These cold days make me think of last summer. If you want to combine shopping, nature, beaches, culture, nightlife and lots of food, then San Diego is a place you sure have to put on your to-do-list! My multicultural family with lots of different nationalities gives me an easier way to travel the world and San Diego was 1 of those places. My first far-away trip with my boyfriend and it was a-mazing :-)!
We literally took a whole day for the San Diego Zoo and it was something memorable. It's like you're walking in a jungle. So many different plants, animals, herbs and even vegetables and fruits. The park was so big you could go by bus but we sporty ones did it by walk and it was about 43°, yup gallons of water! And I had the pleasure of having my private biologist with me ;-).
Americans love to eat
We avoided as much as we could the typical "all-you-can-eat" places, because the one time we did try it, my tummy didn't agree with it... But they do have a lot of nice restaurants over there! The thing is: you have the cheap ass all-you-can-eat bars and then you have the véry chique places. The prices were actually the same as in Belgium, only tipping was a big part of the check. We didn't eat sweet stuff but I took a lot of pictures of them, it's just so damn pretteeehhh!
Spicy all the way
Also visited Old Town. Lots of Mexican bars, restaurants and the history of San Diego. Even Mexican dancers performing in a kind of patio while you can enjoy a Margarita. BUT then we found this little shop full of SPICY SAUCES! People who know us: we love our food spicy; the more, the better. Our friends always laugh by the sound of "ugh, this isn't spicy enough, right?". Of course we bought a couple of bottles from here ;-).
The city of Angels
Visiting LA & Hollywood was also a nice experience but it was réally tourist-minded so it was nice to see everything but I wouldn't go there again. But I did pass Rodeo Drive and thàt was HEAVEN! Chanel, Michael Kors, Givenchy,... When I'm earning the big bucks, I'll get my Chanel bag, haha!
Let's go to the beach
2 summers ago we went surfing in Spain with a bunch of friends but the surfing in the Golden State, woaaaah! First snorkeling and saw yellow sharks just a couple of inches from us. They're not dangerous, I think? I'm not sure if it's the right name, I should confirm with my biologist. I only remembered the word "shark" that made me hyper! After that we went surfing in the afternoon. I'm a little girl and those waves were biiiiig.
Let's dance into the night
Thanks to my cousin we enjoyed also some unexpected VIP-treatment, which was awesome. Last party of the year next to the beach, lovely cocktails, a sunset as a view and great music. It says it all...
Culture & Landscapes
We actually didn't know that there were so many nice places to visit. The picture above is at Blacks Beach, it's a dangerous place in terms of surfing and stuff but an amazing sight.
The last night with fireworks and a romantic view!
