California - Food

The California trip involved eating more Mexican food, Italian, sourdough bread, fast food, sweets, and more. I was really satisfied with the food eating on this trip.

California Trip

The last leg of my trip in California involved friends and family time, often over meals and board games. I visited San Francisco on a beautiful, sunny day and rode the cable car and learned more about it at the Cable Car Museum. Also went to some places in the Sonoma area – it’s famous as the home of Peanuts cartoonist Charles Schulz.

Arizona - Food

While on my Arizona trip, I ate Mexican food whenever possible, had great desserts and burgers, and went through berries like there was no tomorrow. Also had really good homemade food other people made me which was great.
