I’m a bit behind on travel posts but leave for NYC today so it’s time to wrap up our time in California. We spent a weekend in wine country and a day in San Francisco before driving through Big Sur where we stayed in a yurt before heading down to Santa Barbara and eventually, to Los Angeles.


Road Trip: Big Sur and Santa Barbara


I may be from LA but this was my first time in Big Sur, and guys, it was beautiful. Driving down the coast makes me feel so connected to my California roots and almost makes me want to move back. Almost. We stopped at Pfeiffer beach before finally making it to Treebones Resort as the sun went down. Staying in the yurt was as close as I’ll get to camping–it was so quaint and nature-y. And the views were breathtaking.

Santa Barbara

We planned on meeting one of my oldest friends in Santa Barbara for lunch and spent the rest of the day and evening with her and her family, so unfortunately, there wasn’t much more time to explore Big Sur. Three hours later, we were walking down State street in sunny Santa Barbara with my friend Jess. I actually lived in Santa Barbara for my last 2 years of college (go Gauchos!), and it’s always so nice going back. Our time was short but sweet–lunch at the SB Public Market, some time with Jess’ 3 kids, anddinner at The Lark.
