Epic Big Sur Road Trip

 

One of the many reasons why I love what I do is that I'm able to go on adventures in the name of finding jewelry components.  My most recent road trip turned out to be the most epic of them all.  Below, I share our journey day by day, and honestly, I don't think we could have planned a more fun and easy trip.  I wanted to share our adventures in hopes that they will inspire many more! 

 

Day 1

We woke up at an ungodly hour in NYC to catch our flight to LAX.  When we landed at noon, we were definitely in the mood for a big lunch, so we stopped by Bossa Nova. The vegetarian plantain sandwich made me really happy. 

Next we picked up our rental car at Enterprise on Sunset Blvd. Our fuel efficient car was only 149$ for the full week!  A welcome change for someone who is used to insane NYC car rental costs. 

From there, we booked it up the coast to Santa Barbara, barely making it in time to do some thrifting at United Thrift and Alpha Thrift Store.  Unfortunately we didn't find much there, but the rest of the trip would definitely make up for that.  We walked around the cute downtown and then found a beach to watch the last bits of the sunset.
