Visions of San Diego : California

To warm up from the freezing cold up in Illinois, I was looking for a warm Christmas destination to warm up. Finally, I was able to find an affordable holiday ticket to sunny San Diego with a stop-over in Phoenix Arizona. San Diego is perhaps one of the most charming American cities I’ve visited, with the gorgeous ocean, lots of national parks, museums, few amusement parks, a Mexican vibe with Tijuana just across the border, and temperatures of around 18c mid-winter, it just seems like a wonderful place to live.

 

Before I share some of the specific places I visited in San Diego, first here are some ‘visions’ snapshots of my adventures around town…
