ÿ and such. We only saw the roadrunners though. They are very distinguishable by their beaks, speed and their feathered tail pointing at different directions.

25 July 2017

Today we went city tripping in San Francisco. The city is filled with colorful houses ๐Ÿก as well as personalities and it is truly amazing to see that without even knowing the people. Me and the group did the whole city by an hop-on/hop-off bus ๐ŸšŒ. I really recommend to visit the city when you're down here! ๐ŸŒ‡๐ŸŒ‰๐Ÿž
After a long drive from Monterey all the way to San Francisco we made some stops. We stopped at the Lighthouse๐Ÿ—ผ at Point Reyes (that was a waste of time since it was very foggy). Then we made another stop at Muir Woods, famous for their Sequoia Trees that grow to be 300ft (+/-100m) tall, them trees made you feel very small๐ŸŒฒ. And finally we arrived at the "gate" to San Francisco, the Golden Gate bridge ๐ŸŒ‰, an amazing structure.

21 July 2017

We had our first day off, so we decided to go on a hike on the beach ๐ŸŒŠ and it was lovely ๐Ÿ˜Š. The hike resulted in many pictures of the local fauna and flora, such as: otters, various sorts of birds (honey birds, pelicans, ...), lizards ๐ŸฆŽ, rodents ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿญ and even whales ๐Ÿณ
