It's just over a couple of weeks before I fly east to my favourite place in the world, the Central California coast. I fell in love with the place last time and hope to do the same this time round. It's a shame it's so expensive but I need a little luxury after the last few months. I've booked a few nights at the place above, the InterContinental Clement Monterey which is the most beautiful (and expensive) hotel I've ever stayed at. To get there, though, I'm being forced to endure visiting Santa Barbara, Cambria's Moon Stone Beach and the Santa Cruz mountains as well.
I think I'll cope.
