Time for a Get Away: California

In January 2008 (just after we found out we were pregnant with Angelia), Travis and I went on a vacation to San Diego, California. Our main reason for choosing California as our destination was to visit his brother, Jared. And there's nothing like getting a break from the cold Kansas winters to visit some place warm!

How we saved $$$:
  • Booked our flights, hotel and rental car with Price Line.
  • Spent a few nights at Jared's apartment. (Try to visit places where you have friends or family.)
  • Bought groceries and prepared some of our meals instead of eating out the entire trip.
How to make the most of your trip:
  • Plan ahead. (Ask those accompanying you for their input.)
  • Research the local attractions. 
  • Make necessary reservations prior your departure.
Key Note: the more you plan, research and prepare before your trip... the more FUN and RELAXING your trip will be!

    What we did to enjoy our time in Southern CA:
    • Hiking
    • Surfing
    • Rode beach cruisers and roller blades on the board walk
    • Spent time on the beach
    • San Diego Zoo
    • Sea World
    • Toured a public garden
    • Tried new restaurants with fresh sea food!
    • etc.
