My two best friends and I recently went on a quick escape out of the city to Monterey and it was the perfect weekend trip! Monterey is only a two-hour drive south of San Francisco but can seem worlds away with its quiet streets, trails, and beaches and local restaurants, cafes, and shops.
One thing I can’t live without is a good book. I always read before bed or on my commute to work and I would go absolutely crazy if I got on a plane without a book, whether it’s a one-hour or twelve-hour flight
I’ve been a lucky girl the last few years to attend the Bologna Book Fair for work. The university town is famous for its food and its gelato in particular is drool-worthy. I always make time before or after the day’s work to get a scoop or two or three so here are the shops I’ve been to that I’ve enjoyed.
