California it is! As much as I adore international travel, a lengthy California trip has been on my list for a bit. For the price us east coasters have to pay to fly over to the west, I knew we had to make the trip worth it. No sense in staying in one place with all the great spots decorating the coast of Cali.
[On the docket!]
We're renting a car and exploring the coast and best cities in California. While we're still ironing out the details, but these are the basics of what our trip may look like.
First stop - San Francisco! I'm really hoping to be able to meet up with Claire and Claire during our few days in San Fran! From here we'll rent our car and journey to wine country. We may get to check out the Sierra Nevada brewery up in Chico, then head down to south.
We'll head from Santa Barbara (where I might even get to run into Punky!) or other coastal destination to San Diego. It's possible we'll make a brief stop in Los Angeles, but neither D nor myself have a huge desire to visit. Plus we're flying out of LAX at the end of our trip. I'm hoping that somewhere between San Diego and Los Angeles that we can meet up with Carrie at The Corner in Huntington Beach.
Then there is San Diego. D hasn't been there before so it is going to be all about exploration. Since I'm sure we'll be hitting up lots of cool restaurants and bars, I'm hoping to grab at least one drink with Olivia, Ashley, Tammy, and maybe even Robin!
We're jetting out June 18th, and I'm counting down the days. It's the perfect way for me to kick off my short summer! I'm really lucky I get to take this west coast road trip with D!
