I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could survive a two-day music festival at 29 years old. The gorgeous Monterey weather was certainly a huge help. After the fest, we set out for 17-Mile Drive and then down the Pacific Coast Highway back to Los Angeles, enjoying all the beautiful views along the way.
Is there a more beautiful drive in the country?
One of the things I was most looking forward to on this trip was the chance to eat at Big Sur Bakery. This spot is very popular in the foodie world and I somehow missed it the last time I drove up the PCH to Big Sur. This time we enjoyed sandwiches on fresh baked bread and some of the best lattes and mochas we've tasted.
There also might have been an almond croissant that had me exclaiming, "This croissant is the best decision I've ever made in my life." Much to my husband's dismay... It now tortures me that there's a four and a half hour drive between me and that perfect pastry. #foodieproblems
