I'm getting rather excited about our upcoming trip to California. Husband and I are headed West in early May for 9 fun filled days. I've been perusing my Frommers and the internet to put together an itinerary. This is our first "empty nester" trip and I want it to go well. I'm hoping husband will enjoy himself so much, he'll be anxious to plan another journey.
I've always loved to travel. Many, many moons ago, I was a travel agent and had the opportunity to visit some wonderful spots. However for the last 20ish years or so...shit did I just write 20 years or so...yikes.....we haven't traveled too extensively save for our annual sojourns to the Keys (a semi-local destination) and Orlando. Now we find ourselves with time and funds to be able to see more...spread our wings, just the 2 of us. I'm counting the days.
Starting in San Francisco, we'll tour there and spend 3 nights, then rent a car and head down to the Monterey Penisula and Carmel for 2 nights..continue South to Hearst Castle and Santa Barbara...then end in Los Angeles for 3 nights.
I've got a 1gb memory card in my camera..and plan on snapping tons of photos..which I will undoubtedly post here at some point..I can't remember when I have been so excited about a trip...
