And then, unexpectedly, you happen to fly aboard a six-seater propeller aircraft and watch Los Angeles turning miniature, while the emotions of adventure – in the most authentic sense of the word – envelop you. As you read the first pages of your book, the world you are skimming over becomes an elusive palette – from pink to brick-red. You gaze at the clouds and canyons…

Briar Patch Inn

Briar Patch Inn

Arizona, USA

These cabins nestled along a quiet river totally blend in the leafy surrounding. Owl, Robin and Eagle. In the early afternoon, when the sun hides behind the red mountains, the buildings are left in the shade and the air gets chilly just like in the mountains. You have wood to burn in your small fireplace. Outside, two resident sheep graze within a small fence. In the early morning, an abundant bio breakfast is served in the common cabin, this also made of wood, among low voices and by a cracking fire. If in Sedona everything holds a sense of spirituality, it’s slow and infused of new age philosophy, this inn is a totally peaceful elegant retreat (Wi-Fi is only available in the main cabin). A much more special and less rustic place than what you would expect from the website.

Food doesn’t get any more honest than this. The intention of the family that manages this eatery (also take away and mini market) is: “ChocolaTree is a Sanctuary where each Being can nurture their Authenticity”. The atmosphere is new age and each plate is a tasty combination of healthy ingredients, 100% organic and 100% homemade. Green Goddess Salad, Mediterrean Wrap, Veggie Burger, Kale Quinoa are only some of the Raw Cooked Deliciousness. The big rear garden hosts a food garden and a hammock. This is “superfood” in an oasis of peace, happiness and trust in humankind.

The Grand Canyon National Park is a quiet and majestic land. When you look at it, you perceive it as something separate from you. You are not a rock, a raptor, the wind or the Colorado River. And then, the wonder begins. After you’ve gone past the panoramic E Rim Drive, at the park exit, the 89 cuts the road in two and forces you to a choice: on the left for the Monument Valley; on the right to Flagstaff to close the circle that takes you back to Los Angeles. The last kilometres on the 64 and a small deviation on the left hand side, right on the 89 lead you towards the village of Cameron and offer an utterly unexpected emotion…
