A visit to San Diego

Standard

Soo, we are a few days behind here… Too much fun in the sun is the reason for that. At the moment we are watching the most radical action imaginable: wing suit flying – 81 of them at the same time! Before I tell you more about that I’ll turn back time a few days and show some photos from San Diego!

As Ron Burgundy put it: “Mmm. San Diego. Drink it in, it always goes down smooth. Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diago, which of course in German means “a whale’s vagina”.”

We have watched Anchorman numerous times, but neither one of us had been to the whale’s vagina, so (as usual) we were excited to check it out. Being close to Mexico and knowing that border areas can be fairly sketchy, we didn’t imagine the beautiful paradise San Diego proved to be.

We had a wonderful day cruising around taking in the quaint, big city. You know some places you go to, you just get a feeling that people are happy to be there. You see people on their own walking down the street with a big smile on their face. That’s what we felt in San Diego. No big stress, just sunshine, flowers and palm trees in the breeze. On our way back north we drove through one little beach town after another like beautiful beads on a string. Surf is everywhere. Surfers, surf shops, surf signs, surf statues, surf shirts – quite the lifestyle!
