Travel Journal – California

I hadn’t been to California before so narrowing down where we were going to travel to was a bit of a challenge. We decided our top priority was collecting sea glass at Arroyo Burro Beach County Park in Santa Barbara. From there we decided on a mini road trip – fly into LA, drive the Pacific Coast Highway to Santa Barbara for a couple days, then drive back down to Santa Monica to see the Route 66 trail ends sign, and spend a day in LA before heading back to Chicago. Everything we saw I documented when I got home in a travel journal.

This whirlwind trip went by too fast. I’m looking forward to going back to California one day to visit the Getty Museum and some national parks.

Watch the video below for a flip through of this Californian adventure.

This was a fun trip to document. We did so much in a such a short time!
