    Today we travelled the 6 and a half hours to Santa Barbara. It was probably, for me, one of the hardest journeys so far. The day began fine: we got up, had breakfast, packed and set off for a cafe next to the bus stop where we would be getting the 20 bus to Salinas. We got our drinks, and sat down inside to pass the hour and a half we had to wait.

Was really tired, so fell asleep watching a film so of course woke up at silly o'clock again. ...

    ... do have massive portions between the three of us we had s o much food left. However, the grill was lovely and we all enjoyed our dinner.
    The following day on the Sunday we had an early start as we had a busy day ahead we were off to Hearst Castle. Hearst castle is a California historical landmark and designed and built newspaper owner William Randolph Hearst and was completed in 1947. The castle is not a standard English castle, it is more ...
