Flashback: Californication

I miss California. It has been five years since my last visit! I have started a checklist for 2013 of all the places I want to visit and re-visit as part of my big 30th year, and Cali is definitely up there. I have family who  resides in L.A. and that always gives me a good excuse to jet off.

San Francisco

I loved San Francisco even though it was raining and cold when I visited.

Gotta love those seals!

San Francisco wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t get to see the Golden Gate!

the Golden gate bridge!

And of course, one of my favorites was Beverly Hills! Yes, and every time I walk the streets the 90210 theme song secretly plays inside my head.

The closest I will ever get to these stars. Unfortunately, I was unable to take a photo of the infamous HOLLYWOOD sign much to my chagrin. Guess that’s reason enough to come back!

On this particular visit, I went on a looong road trip from San Francisco down to Vegas! A memorable and fun trip that deserves another flashback post! On that note, let’s play a guessing game. 🙂 Here is a photo from one of the places I stopped by during the road trip. If you have ever been to this area, you would know this!

Let me know what and where this was! 🙂
