Mr and Mrs T. Our West Coast adventure May 2016

Been back just over a week now and we really don't want to be here. We had such a wonderful time in California we seriously have withdrawal systems.

Jet lag is a big issue this time. We are both struggling. Not so bad for me as I don't work now but Elaine is having a hard time getting going.

Still trip report is now on the go and I hope to have it completed over the next few days.

Quite a few pictures - we did take around 2,500 in total - but you will be pleased to know I have not posted that many!

Hope you enjoy reading about our journey.

Just read your entire trippie in one go and really enjoyed it.

We're visiting the West Coast for the first time next year, so your trippie has been very useful in helping me make some plans.

A lovely report and it's really helped with my planning for our first West Coast trip in Sept/Oct this year. I've been considering the Napa Valley Wine tasting tour and your day has convinced me that we'll be doing that. We always talk about doing the hop on/off bus when we go to a city, but have never done it yet, we always end up walking, however, you made the San Francisco one sound so good. Thanks for sharing.
