A good friend of mine told me about a place up north called Big Sur. I had always heard about this magical place, but could never find the time to drive seven hours to see it. During my summer break in 2018, I decided that it was finally time to make a visit.
The reason I say that it’s the best of both worlds is because this insanely stunning place has the views of the ocean on one side, and the views of the forest on the other. One day you can take a dip on the beach, and the next you can go on a lovely hike amongst the pines.
