The Grand Canyon!

As a single woman in my thirties it seemed an odd choice to go on a two week road trip across the country in a 1984 Volkswagen Vanagon with my father, my 9 year old nephew and no air conditioning.

Between seeing the sights, learning how to communicate and finding ways to bear the heat, we learned a lot about America... and ourselves.

The entire trip was documented and posted to YouTube so people could join us on the journey, but the Grand Canyon by far was our favorite leg of the trip.
