US and Canada Coast to Coast Road Trip Adventure with Tesla Model 3

 

So we tried the Model 3 this summer; round trip coast to coast. It was our first time  using a full electric car so planning required more effort and considerations.

We had a general idea as to where we wanted to go, but we dealt with the little details of our  route on an everyday basis. We booked our accommodations the day before or the day itself.

We left Los Angeles around 9 am, arrived at Barstow, CA to supercharge and had lunch. Late afternoon was spent exploring the historic downtown of Flagstaff, Arizona. We enjoyed the shops, street art, performers and the  laid back vibe of the city.

Two Days in Ireland

Ireland was an afterthought; but when I realized that the plane fare  from England was very affordable, I took the chance so I can visit my favorite childhood playmate and cousin whom I haven’t seen for 18 years. I didn’t have a lot of expectations, but I felt that Ireland was familiar.  My favorite priest in my school age years was Irish and I grew up loving the music of U2, the Cranberries and the Corrs. I remember singing my heart out to Cranberries’ Zombie during my early teen age years.  Two days is not enough to form an opinion, but  I think Ireland is unpretentious, raw, bruised but innately strong. I would love to come back and explore some more.

Sunny Days in England (day 4)

The Cotswolds is the  second largest area of protected landscape in England. Honey colored houses, verdant rolling hills, narrow roads and endless rows of yellow goodness; thanks to the rapeseed plant and a magnificent estate which made real the stuff written about english countryside and nobility in my favorite regency romance novels- that pretty much sum up  why  I love England. While it’s only a brief glimpse and experience of the countryside; it’s enough to make me want to come back for more.
