One of the nice things about San Francisco is that you can take many day trips outside the city that are only an hour or two drive away. And since San Francisco is getting more crowded by the day, you’ll welcome the opportunity to get out of town for some fresh air and wide open spaces.
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.
The year 2015 has gone by so fast but I say that about every year. My travels this year, whether for work or play, have all been great and there have been a few milestones too that have meant a lot to me. Also, it’s a personal goal of mine to visit at least one new place every year, whether near or far, and I am happy to say that I met that goal and then some. Here’s a look back at my year of travels. It’s so nice to see everything that has happened and I’m already looking forward to more adventures in 2016.
