Day 13; From Sedona through the Phoenix desert and flying back to San Francisco

Anthony Bourdain:

“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.”

Sedona to Phoenix is a two hours drive, most of which is through desert terrain. To a Norwegian that is a strange and unusual landscape, full of beauty and very, very hot!


It's a dry, arid and beautiful landscape

Returning the rental car at Phoenix Airport and getting on the plane to take us back to San Francisco went without any problems. That’s what we’ve come to exåect in USA, everything works to perfection, there are few, if any, of the incenveinances that wee’re used to from Europe or anywhere else in the world. I can think of no other country where being a tourist is less problematic.

Back in SF, the SuperShuttle picked us up right on schedule, as always, and took us to The Courtyard by Mariott right on the Fishermans Wharf .

Tomorrow we’ll explore both The Wharf and Alcatraz Island
