Travel Diaries – Solvang, CA

Travel Diaries

I thought I’d take a moment and look back on an older Travel Diaries, since I haven’t posted one in a while. I guess we’ve been pretty stagnant recently with Alex in grad school and student teaching, we haven’t had much free time at all to do anything! Although, we have decided to set aside time for a date night, since we really haven’t had one in quite a long time! So I’m excited for that! 
So, back to Travel Diaries! This one covers Solvang in central CA. I visited this town during spring break my junior year! It’s a little Danish town that has retained it’s look and hasn’t gone too modern. They have some amazing bakeries, antique shops, and a cute little book store as well! Of course I was going to be drawn to the book store, I mean I am a bookworm after all! 

And Travel Diaries just isn’t complete without a lame picture of me hiding in a phone booth right? I do love to take pictures with funny things that I find on vacation, and I just really loved this little phone booth. I feel like I look so different now. Junior year was quite some time ago. Oh man!

I miss California though. I really like traveling to the west coast. It’s so beautiful there. The high coastal cliffs are just breathtaking and the scenery too! This was certainly one of my favorite spring break trips from college!
