San Diego, California

I’ve spent the last 10 days in beautiful San Diego, California.  A great city that really does offer something for everyone.  You can be drinking coffee at the beach at 10:00 AM and 2 hours later (or less) be in the mountains of the Cleveland National Forest at 7,500 ft elevation having lunch.  There are great museums, parks, shopping, restaurants and live entertainment located relatively close together in San Diego.  Unlike LA, the San Diego freeways are very manageable and pretty easy to navigate.

Visitors to San Diego should not miss a visit to Balboa Park, home to the San Diego Zoo and half a dozen museums and wonderful gardens.  Just park your car in the free lots located in the park, grab your camera and walk for a few hours through the well manicured gardens and museums.

Balboa Park was the result of civic foresight dating back to 1868, thanks to some generous individuals!

A day in Balboa Park will never disappoint!

I am an adventure-loving American man, with a severe case of wander-lust and a desire to experience as much of this wonderful world as humanly possible. Every place I have visited or lived has taught me something about life and helped me grow. For me, traveling opens my eyes to how similar the human race is, yet at the same time, how unique we all are. I hope this blog will motivate you to put down the TV remote, dust off your backpack and decide to take a chance on an adventure. It can be a walk in a new neighborhood 2 miles from home or a trip to a far off distant land. I have lived in or visited over 50 countries during my life and hope to see many more. I want to share my experiences. I hope you enjoy the blog. -WAND3R3R, Somewhere on the Globe, 2014.
