Pit Stop: Santa Barbara

Instead of going straight to Tokyo from Boston, I decided to give myself a five day layover in L.A. with my friend Malcolm, who I haven’t seen in seven years! First stop, In-N-Out Burger. Double-Double with a chocolate milkshake and fries please. Oh, sweet calories! Next, we cruised down to the Harbor View Inn in Santa Barbara. The drive was long, but picturesque. It was definitely a reminder that I’m not a fan of L.A. traffic! Because I was suffering from massive amounts of jet lag, we only managed to take a quick stroll down the Santa Barbara pier and grab fro-yo at YogurtLand. Cactus fruit tart flavored yogurt was borderline life-changing.

Gotta love Malcolm’s Carrera shades

Yeah that’s right, it’s a sneaker night

Tomorrow, I’m looking forward to starting my day off with a run down the beach, exploring State St. and finishing the night with some delicious local wine! Any ideas of things that I absolutely have to see while I’m in SB? Let me know! xoxo
