editor's notes Travel is the movement of people between relatively distant geographical locations, and can involve travel by foot, bicycle, automobile, train, boat, airplane, or other means, with or without luggage, and can be one way, round trip or continuous. Travel can also include relatively short stays between successive movements. According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, the first known use of the word travel was in the 14th century. It also states that the word comes from Middle English travailen, travelen (which means to torment, labor, strive, journey). We consider it a labor of love, what life is about: experiences, hotels, food, dessert, love, adventures, the journey...so come away with us.. We welcome you to let's go travel...

SOLO TRAVEL LET'S GO TRAVEL

PAGE 25 • VOYAGE

There is a beauty to being unattached, you can go where you want, when you want, with others or by yourself. You don't have to be with someone, just to be with anyone and you don't have to travel with others, So, take a breath, plan, take safety measures and know you can travel alone. Just like a ship set to sail on the open sea, you too can book that cruise, buy that plane ticket, roll your windows down and drive or take that train and just go. You are free. You are unanchored.


TWO CHEEKY TRAVELERS

LET'S GO TRAVEL | ONCE | OCTOBER 2022

ONCE IN A LIFETIME

CALIFORNIA If you're only going to travel to California one time, these are the places you should experience

alifornia is one of the most beautiful places to visit in the world. The land of abundance, overindulgence, entertainment, innovation, wealth, agriculture, mountains, cities, wine, beaches. California has it all. If you only get to make it to California "Once In Your Lifetime. This is the California you need to see, not what Hollywood shows you, not what every other magazine, website and article tells you. These are the most beautiful places in the Golden State.

There aren't many places that aren't a good start in the California, but we'll start in Southern California and work our way up. First destination: San Diego. The most beautiful area of San Diego is Del Mar in Northern San Diego. The walkable village offers restaurants, rooftop dining and drinks and is one true block to the ocean. Del Mar beach is friendly no matter your age: friendly for adults of all ages and family-friendly too. The only downside is parking can be tough, but it will be a great walk. CONTINUED NOMADIC

TRAVEL IS THE ONLY THING YOU BUY THAT MAKES YOU RICHER

Del Mar offers budget-friendly and luxury hotels including the pretty L'Auberge Del Mar. While the staff and hospitality could greatly improve, the accommodations, rooftop drinks with a spectacular ocean view and location just can't be beat. After San Diego, while most will tell you need to visit LA, Hollywood and Rodeo Drive, we recommend LA adjacent Disneyland. Disneyland and California Adventure theme parks are oustanding Southern California experiences for the kid in all of us. South Coast Plaza has the best luxury shopping and is only about 10 minutes to Disneyland. Stay at the Hyatt Place for some of the best service around, budget-friendly rates and modern rooms with kitchens. If walkability to Disneyland is what you want, The Disneyland Hotel is the choice. It has been renovated and is classic Walt Disney Disneyland. The headboards in the spacious rooms light up offering magic that will make your heart soar whether 8, 18 or 88+. The service is fantastic, particularly management. Just a small walk and take the monorail directly into the park and the California magic of the Happiest Place On Earth.

California is drivable; depending on how much time you have, most destinations take between 2 to 6 hours to drive. While this would be the part where most will tell you that Yosemite is a must, we take you in the opposite direction, towards the most beautiful part of California and the best coastline in the world: the Central Coast of California. However, If you love the mountains, and national parks than of course visit Yosemite, it is peaceful and majestic with mountains meadows, hiking and waterfalls galore, we recommend Chateau du Sureau for a completely different European experience. It is luxury personified. As the internet states, of what may be an "unpopular opinion" Yosemite isn't the top place to visit in California. We get to a mountain area that is even more stunning later on in the journey. The most beautiful places in California are clear: the oceans and beaches are spectacular. California coastline from Southern to Nothern California are the most amazing in the world. They are different depending on where you go. Northern California beaches are rock and beach glass filled beaches. Southern California are sandy and sunny. CONTINUED


WHERE TO TRAVEL

LET'S GO TRAVEL | ONCE

From Huntington Beach to Fort Bragg any beach is a good choice. Malibu if you just want to say you've visited, Santa Monica for a stroll on the 3rd Street Promenade. Laguna and Newport to experience the Orange County lifestyle, but where the beaches start to get great is a little farther north of LA. Start in Santa Barbara to experience the California beach life, palm trees galore. Santa Barbara has a great town, with an upscale, but relaxed, non-pretentious vibe. Its Spanish Colonial Revival architecture, stunning natural beauty and warm sunny weather makes this beach area great.There are fun and delicious breakfast spots right on the beach front with ocean views. Coffee shops, outstanding Mexican restaurants and outdoor sunny dining are the things to experience in Santa Barbara. Some of our favorite beaches start along the Central Coast of California in Pismo Beach. This is a quintessential California beach town, the souvenir shops, tourists and beaches are a must. Be sure to grab a cinnamon roll at Old West Cinnamon Rolls on the way back to your hotel. One of the best hotels and resorts anywhere is in Pismo/Shell Beach, Dolphin Bay Resort. This resort is unlike any other in the area. It is an allsuite hotel, and when we say suite, we mean suite. The rooms are real suites with full luxury kitchens, living rooms with views of the pool or ocean and 1-2 bedroom accommodations as well as multiple 2-bedroom penthouse suites. There is a restaurant, spa and the most magnificent ocean views from the ocean front balconies.

LET'S GO TRAVEL | PAGE 40


ONCE UPON A TIME CALIFORNIA During your stay on the Central Coast, you can drive right over to a hidden gem: Avila Beach. This is a small beach village with only two blocks of shops and flat, sunshine-filled beaches. On your drive in to the one road beach town stop off at Avila Valley Barn to buy fresh fruits and vegetables, tasty baked goods and pies. Happily meet the farm animals that greet you. Avila features Farmer's Markets, a few casual and fine dining restaurants with beautiful ocean views; but the best part of Avila is the beach. The most beautiful area of California is the Monterey Bay and the picturesque town of Carmel-by-the-Sea. Monterey, Pacific Grove and Carmel all offer various experiences. A wide array of hotels and Bed & Breakfasts like the historic Seven Gables in Pacific Grove, fantastic dining in Monterey and glorious beaches. The name captures it perfectly and Carmel-by-theSea is the place to see in California. The city was incorporated over 100 years ago on Halloween and the magic didn't stop there. The enchantment is always around. The architecture is divine and from the hotels like La Playa and Normandy Inn, the entire village is a high-end, classy fairytale homes, surrounded by pristine beaches overlooking Carmel Beach and Pebble Beach. You can take the drive to San Francisco if you wnat to see the Golden Gate Bridge and the City By The Bay. There is great luxury shopping, Pier 39 near the Financial District that has various restaurants, bakeries and the cool San Francisco weather. We like to take a turn to the right though and head over to the beautiful Napa Valley.

California is known for its amazing agriculture and viticulture, producing almost half of all the food for the nation: grapes, fruits, nuts and vegetables grown in the country, as well as livestock and dairy. California's largest commodity is grapes. The Napa wine region is world-renowned for their grapes and wineries, along with luxurious hotels and little towns throughout the valley. From Napa, to Calistoga, to Saint Helena, the Napa experience is a must have experience at least once in your life. Explore Napa through the wine train, or dine in the downtown. Drive along the connecting road to see an abundance of vines and the working wineries. Even if you don't drink wine, the feeling in Napa is always enjoyable. Explore shops, visit the Culinary Institute and take pictures in this picturesque area. Yountville is our favorite Napa town, where you visit just to stroll through the main street, view public art sculptures, drink wine, dine and enjoy the moment. Napa is an upscale area filled with our favorite restarurant R+D Kitchen. People watch outdoors at Bouchon Bakery and take home delicious truffles from Kollar Chocolates. Our last once in a lifetime, California destination is Lake Tahoe, yes, the area that we think is more spectacular than Yosemite. They don't call it Heavenly for their skiing without reason. Lake Tahoe is in California (south shore) with casinos and big hotels and luxury in Truckee at The Ritz. Nevada (north shore) and Incline Village, we include it because it is a must see. The mountains are incredible and the lake is crystal clear, the best lake in the United States. So come to California and live your once in a lifetime travel fairytale.

DON'T GO IN CIRCLES

adrift While you may feel lost, perhaps you're just adrift right now. Slowly moving to your next destination like a ship on the sea, as it moves with the waves. Sometimes not knowing where the next turn will be, when it will be smooth again, but trusting that the sun will shine through. As Roosevelt said, "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor." We get better and wiser in life when we experience adversity or rough seas. We can't see it when we're in the storm, its too hard to see through the rain. So we learn to tow the line or cut the rope completely and make our own rules. That's why we feel so calm, happy and peaceful when we look at the ocean. It reminds us of life, how a rough sea can turn into sparkly, beautiful waves. We just have to look beyond the surface to the horizon to see and appreciate the beauty.


WAVES, SUNSHINE, PEACE, HAPPINESS, CALM. LOVE

how the beach makes us feel Like the siren call, the known song of the mermaid, she sings of joy and radiates beauty. No matter how we feel, when we're at the beach, we feel joyful, thankful and happy. The one emotion humans are always searching for, happiness, is staring right at us at the beach. We watch as passerbys, whether local or visiting, just pause, take a moment and look out at the ocean view. What are they thinking, we wonder. Just living in the moment. Grateful.

The waves they crash upon the sand, and it takes away anything unwanted washing it out into the sea, carrying it all away, truly letting go. The ocean waves lull us to sleep at night as God and nature's most calming and natural lullaby. The beauty and magnitude of the ocean makes us feel small and happy. We are peaceful, peace-filled, content, enjoying the moment. We are living. As the siren calls to sea, the sea calls us to us, and we listen and love.

1-2 BEDROOM LUXURY SUITES,

KITCHENS...AND, OH, THOSE VIEWS The exterior of Dolphin Bay welcomes you with a latte colored Mediterranean 4story feel. It is perched upon a cliff, with a walkaway and private parking. The large wood doors welcome you to your home away from home. The entry way immediately teases you with the views of the pool from the one-bedrooms and the ocean from the two-bedrooms. You breathe a sigh of relief that you are finally home with that view. Many hotels claim to be suites, but these are actualy apartment like suites. While never actual condos turned into a hotel (which somehow became a rumor), all of the rooms have a luxury condo feel. Large granite kitchens with dishwashers, fullsize stainless steel refrigerators, oven, stove, and cabinet and counterpane for a full dinner or Thanksgiving celebration. There is a dining table that seats 4 - 6 and barstools that seat three.
