Over 600 hairpin turns. 54 one way bridges. Last chance for gas is before you even begin. Parts of it do not allow rental cars to drive on.

A week in Southern California to escape the winter should be on everyone's agenda. While I'm having so much fun exploring Vancouver, the snow we've been receiving is making me antsy for Vitamin D. Plus, I thought I moved AWAY from Wisconsin. Go away, snow! Fortunately, Tyler and I had this San Diego trip booked for early February and were able to get a nice dose of sun and fun. Here is an in-depth list of what to do in San Diego!…

The pace of life slows down, the time passing seems to wind down, and even the drivers slow it way down (there are…
