For me North America has all the ingredients for the perfect holiday; fabulous mountain scenery, gorgeous beaches, vibrant cities, with activities ranging from skiing to white water rafting, horse riding and hiking.
One of my most memorable holidays was spent on a working ranch in Wyoming, trail riding and cattle driving everyday surrounded by the dramatic red cliffs so synonymous with this area and watching the sun set over the ranch from our porch every evening. By the end of the week I’d invested in a Stetson, cowboy boots, Wrangler jeans and felt like a genuine cowgirl!
Another incredible experience was staying at one of the floating lodges in the wilderness of the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia. On daily kayaking trips we saw grizzly bears with their cubs playing on the shoreline and in the quiet of the kayak we were able to get so close, they hardly even noticed us.
Since then I have visited Miami with its fabulous five star hotels and buzzing nightlife, San Francisco’s beautiful bays and lively restaurant scene, LA, San Diego, Las Vegas and Vancouver. My next stop is New York then hopefully another ranching holiday, but with such diversity and so much still to explore I plan to return to this part of the world for years to come.
