Wow, I had quite the adventure, I went to SLO for the first time to visit my brother. As I mentioned along in my last post with how he lives there working as a barber. I honestly did not know what to expect while being over there… four and a half hours away but I had a blast! Let me tell you all the great things I had experienced.
First off I must say its beautiful down there, I love it the people there are INCREDIBLY nice!! It was a perfect sunny green day along with the wind blowing in my hair enjoying the nice air on my little vacation. What I really loved and noticed about San Luis Obispo was there it was super calm, chill, and clean. I say ‘clean’ because comparing from Sacramento, San Fransisco, all the places I’ve been around it was so clean and not filled with trashed all over the streets, or shit on the side of the road.. i mean here wherever you would walk it was overall nice. Wouldnt you want the place you go on for a getaway to be relaxing, clean, and enjoyable?! I know I do. Especially the people are so nice, make eye to eye with you, say “hello” it was absolutely perfect. My mom always says “you don’t have to go on big trips to have fun, its all about the experience.” Which was the perfect thing to say at the moment we were in.
However, the food I can not even begin to say what I tasted in foods for my first time. Has anyone else moaned over food because it was so good that every bite you just moaned?! Because that was me all of the trip, I couldn’t resist and good thing I took lots of pictres! I mean we had pork chops, halibut, pork belly, oysters, crab cakes, raw fish, A LOT of incredible foods I am thankful I was able to expierence. The presentations where gorgeous until we dove in and devoured it within minutes… lol oops.. too soon?
Finally, I can say I was even more thankful I was there with my mom and my brother because I had a blast spending quality time with my mom and see my brother who I occasionally see ever. Living that far can be hard to make trips to visit so often. Mom and I were shopping, laughing not having a worry in the world. You know for a while before this trip I had this feeling overcome me where I didn’t feel exactly on the same page myself with my parents. Things got a little bumpy with personal things going on in general. Until this trip, I saw it also as a detox because we had no distractions around us which was so so so nice. I got to hang out with my brother who I’ve seen grow into this person who is finding himself more and more every day, seeing what he is doing he absolutely loves and wants to continue to learn more about cutting hair whatever he can learn! He has dreams! Big ones. That boy is making moves and I wish nothing but the best for him in his journey of life. Later down the last couple days together, we got to see the sunset together along with ending the night with a beautiful dinner where there was no stress. I couldn’t be more happy for the family time. ❤
After having all this food I took pictures of I’m starting to want to create a separate blog of all the different foods I taste and experience, because of how good everything is its like how could you know to show it off to other people?! Anyway, i have enjoyed talking about the scenery, the weather, the food, people, my family and overall the time being there. I hope you all enjoyed this post! 🙂
