For a few months now, we have been itching to take a trip to southern California. With work and other commitments, we always found a reason to put the trip off, but finally last week, we decided to just go! So early Saturday morning, we loaded up the car, stopped for some coffee and tea, and hit the road for San Diego! The five hour drive was half the fun! It was nice to have some alone time, singing along to some of our favorite songs and chatting about the most random things. We found ourselves in some pretty funny conversations over those hours, laughing way too hard, reminiscing about “old times”, and pulling over to snap a few photos along the way.
We tried to cram in as much San Diego as we possibly could. We filled those two and half days with a ton of amazing food, coffee shops and boutiques! We even squeezed in an afternoon at the San Diego Zoo and some time in La Jolla by the water. Oh, and some pizza in Little Italy, which was definitely the closest thing to “NY style pizza” we’ve experienced since living out west! San Diego is definitely one of the most beautiful places we’ve been to. Although we’re not really beach people, there’s something about the fresh, crisp air that rolls off the ocean and we couldn’t get enough if it. It felt so good to just be able to walk hand in hand down the streets and explore the city together. It was a much needed getaway in what has felt like a crazy start to the new year.
Thank you so much to everyone who offered us recommendations, via instagram, on places to eat and visit! We checked out so many of them and now have some favorites to go back to on our next trip to California!
