Travel Diaries: San Luis Obispo – California

Travel Diaries

I thought it’d be nice to take a gander back at one of my favorite vacations ever, and that vacation was to central California. I went to a bunch of interesting places! The city I stayed in  was Cambria, which is a lovely little town and I’d LOVE to go back there someday! 
This travel diaries is going to look at San Luis Obispo (also called SLO), a quaint little town with a killer farmer’s market that takes over the town’s main street once a week! They have stalls, music, food, and shopping galore. SLO has a major college in town, which is has a really nice campus. Man, I would have loved to go to school in California. I guess I could still go to grad school if I really felt the urge! 

Isn’t this gum wall awesome yet kinda gross at the same time? I stuck a piece on here too. I couldn’t help myself!

Also, look at this guy! Lord of the Cello! He is wearing a golden chest plate!!

I really loved SLO and the farmer’s market was so amazing! It was jammed, we waited in line for about 45 minutes to get ribs, but it was all worth it! Such an awesome trip!

  • I used to live in a town where the Saturday market took over the entire downtown and it was amazing! I loved meeting all the farmers, the musicians and having that community spirit. That gum wall really is cool and gross at the same time

  • That's awesome!! I love huge markets like that, I think it's great for a local community and gives small businesses a chance to shine!

  • This place looks awesome! That gum wall though… don't know if it's gross or cool… lol maybe a little of both 😀


  • That gum wall is awesome, but at the same time it makes me cringe to think of all that having been in people's mouths haha. I've had a very strong urge to go to a farmer's market all summer, and still haven't!

  • Looks like you've had a really awesome trip! That farmers market looks amazing! I'm honestly a little grossed out by the gum wall, but at the same time I find it kinda cool. I'm conflicted, haha!

  • It was cool and gross at the same time! ahahah!

  • If you have a local farmers market you should totally give it a go! I love going to farmers markets, they are so great and you always get great produce!

  • It's a conflicting wall! It's so cool, but then it's so gross, but so awesome, but totally gross too! Ah! I walked down the alley but I was freaked out that I'd bump against the wall or something haha!

    I didn't realize there was a gum wall in San Luis Obispo! I knew there was one in Seattle!
