🥾 Big Sur
As Lorena and I looked at the calendar this year, we decided that we should go somewhere to celebrate our anniversary. We had fun discussing various destinations, from Europe to tropical islands.
While we would have undoubtedly enjoyed those locations, we both preferred something a little… slower. A trip without the busy distractions, allowing us to connect to one another and to nature. We really liked our time visiting Lake Tahoe, so with this in mind, we landed on Big Sur.
We have just returned from the trip, and I must say, it was really special.
If you haven’t been to Big Sur, then you owe it to yourself to spend some time there. The landscapes are both stunning and peaceful. You have mountains, tall pines, redwoods, cliffs, and the ocean. There is plenty to do outdoors, and we took advantage of it.
Some of the activities we did during our trip:
- Went on several hikes.
- Discovered local herbs and plant life (including the dangerous ones).
- Enjoyed some massages.
- Relaxed by the various pools.
- Learned about bees and tasted the local honey.
- Learned how to make cocktails with natural herbs.
- Just rested, appreciating nature.
We stayed a total of five days, and that was just about right. We plan to come back again next year, but will stay at another hotel to get some new experiences.
Here are just a few of the hundreds of pictures we took!
