"California dreamin..."

Happy Birthday to US

Another year older and another birthday adventure for the dynamic duo. Two sisters celebrating their birthdays by exercising that wanderlust instilled in us many...many moons ago. After much deliberation on the destination...the choice this year..a California road trip with a cruise to Baja. Perfect. Reservations made...we are ready to go. Counting down now...time to start the packing. A quick call to the little sister.."what are you bringing?" She replies.."I'm wearing the same outfit for 11 days...I have a closet full of clothes and don't know what to bring!" We laugh and decide on total casual and comfort. List in hand...should be easy, right? Well, it IS all about casual ...that.. is the plan. Let's see..capri's, bathing suit, camera, map, guide book, ...Now to get it all into my new ebags and see how great they are...a tip from a fellow traveller on a previous trip. Ebags are light-weight zippered bags to organize all of your "stuff" and keep it from getting too wrinkled. Everything is packed and beautifully organized in my new Samsonite 360 suitcase... another tip ..this one from my sister. Last suitcase..used once...was ruined by security in another country..never to be used again. My TSA lock, gone as well. It happens and becomes part of the adventure!

These annual birthday adventures started several years ago. We decided to heed the good advice of our parents and "enjoy our life"...spending time together travelling the world and making new discoveries and memories. Sort of a "Eat, Pray, Love" thing. We have a great time wherever we go and are always up for the adventures...whatever they may be.

Pick-up a new TSA lock, mani's and pedi's booked for the afternoon, a bite to eat at the local sushi place... a good nights rest...and..

We are on our way! Off we go!!!!!
