So, the time had come for the last stage of the trip, we had planned from the start that we were going to do a stop in Hawaii on the way back to relax…. and train😊. Leaving the mainland, I was a little disappointed that we were on the Continue reading “Hawaii – Maui, Oahu and Jiu-Jitsu”
We headed back up to Los Angeles with the plans to stay around 4 days and get some more training in that we missed on our first visit.

Kobe seemed to know more about most of them than me, as he often plays with my old toys when visiting Nana and Pokka’s place. After that stop we continued Continue reading “Cowboy Country….

After our trip up along a section of the Mississippi we arrived in Dallas, Texas. Straight away the amount of pick-up trucks and cowboy hats on the highways had doubled. We stopped in at the Dallas Galleria a huge shopping mall with an Ice skating rink in the middle. Both Lilly and Kobe were pretty keen to give it a Continue reading “Everything’s bigger in…..
