Big Sur Road Trip: Part Two

April 7, 2016 • By

Technology has become such a big part of our daily lives that, at times, it can be suffocating. Desperately wanting to disconnect, Gerred and I packed up our car and headed North for a 4-day Big Sur road trip. We found peace away from the buzz of normal life by hiking and taking in the sights during the day and gazing at the stars at night. So much peace, I can understand why a celebrity might want to visit Big Sur just to get away.

Big Sur Road Trip: Part One

April 5, 2016 • By

Free weekends and time off are hard to come by with a spouse in the military. So when Gerred was awarded a long weekend off in February, we knew we had to take advantage of it. Upon hearing the news, we immediately pulled out a map of California and traced our fingertips across the west coast until they came to rest on Big Sur. For our 4-day weekend, we wanted to disconnect from technology and reconnect with nature and each other on a Big Sur road trip.
