Smack dab in the middle of October, the manfriend and I took a 10-day trip to California. It was not the smartest decision I have ever made. I was busy with fall semester ( a very tough semester ) and had just made the jump to freelancing after my full-time job ended in September. Money was iffy, school projects were really iffy, and perhaps most notably, my sanity was past iffy.
But that’s the thing about vacations – you just gotta go. You gotta go when you’re feeling your most frazzled, because that is precisely when you need it most. So I said the hell with it, and we ventured down the PCH from San Francisco to Los Angeles, with stops in Napa Valley, Capitola, Big Sur and Butano State Park in between. Coincidentally, the only photos I took were from my favorite places: Napa, Big Sur + Butano ( where we camped under the sleepy giant redwoods ).
As you can probably see from my photos, it didn’t suck. Not one bit. The first day of vacation, I was wine drunk by 11am. Photo proof right here.
So yeah, like I said vacation…you just gotta go.
