Our dream trip, 7 years in the making…and how we did it for $3000.
Rewind 7 years ago. My husband (boyfriend at that time) and I, were dreaming about driving the 101, beach camping, seafood eating, and honestly how in the hell we would ever do something like that! We dreamed, we talked, and then we put that on the back burner to simmer for a while.
Fast forward to December 2018… it was time!
But how? Initially we just started putting money away. A chunk of change every month for 6 months. Next came booking some key points along the way. We knew we wanted to drive Hwy 101 from North to South, this way we would be on the right side of the highway to enjoy optimal views. We had to decide our starting point, and that’s just what we did. The key to our success was FLEXIBILITY, we knew there was no way we could control ALL aspects of such a huge trip! So we reserved a total of 7 nights of our trip before we left. The rest you ask …? Well, my friends, that’s where the adventure comes in!
Adventure – an exciting experience that is typically a bold, sometimes risky, undertaking. To adventure means you have to be willing to get uncomfortable and then laugh!
