as for me, i have spring break (my last one ever!!!!) coming up in four weeks. maybe you guys have some mini vacay coming up as well? as some of you might remember, i went to san diego over thanksgiving. and today, i thought i’d compile some of the places into a mini travel guide, as if you would be there for a weekend! disclaimer: i do not know san diego well at all, but i thought i’d gather some of the places i liked however. no?

friday:

so, maybe you’ve just arrived. leave off your stuff at wherever place you’re staying and then go have some mexican (the tacos in san diego are seriously the best ones i’ve ever had). go to city tacos in north park (3028 university ave) and have the smoked salmon one and the pescado one.

then, if you’re up for a drink, grab a cab and head over to the tipsy crow in the gaslamp quarter (770 5th ave) and check out their specialty beers.

saturday:

start the day off by heading out to coronado, a beautiful san diego peninsula. have a huge breakfast wrap at café 1134 (1134 orange ave) and then go down to coronado beach and walk around there without shoes. in the early afternoon, head to coronado’s north shore and have a glance at san diego’s skyline.

if you’re getting hungry for some italian, go over to little italy back in mainland san diego and grab a table at davanti enoteco (1655 india st). if you’re lucky, it’s still happy hour and both the wine and some assorted dished (the cacio e pepe! yum.) are around $8!

make sure to go over to the port of san diego at the time of sunset. the ships are just sooooo beautiful. very instagrammable.

sunday:

take a light croissant-and-coffee breakfast à la italian style at caffe calabria (3933 30th st), and don’t forget to check out the huge coffee mill in the back. then, head over to balboa park! it’s so huge and beautiful there. take a stroll through the botanical building, say hi to the koi fish in the pond and maybe go to the museum of man if there’s any good exhibitions.

for lunch, you NEED to go for tacos at oscar’s mexican seafood in pacific beach (746 emerald st). have the smoked fish ones oh my god. after dying from food amazingness, go down to the beach and out on the pier. take one million pictures and do some hot surfer spotting.

in the afternoon, drive over to just where sunset cliffs start and then walk aaaall the way to where they end and back. it’s so so beautiful, and if you’re lucky, maybe yo have timed it well to just when the sun sets.

for dinner, order the lobster mac and cheese at d bar in hillcrest (3930 5th ave) and thank me forever afterwards. grab a glass of wine in one of the wine bars in the neighborhood, if it’s not already time for you to end your san diego weekend now.

have a lovely trip! san diego is super cool.

om sisådär fyra veckor har jag mitt sista spring break! waow. ni kanske också har nån liten ledighet inplanerad? om ni iallafall någon gång har vägarna förbi san diego, så har jag nu gjort en liten minireseguide dit. jag var ju där över thanksgiving och känner ju inte till staden så bra, men här är iallafall en liten sammanställning av ett gäng ställen jag gillade och som jag tycker ni borde spana in. trevlig resa!

    En liten del av mig sörjer att vår usa resa inte blev av (men ett sommarhus däremot!), men det var egentligen inte alls det jag ville kommentera utan LJUSET i några av bilderna. SÅ FINT!
