Santa Barbara

My third visit to California was last spring. Dad and I chose to take a different kind of vacation then the road trip and just relax in one place for a week. So we choose Santa Barbara!

We stayed in an adorable little place called the Blue Sands Motel where we stayed in a two bedroom room with a kitchen en suite. This meant that we got to cook some awesome dinners with groceries from the market next door. 🙂

The best part? Waking up to coffee from freshly ground beans and a view like this from my room:


For our time here, we did not have a vehicle. This meant that we were limited to the surrounding area, so ALOT of walking was involved and it essentially forced us to relax and just chill out – not necessarily a bad thing.

So what did we do in Santa Barbara? Well we mostly walked around, shopped and enjoyed the scenery:





We went on a freezing but well worth it whale watching tour:

We relaxed on the beach and the pier:



We got to eat and cook some amazing meals (all with fresh ingredients from the a farmer’s market and fish market):




Dad and I had a great trip together, we really just got to chill out in Santa Barbara and enjoy our favorite things, like eating, cooking walking and visiting 🙂

I would highly recommend Santa Barabara as a great California destination choice if you want somewhere that can offer everything and be relaxing! If you want to be able to do a bit more, I would recommend renting a car!
