When I was ten years old my parents took us to California on holiday. I fell in love! Ever since then I have longed to return, but over the years I ended up spending time working in Florida, so I forgot how much I had loved California. Last month my lovely Husband retired and I have suggested we take a dream trip next year. Ideally I would like to fly to San Diego, then take some time travelling as far up as Santa Barbara. I think three weeks would be nice, it’s along flight from the UK, eighteen hours, so I am now enjoying planning this adventure. I’m really excited to be going back! I have been pouring over maps, looking at all the cute coastal places along the Pacific Coast Highway. We don’t want a manic trip of a different town each day, we want to take our time at the beauty spots, my thinking is that we stay four nights per area, that way we can immerse a little in the culture and people.
I definitely want to go to La Jolla, Carmel, Big Sur, Malibu, Long Beach, and Santa Barbara.
So my lovely readers, perhaps you can give me tips, suggestions and ideas, for hotels, restaurants and anything you think I should know for our dream trip!
Thanking you in advance!
