In six weeks I am jetting off to the west coast, to work, to chill, to drive, and to have the best 2 weeks rockin' it my way.
If you have any tips, any towns I must stop at, tell me now. It is time to start putting them into my travel journal. My simple plan is to fly into LA. Maybe hire a car from the airport, go south a little. (This is only a maybe as I could easily catch a cab into Santa Monica for a night, and then hire a car). I am going to train a lot, cruise on my skateboard, (yes it is coming), and pick my ace friend up from LAX a week later. Make our way up the coast on highway one. Stay in Santa Cruz. Hang in San Francisco. And run a half marathon 2 days before I fly home.
I am a person that loves to fit in like a local. So tell me, if you are from the US, or if you have experienced the US, where you think I would rock it. I am no tourist. So please don't suggest Disneyland. Although, I could see myself hanging out with Mickey Mouse and his friends. This trip is giving myself a pat on the back for everything I have been through in the past 5 years. This is something I need.
Tell me everything; where to eat, where to have coffee, (this one very important. I can do my research, but always nice to hear from other coffee lovers; snobs), and I do not need help with the shopping part, this one I will rock.
The images above are from my trip to Pulp Creative Paper over the weekend. The Bon Voyage travel journal by Susui Ghahremani is sweet, and cool. This is a book I will have forever, and one that I know Keely will love to have a look through when I come home. This is my gift to my little people. I think it is nice for them to see what their mum has been up to. Thank goodness for Skype, and for my new laptop.
Yes, the other book. I know, this might offend some, but I believe if you come here to read my blog, and other blogs, you will get it. You will find the funny side. I thought it was ace, and it gave me a giggle. I will still be blogging while I am rockin' the west coast. And the 'beep you and your blog' book is my backup writing space.
Frank tells me, it will happen in Monterey. Where else will it happen.
