Finally realising my dream of driving up the West Coast of America… sort of. Unfortunately, due to a few setbacks with the weather in California, causing landslides along Big Sur, flooding in Santa Barbara and most of California Highway 1 to be closed; our US West Coast road trip didn’t quite get off on the right foot. But that didn’t stop us making the most of it all and still capturing some images of beautiful scenes and dramatic landscapes!

Follow our travel vlog as we capture photography from Los Angeles all the way up to Monterey via Bixby Creek Bridge in Big Sur. Starting with an easy pace in DTLA and the Arts District, before heading to West Hollywood Boulevard and Mulholland Drive for a stormy looking sunset. Followed by a day of driving up California interstate 5 through rolling hills and onto the dramatic Big Sur coastline.

Stay up to date with the rest of our road trip as we travel from Los Angeles all the way up through California, Oregon and Washington, stopping at San Francisco, Trinidad, Redwoods, Rocky Point, Portland and Seattle.

This whole trip and itinerary were planned and paid for independent of any tourism boards or businesses.

  1. Saw X100F clicked on this so quick lol

  2. The grade on these recent videos really are on point!

  3. this is my favorite drive and places!

  4. You’re such an inspiration bro, I just created a instagram account to post my pictures. Would be great if you could check out my account and critique my photos. Thanks! –Instagram: cla_shots

  5. Famous last words: “The scenery on the 5 isn’t that bad.”

  6. Main reason why I was excited to see the bridge was because I could listen to the intro for Big Little Lies whilst driving 🙃

  7. It’s July already, so how come the video’s are so much in the past ? Just asking.
    Hope Elly and you got a good time.

    1. Yeah, it’s pretty delayed. Quite simply, we did a huge amount of travel from December to April and the Japan Rail Series each took over 50 hours to edit, which pushed everything back, not to mention the difficulty finding time to edit around all the travel in the first place. We have no travel planned over the summer, so it was always the plan to focus on filming first and then stagger the release later.

  8. i remember that from GTA too

    1. Every time I go to America, I am amazed at how accurate GTA is. Throughout California especially, I feel like I’ve visited multiple times before!

  9. Hey Joe i hope you are doing fine, and thanks for another awesome, chill, wholesome video!

  10. Did get hit with the the earthquakes over the weekend and in the 4th of July

    1. Yeah, I’ve been seeing some images from them today. This was originally filmed in March though, so our travel disruptions were due to the winter storms they were having. Nature can be terrifying.
