Growing up my family didn’t do much traveling. My parents never really cared for seeing the world, me on the other hand, the moment I would see an airplane in the air I would stop and give attention. I would daydream of all the lives that were on the plane, I wish to be where they were going and joint them on the adventure of seeing something new.
In my twenties, I had the opportunity to travel and see many new places. I still have a long list of desinations (Iceland, Germany, Italy) but now in my thirties, it’s the season of being responsible and paying off my debts.
Until I am debt free, travel has been postponed. It took me a while to accept this truth, but living in California I know there is still lots to see, and I can make the most of it. It’s a beautiful state with so many small pockets of great cities.
La Jolla Beach is a small part of San Diego, near Sea World. I had never been to this location before but saw a friend on Instragram share their trip. I saved the photo for the next time I had a day off with Gus.
It was our three year anniversary, and Gus said I can pick anywhere to go. We head towards La Jolla to spend the day at the beach. When we walked towards the seashore, I was amazing to see wild sea lions hanging out near the water. I even saw some scuba divers in the water.
Just a walk away there are fancy shops and places to eat. 🙂 We ate at a great Mexican restaurant that had great fish tacos called Alfonso. I couldn’t believe I had never been here before, it was so beautiful and close by, it was like discovering one of California’s greatest secrets.
After lunch, we visited the Aquarium and it had the most fascinating sea life.
By the end of the day, I walked away with a fresh sense of life. Travel is so important to me as a creative person. I have to leave my life every once in a while to get a fresh perspective. Even if you can’t travel to far, try to find something new to do and create some fresh memories.
