Right now, my family is in northern California – specifically Santa Cruz – for my little brother Reid’s college orientation at UC Santa Cruz. We’ve been up here for just over a full day so far – and will be exploring the area until Sunday. Here’s some snapshots of what we’ve been up to:
drinks in the hotel bar with Kerren, one of my roommates from Madrid:
appreciating all of the weirdness Santa Cruz has to offer:
finding a falafel sandwich to keep my Mediterranean food obsession going:
exploring the UC Santa Cruz campus with my family:
dinner in neighboring city Los Gatos, which is adorable:
…and dessert next door at Happy Yogurt.
The rest of the trip will include visting with my Aunt and Uncle who are down here from Oakland, getting a couple of runs in, and exploring the Santa Cruz boardwalk.
Have you been to Santa Cruz before? Any recommendations?
