Seventy Two Degrees & Always Sunny!
Many of you have asked me what I did over spring break, and for those of you were confused by the random photos I uploaded about living on the beach... Here you go! Finally a compliment of photos from my adventure in San Diego and brief description of what we were doing all the way in CA all on our own. Click on the first picture and scroll through for a slide show view.
In a traveling group of four, (my brother Esteban, good friend Zoe, and my boyfriend Brady) we flew out to San Diego for a week. We found ourselves in camping ground in South Carlsbad Beach with only two tents, a camping stove, money for groceries, our swim suits, and some sun screen. We had some wonderful family friends who lent us their surf boards and second car (which we didn't expect but were happy none-the-less). We spent the whole week walking around the coast, eating cheap (but amazing) Mexican food, talking to locals, surfing, and befriending other travels in our little camping surf community. It was a humbling yet incredible experience all the same. We were unprepared but overwhelmingly blessed in every thing that went wrong. We spent our days on the beaches or the surf boards. We spent our nights around the fireplace or in a local grocery store trying to plug in for a charge. We were robbed, stung by sting rays, poisoned by the sun, severely dehydrated, and straight broke. But we were happy, and full of life in every breathe taking view. We found ourselves in jaw dropping awe of each sunset, staggered by countless acts of kindness from complete strangers, and deeply full of every joy this earth has to offer us.
Regardless, I would not recommend traveling this way. Unless, of course you are broke college student looking for an adventure and any way to pitch a penny.
