9 Days California Road Trip Itinerary

Today marks 2 years since the day I set foot in California.

12 Fun Things I Did in Los Angeles

California was high on my travel wishlist, probably because of all the films and series I’ve watched that take place there. Well I grew up watching Beverly Hills 90210 (the original one not the remake) after all! And then there is San Francisco and Golden Gate bridge and not to mention Pacific Coast Highway 1, which I discovered through blogs and Pinterest (the latter one is definitely a “thing” nowadays for travel planning along with Instagram). Today I’m really proud and excited to say that I’ve been there and done that and I really really liked the experience! I have…
