People say I travel a lot. My family says I travel too much. I say there is no such thing.

School starts up September 2nd, and I wanted to go on one last trip to end one of my best summers yet. (Nothing beats last summer). A friend of mine, whom I traveled with to London and Barcelona, just moved out to Southern California for school. It was a perfect excuse to travel outside of my state. Not too far, but far enough.

I’m just here for the holiday weekend, so we’re trying to cram as much stuff as we can into the few days I have here. And it started out pretty well, I say. What’s better than eating your way through Carlsbad at an Oceanside Market?

postvictoria spongeThe baker lady is from London, herself. She seemed excited that we actually new that London was broken up into smaller cities. She spent most of her life in Stepney then moved further out into Essex. We made a connection, it was great.

After a hard few hours of feasting our eyes out, we set out for the beach.
