San Francisco

San Francisco is one of my favourite US cities not least because I always seem to be able to find affordable air fares so use it as a hub before flying on usually to Los Angeles.

Check out this gallery to see the Golden Gate Bride, Alcatraz, Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39 and Downton San Francisco.


Virgin Atlantic

Virgin Atlantic Airways have been my airline of choice across the Atlantic since I started flying Transatlantic in 1994. It is very rare for me to travel in their Upper Class cabin, but when I do, I get to enjoy their fabulous Clubhouse in Terminal 3 at London Heathrow Airport.

This gallery showcases pictures taken on a recent Upper Class flight to San Francisco.

Palm Springs

Palm Springs is a little under two hours from Los Angeles and has a great downtown area with plenty of places to eat and drink. There’s plenty to see and do in the area and when I wasn’t soaking up the sunshine, I took day trips to the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and the Joshua Tree National Park.

This gallery features the sights and sounds on downtown Palm Springs.
