California Travel Log | Intro

Cities, sunshine, sights oh my!

I just got back from a family vacation in California and have stories and photos galore to share. I’m not usually the travel writer since I don’t get out of Kansas City very much, but I just can’t pass up this opportunity to spread the California love with the blogosphere. I’ve always yearned to travel after a childhood spent almost entirely in Nebraska, and finally took my first plane ride about two years ago. This trip was my third time “up in the air” and so the magic of travel is still very much there for me.

This series of posts will cover my trip day by day, and will give a good idea of a plausible itinerary for anyone planning a trip to the San Francisco area. I’ve got bazillions of photos but I’m going to try and pare them down to only the best, most representative photos for each post. I’m thinking of uploading the entirety of my pictures to Flickr and then sharing a link at the end of the series.

Here’s a little sneak peek:
