Greetings from San Diego – MariaAbroad Travel Plans July

If you follow me on Facebook, you may have already seen me spill the beans there: I am currently in beautiful San Diego and will be here for the next couple of weeks. San Diego is my home away from home. I love this city. This is where I went to college and met my husband. The beaches, the way of life, the weather, the tacos make it a perfect place to live. Damn, I miss living here! 

And since I love this place so much, I thought I would share some of the nicest areas, cool things to do and best places to eat in and around San Diego. Welcome to my old backyard. It’s good to be back, San Diego. 

So what are my plans for my time in San Diego? 

Aside from visiting with friends and family, I am looking forward to a few little adventures and fun day trips. Here is what I have planned so far (and also for my trip back over the Holidays):

Next up: Road Trip

But that is not where the fun stops. After a couple of weeks in beautiful SoCal, I will send the husband off at the airport to go home and work ๐Ÿ˜‰ and my travel buddy Robby and I will head out on an epic Road Trip in the Southwestern US. Who is Robby and why am I going on a Road Trip with him rather than my husband? Meet Robby, the Robber our sweet Patagonian Trout Hound aka Irish Snake Hound aka our sweet puppy dog that stole our hearts: 

My Travel Buddy Robby (Greetings from San Diego

  • Monument Valley

Of course, I’ll be sharing my experience with you, so stay tuned to find out about the coolest things to do in San Diego and my time on the road with my Travel buddy Robby. Can’t wait to show him some really cool places ๐Ÿ™‚

News for the Blog

I love what I do and am excited to share my travel stories with you. But since running this blog takes up almost as much time as a full-time job, I decided to monetize it to be able to be able to keep this up. What does that mean for you? Not much will change, my content will still be free, but I will include 2-3 sponsored posts a month in the future. These are articles that will introduce you to travel related products or services that I think will be interesting to you. But don’t worry, the large majority of my posts will still be my travel tips, destination guides, tour reviews and photo essays. 

What are your travel plans for this summer? Any exciting trips planned?
