We will be traveling from appr. 15th of April till the 15th of May this year.
We'll kick off in San Francisco and drive by car to Yosemite NP, Sequoia NP, through Death Valley NP to Las Vegas, Grand Canyon NP to Los Angeles, along the coast via Santa Barbara, along the coast (Big Sur etc) to San Francisco.
We are interested in great scenic views, nature, hiking but also in great food, wine, coffee, small funky shops (clothes, accessories etc), interior design, music (funk, jazz, indie, soul). We like small and affordable boutique (and / or design) hotels, great little restaurants and lunch rooms (preferably with 'home made' products), great bookstores etc.
Show us the good life of California! Thanks!
