Headed From Sunny San Fran to stay with American relatives of mine (Bill and Gail) in Monterey - a 4 hour bus journey south.
I have only ever met them twice so was a little nervous about staying with them for 3 days.
They were extremely hospitable and we had lots of much longed for home cooking every night.
They drove us along the wonderful Big Sur coastline which we have always wanted to see. It was fab with sunny weather, cliffs, blue seas, crashing waves, sandy beaches. Parts of it were a little like the cliffs of Moher but on a much larger scale. Like lots of Americans, hey love their gift shops so we stopped off at a few along the way - Alan was delighted!

The following day, we toured around the famous Pebble beach golf course - it was amazing with approx 9 different courses along the sea and loads of amazing houses, one of which Bill and Gail used to live in. We also drove through Carmel - a pretty tourist town with a fab beach.
Our bus trip back to San Fran was intresting to say the least - I vow to never travel on the American Greyhound again after it.....
