My two-week adventure down the coast of California led me to my final destination with a few more people to visit and some delicious food to eat. I arrived Sunday night, after another fun Greyhound bus ride and thankfully had a friend that was willing to pick me up from the station. Jared, one of my friends from High School who now lives in Washington DC happened to be in San Diego so it was only natural we take the opportunity to catch up. Unfortunately, our schedules didn't coincide all that well as he was leaving early the next morning, but we still took the opportunity to chat about life, eat some ice cream and bitch about people (all of which we excel at).
To round out my visit to California I still had to tackle two of the bigger cities, Los Angeles and San Diego, both of which held friends and family to whom I owed visits. I had originally planned to be in the cities for longer periods of time and thus thought I'd have plenty of time to see everyone but things changed. I had a whopping 42 hours in LA with four people to meet, three of whom lived on completely opposite sides of the city, of course.
I grew up hearing "California, you don't want to live there" but after finally visiting, it's the one place in the US I could actually envision myself 'settling down'
