California Travel Guides: USA Travel
California is one of your favorite travel destinations and a place that has my heart, and that of the kids.
The first time I went, many years ago, I fell in love with San Francisco and the wild nature of Northern California and, more recently, I fulfilled my lifelong dream of going back and seeing not only San Francisco again but also Los Angeles and the South.
In the last 4 years, we have been to California 4 times (this is quite a lot if you consider we travel from Europe!) and each time we have experienced something a little different: Berkeley and San Francisco, North Los Angeles, San Diego and South Bay LA.
Each of these trips has been a real full immersion into California culture and lifestyle thanks to the wonderful system that is home swapping. Thanks to this system, we were able to stay for quite a long stretch of time each time we went and had the chance to get the insider tips of the wonderful people who gave us their home (while staying at ours!).
Below, you will find our travel guides to California based on our own travels and experiences.
