Joshua Tree was one of my favourite stops on our recent USA road trip. It was so nice to have a break from city life and spend a few days in what felt like, the middle of nowhere…

We had some amazing accommodation whilst in Joshua Tree and believe it or not, these pictures were taken just next to where we were staying. I love California and have traveled around a lot of different areas, but this was my first time visiting this beautiful place. 

When we were planning our six-week road trip around the states it became apparent that we would be traveling from city to city straight after one another. Before Joshua Tree we had been to New York, Chicago, Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans. We thought it would be good to schedule ourselves in a bit of down time, almost like a check point, for us to chill out and recharge our batteries. 

It was a great idea and we had two whole days with no agenda, no public transport, no restaurants and a shit tone of sunshine and natural beauty. 

It also meant that I was able to whack on my bikini for the first time during the trip. It was so nice to be able to chill in the sunshine, get a bit of a tan and read my book with some amazing iced coffee. I literally never wanted to leave! 

I took with me my trusty ladybird bikini from Debenhams, which I bought just before our autumnal week away in Cyprus last October. I teamed it up with my New York white t-shirt from Primark, which turned out to be such a good buy! It was £5 and I wore it so much during our trip as it is such a versatile piece. I literally wore it for meals out, day trips and in Joshua Tree, as a bikini cover up! 

The views were truly incredible during our stay, and I would absolutely love to go back. These photographs were taken on our first day surrounded by, what we felt, was the most beautiful scenery. It wasn’t until our second day however, when we spent One Fine Day In Joshua Tree National Park, that we were completely blown away. 

It was a beautiful few days but it is definitely staying on my travel wish list, as I would love to go back and explore it some more…
