California, Here We Come


August 15, 2014

Earlier this week we made somewhat of a spur of the moment decision…we’re going to California this fall! I signed up for Ben Sasso’s Foster Workshop held north of LA. The very next day we decided, hey, if I’m already going to be out there, and we’re paying for my airfare anyway, let’s just make a vacation out of it! So we also decided John would fly out to meet me after the workshop wraps up and spend three and a half days exploring together. This is very big for us because we tend to be somewhat wishful travelers…meaning we love the idea of traveling and exploring and there are lots of places we’d like to go, but we let life get in between us and our dreams of having adventures a little more often than we’d like. Earlier this year we had talked about going to California after wedding season wrapped up and ended up shelving the idea in favor of saving $$$ and using some of the leftover funds to visit my sister when she moves to Florida in the fall. So it was almost serendipitous that this workshop 1. Fell at a time when I could actually go. And 2. Worked out for us to both be able to see California together even just for a few days.  We are both thrilled, and incredibly excited! We’ve only been on one other big trip in the entire almost 7 years we’ve been together!

This is our first time to the west coast other than going to Vegas and we are so pumped! I personally am super thrilled at the thought of seeing the Pacific Ocean and watching a real sunset. John really wants to visit Muscle Beach. Other than that and eating lots of In N Out Burger, we’re still not sure what to do in LA! So we need your help! Any suggestions on food, parts of town to stay in (or avoid), things to do, etc are welcome!
