Shocked To See How Much Fun I Had In Southern California

My top 5 things to do:

  1. Big Sur
  2. Solvang
  3. La Jolla Cove
  4. Coronado Beach
  5. Gas Lamp District

May was shaping up to be a pretty busy month.  After the fun-filled Seattle trip (sarcasm..jk) I think Nelli felt bad so he went into full planning mode for the memorial day wknd.  We were going to be taking my first official trip to Socal and I was beyond excited.  We rented a car and started our way down to the promise land bright and early.  Our first stop was Big Sur because it’s beautiful.  We went on a mini hike and saw the ever so popular beach with the baby waterfall haha.  We stayed the night in the dutch village Solvang which was the cutest town ever.  It’s crazy that people came to the US and built towns for their community to preserve their history and thrive.  Every restaurant, shop, and bakery felt authentic for the most part and the dutch architecture was so cool.  From Solvang, we went to Santa Barbara for breakfast and finally made it into San Diego.  I couldn’t tell you how much I loved that city.  I was ready to call my temecula contacts and ask when I could start my new job.  The weather was beautiful.  We stayed in this nice hotel in Coronado which had a lovely beach and a fun street with a bunch of restaurants.  We also went to La Jolla Cove which was another favorite with pretty ocean views, artistic local vendors, and so many seals.  We saw a lot of surfers and I definitely got the surfing itch again.  We met some of Nelli’s friends and surprisingly enough, I saw 2 of my friends from college in the Gas Lamp District.  crazy.  I think we only stayed overnight in San Diego which wasn’t nearly enough time to relax and explore the city.  I hope I can visit soon 🙂
