Planning a California Road Trip (and a Giveaway)

Paula Gaston

Soon we will head out on a road trip down to Southern California. We have been planning for this trip for a while now, and I am getting excited. The main event is a family wedding on the Mother's Day weekend, and that is how we started planning this trip. Part of the fun of in travelling is also the planning!

We drive first over to see our family in the Los Angeles area. Our plan is to visit also Disneyland Park in Anaheim. Wohoo! I have been there once about five years ago, and then I didn't know what to expect. It was beyond all of my expectations and I am so excited to go visit again. It's also about time for our 4 year old to experience Disneyland. Many of her friends have already visited there and talk about it often. The other reason we decided to visit Disneyland on this trip is our happy news of our growing family. We are expecting a little sister for her to be born at the end of summer, so after that visit to the park will be harder.

After a day in Disneyland we will drive about an hour to south, to Temecula Wine Country. There we will stay for two nights participating the rehearsal dinner and then the next day, the wedding. Hopefully we will be able to check out Temecula a little bit as well. Our little daughter is honoured to be a flower girls in the wedding ceremony so it will be extra special.

After we will be touring around in some National Parks. First we will drive down to San Diego, where mu husband will hope into a plane heading back to San Francisco due to his work commitments. At the same time I will picking up my friend from the airport who will join us for the rest of the trip. After few days in San Diego we will start heading back north stopping at Cabrillo National Monument, Joshua Tree Park, Mojave National Preserve, Chezar E. Chavez National Monument, Sequoia National Park and at Kings Canyon. There is many other places too on our list but we will have to see how much time we have. And now, back to planning and booking the hotels.

As I am excited to tour around California again, I will be giving away a journal (or a note book) by Mara-Mi. Just leave a comment on the comment field and tell me what kind of travel plans you have for the future. Don't forget to leave your email address when you log in or in the comment field, I after I draw the winner, I will personally contact the lucky person! Good luck!
