Napa Valley

There is only one campsite in Napa Valley so that made picking our site easier – we were at Bothe Napa Valley and were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful surroundings and peaceful atmosphere. It just so happened to be Halloween when we were there, and we were excited to see what kind of festivities the area had to offer. One of the main events we had heard about was a floating pumpkin display, but unfortunately it ended up being a bit underwhelming.

Despite the disappointing pumpkin display, the rest of our trip more than made up for it. On the morning of our wine-tasting tour, Laura cooked up a delicious Shakshuka to line our stomachs before we set off. As a big fan of wine, Laura was especially excited to try out the various vineyards in the area.

Our first stop was the Castillo di Amaroso, an Italian castle with a drawbridge entrance. It was raining heavily that day, but the beauty of the castle and the excitement of the wine tasting more than made up for it. It felt like a Disney Land for wine drinkers, with the added bonus of being able to taste some of the best wines in the region.

The second vineyard we visited was Madrigal, a family-run vineyard with a charming outdoor seating area. We were lucky enough to be able to sit outside and enjoy the sun, as well as some of the most delicious wines we’ve ever had. As a special treat, the vineyard gifted us with two bottles of wine that usually cost around £100 each, which was a truly generous gesture.

We were then headed towards the coast and made a quick stop at Muir Woods to see the giant redwood trees. It was a beautiful and peaceful place, and we were in awe of the towering trees that seemed to stretch up towards the sky. We walked around the park, taking in the sights and sounds of the forest and enjoying the serene atmosphere before reaching San Francisco
