The Roadtrip Begins: San Diego

Well it’s been about six months (sorry about that), but I’m back! This month two of my best friends and I are taking on the West Coast and road tripping from San Diego to San Francisco and back. So stay tuned, cuz I’ll be keeping you updated with all of my food finds, awesome adventures and of course any possible Harry Styles sightings #SignOfTheTimesOutNow.

Our journey begins on Monday night when Emily and I landed in San Diego at about 8 p.m. We then found an extremely tired Rachel who had spent a cumulative 17 hours in airports trying to get to San Diego. Needless to say that Monday was not a late night!

We only had two days in San Diego, so we decided to wake up early to see as much of the city as we could. And as the most important meal of the day is breakfast (my favorite), we started off at Breakfast Republic where I had some delicious avocado and turkey Eggs Benedict.

We then made our way to the waterfront to see the marina, the USS Midway and of course to take a few photos in front of the famous “Kissing Statue.”



Next up was a waterfront park that was definitely made for 5 – 12 year-olds, buuut we couldn’t resist giving the slides a try. When I tell you that this was the coolest park I have ever seen I am not joking – I mean just look at it!

Anyway, after rock wall climbing in what was undoubtably the most awesome park ever made, we took a walk through Little Italy before heading back to the house for a siesta. What we didn’t realize was how far from home we had actually been walking, so a little walk turned into an hour-long trek home, but we got some amazing views of the city!

Later that night we drove out to a suspension bridge that made me feel like I was in Jurassic Park. It was tucked away in a residential area, so you’d never know it was there, but the (slightly swaying) bridge connected one side of the neighborhood with the other and provided amazing views of a valley filled with lush trees and gorgeous flowers. Of course I forgot to take pictures of the view, but here’s a picture of us standing on the bridge!


Next, we drove to Old Town where we had some of the best tacos I have ever had (I know I keep throwing that phrase around, but I’m not kidding).

This isn’t the best picture, but I had to show you how yummy they were! Hand-made corn tortillas and nothing but chicken, onions and cillantro. That’s how you know they’re authentic, when there’s no sour cream and cheese and whatever other stuff is usually piled on. Just the basics and it’s de-licious!

And that was Day One! After a long day and lots of great food we knocked out, ready for the adventures to come in Day Two …

    1. I am hungry for those tacos. Have fun. The state is beautiful. Make sure and stop at Nepenthe on the way to San Fran. It is on the Big Sur Drive and the view is breathtaking.
