I know this post is long overdue, but ever since I got back I have been just catching up on work from events, to blog posts, and even planning casual lunch dates with friends. I have been keeping busy lately and wanted to make sure all those things came first before I sat down and write this post.
As you guys know a few weeks ago I took a spontaneous road trip with my best friend Steven. We came up with a thought that we both wanted to getaway for a few days and just explore another city. Since it was quite last minute we couldn’t actually plan an entire trip without paying an arm and a leg for it so we decided to take a road trip up to the Bay. I’ve driven a few times up to San Francisco myself, but for Steven it was his first time. We decided to put our idea into action and immediately booked am airbnb that same night and left for our trip the following week.
The trip wasn’t very well planned out. We both have a list of things we wanted to do, so we decided to agree on 5-10 places and build our itinerary around that area. Here is a recap of our trip! I will include where each location is and hopefully this will give you guys ideas on where to go next time your in San Francisco.
The first stop we made was Hearst Castle. Its one of the most visited places near San Luis Obispo and believe it or not but I’ve never heard of it. My friend has been wanting to come here for quite some time now so we decided to reserve 2 tickets so he’s able to check this off his list. He’s really into museums and exhibits so I did what every good friend would do and happily went with him (since he told me I would get good photos from here). I think I’m too easily convinced LOLS.
The castle was a beautiful place and I did learn some interesting facts about the owner and all the crazy parties he hosted there. It was a really good experience and since we were on a tour I was only able to get a few photos in. The weather wasn’t in the best condition that day so most of my photos were due to cloudy conditions.
