The King of Barbers

Traveling from Flagstaff towards Las Vegas via Seligman and Kingman on Arizona’s Route 66. A must-stop for Herbie and us is always Angel Delgadillo’s Barber Shop in downtown Kingman.

Arizona’s State Route 88

Herbie was facing some rough roads heading South from Winslow on Hwy. 99 and Hwy. 88 following Arizona’s Salt River passing Lake Roosevelt, Lake Apache and Canyon Lake. But the views were simply magnificent and Arizona’s State Route 88 is always worth a visit, even though most of it is unpaved.

Canyon de Chelly, Arizona

Feeling blessed to be back at Canyon de Chelly in the Navajo Nation in Arizona. This is one of our most favorite spots in the USA. It’s calm and relaxing and we just love the atmosphere here.

Monument Valley, Arizona/Utah

One of our must-do’s when touring the US Southwest is to travel through Monument Valley, located in the Navajo Nation. Whenever we get there, we always take some pictures at the very same spot on Hwy. 163.

And as we were heading North entering Utah and the small town of Mexican Hat, we stopped for the night at Domi’s most favorite motel in the Southwest.

Lake Powell, Arizona/Utah

Herbie probably enjoys the view as much as we do…

Grand Canyon’s North Rim

We have been many times to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and this time we finally made it to the beautiful North Rim. The views are spectacular!

Pit Stopping Herbie

Mesquite, Nevada – Always worth taking a pit stop in Nevada’s desert . Relaxing at the pool and giving Herbie a break from touring cross country.

Get Your Parts On Route 66

Kingman, Arizona – We had to get some spare parts in order to service Herbie. Almost around the corner of our motel, in fact a couple blocks down the so-called “Mother Road” (Route 66) we spotted Rod’s VW Shop.

Arizona’s Little Britain

Visiting world’s famous “London Bridge” in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. It was built in the 1830ies and formerly spanned the River Thames in London, England. It was dismantled in 1967 and relocated to Arizona. Simply fascinating!

The Love Bug’s Dates

On this road trip we went to Southern California again to buy some Medjool dates. We were lucky to get there right at harvest time, so the dates are fresh from the palmtrees. 🌴
