My parents and I while hit the road on Christmas Eve to spend the two most magical days of the year in the quaintest little town of Carmel-By-The-Sea, an idyllic place on the coast of California, just south of Monterey.
On a warm December afternoon, dad and I drove a couple hours down the winding coastal path in search of beautiful views.
The California Coastal Trail officially stretches from Land’s End to the Golden Gate Bridge, but I added on the walk starting from the Caltrain station on the east side.
My parents and I booked a whirlwind week down to the iconic San Francisco to immerse ourselves in the Cali lifestyle.
My dream is to road trip the entire west coast; but for now a drive from San Francisco to Santa Cruz with my mum will do just the trick!
