5 things to do in Phoenix

So, you’re traveling to Phoenix, Arizona and you’re not sure what to do there? Well, me neither! 😀 Jokes aside, if you are an urban type of tourist, you will have to search for “things to do in Phoenix” somewhere else. But if you are somewhat like me, a nature lover and occasional shopaholic, you came to the right place. The capital of Arizona was the starting point and finish line on our USA road trip in October 2021. While searching for things to do in greater Phoenix area, I came up with the itinerary that involved a bit of everything. Here are 5 things to do in Phoenix for those who want so spend their days away from the hustle and bustle.

Flatiron hike via Siphon Draw Trail (Arizona)

What do you do if you have 2 days to spend in a city that isn’t very high on your bucket list? You try to get the most fun out of it. For us, fun means sweating in the nature and chasing views. While searching for best hikes near Phoenix I ran into several blogs that mentioned Superstition Mountains. A few trails looked interesting but the Flatiron hike via Siphon Draw seemed to offer exactly what we needed. It was described as one of top 10 hikes in Arizona, difficult, 6 mile out and back trail.

Hotel review: Moxy Phoenix Tempe (Phoenix, Arizona)

Our USA road trip in October started and finished in Phoenix, Arizona. Since we were facing a lot of hotel-changing on the road, we wanted to stay somewhere nice and comfortable for a start. Our plan was to spend the first 2 days in Phoenix and the itinerary involved some hiking and shopping. We weren’t interested in visiting downtown, hence I searched for the hotels in Tempe to be as close to our interest points as possible. When the name “Moxy” appeared in my search, the decision was instant. I love Moxy and Moxy Phoenix Tempe it was. And once again, Moxy did not disappoint.

Hiking to Kjerag and Kjeragbolten

In our South-West Norway itinerary there were 3 hikes on my bucket list and Kjerag was one of them. I could totally see myself stepping on that boulder and show the world how brave I was. Since it is located relatively close to Preikestolen we planned to do both in 2 days but ended up doing both in the same one. I still don’t know how that happened, since hiking to Kjerag is definitely not something you can just improvise. While doing Preikestolen and Kjerag in the same day shouldn’t be an issue for experienced hikers, I recommend others to take more time. If the weather cooperates, both hikes will be something you will never forget.

Intervju za “BeActive”

Pred časom so me kontaktirali iz podjetja Alpe Adria Adventurers, ki je zastopnik za blagovno znamko kvalitetnih športnih oblačil SportHG iz Španije. Na test sem prejela majici, ki sem ju izbrala glede na to, kaj je manjkalo v moji omari – torej športne T-shirt s kratkimi rokavi. V barvo, stil in mehkobo sem se zaljubila takoj, po dejanskem testu na terenu pa sem se odločila, da pristanem tudi na sodelovanje pri promociji njihove spletne trgovine BeActive. Ponudili so mi tudi kodo ANDA10, ki vam prinese 10% popusta na vse izdelke. Koda ni affiliate, znamko podpiram zato, ker so mi stesirani izdelki všeč. 😉

Adijo, ponos: SOS Vrtača

*by Aleš*

Ob spremljavi močnega vetra, enakomernega zvoka vojaškega helikopterja in delcih padajočega kamenja, k sebi držim nahrbtnik in gledam Ando, ki je nekaj metrov stran zvita v klobčič, čakajoč na rešitev. Med tem, ko občasno pogledujem navzgor, od koder se po reševalni vrvi spušča gorski reševalec, v meni vre tisoč in eno vprašanje. Danes, slab mesec kasneje, sem se odločil, da dogodek podoživim v zapisu in ga delim z vami. Delno zato, ker želim pri sebi skleniti mir, delno pa zato, da morda še komu odprem oči in ga odvrnem od poskusa, da bi se znašel v podobni situaciji. Situaciji, ki bi se prav lahko končala tragično. In nenazadnje, tudi v zahvalo reševalni ekipi in GRS Tržič.
