Well hello, Solvang!

Image

Tantas veces que he escuchado del famoso “wine tasting” y nunca se me había ocurrido ir a hacerlo – hasta ahora! Yesenia y Beks nos invitaron a Benjamin y a mi a Solvang – un pueblito Danés repleto de huertos y viñaterías a unas dos horas de Los Angeles.

Elegimos el día perfecto y la compañía ideal… Entre el calorón, las vistas, la plática, las risas, la aventura, y el vinito y sus efectos, se convirtió en una experiencia inolvidable.

(nota para novatos: Con dos rondas fue MAS que suficiente para nosotros! Presiento que se estaban pasando de generosos con las probaditas de vino – ha de haber sido la buena compañía, te digo…)

Regresando a casa, antes de llegar a Santa Barbara llegamos a una playita fresca y aislada que espero poder volver a encontrar algún día. *suspiro* Amo California!

I’ve heard about wine tasting so many times that I almost felt like I’d already done it. But I hadn’t – until now. Yesenia and Beks invited Ben and me to Solvang, a small Danish community about two hours north of LA.

We chose the perfect day and the most amazing company… between the sweltering heat, the gorgeous views, the conversations, the laughter, the adventure, and the wine and its effects, it was a crazy day and an unforgettable experience.

(Note for novices: two rounds were about the limit for us! I have a feeling everyone was just being really generous with us – must have been the great company)

On the way home before we hit Santa Barbara we somehow arrived (funny how that happens when you’re not behind the wheel, eh?) at this refreshingly beautiful secluded beach. I sure hope I can find it again some day. *sigh* I love California!

P.D. Estoy 100% consciente que ya me toca decolorarme el cabello otra vez, pero por el momento estoy disfrutando este ‘look’ bastante!

P.S. I’m well aware of my roots, but enjoying them throughly for the time being, oddly enough…

One thought on “Well hello, Solvang!

  1. Yo vivo a unos 45 minutos de Solvang en un pueblito llamado Orcutt. Ojala si regresas de nuevo podras ir a varias playa exoticas y privadas en California; Point Sal y Guadalupe Dunes. Yo antes vivi en Santa Barbara por 9 años pero por lo caro que es vivir en SB, me quede en Orcutt.

    Tambien yo trabajo en San Luis Obispo todos los dias (en una emisora KWWW-FM Wild 106.1 FM) y el trayecto desde el trabajo a mi casa me encanta bastante. California es un lugar hermoso y muchos no lo tomamos en cuenta. Ojala regreses pronto a la costa central Holly.

    I live about 45 minutes north of Solvang in the town of Orcutt (just outside of Santa Maria). Hopefully if you return you can check out some of the most exotic and private beaches in California; Point Sal and Guadalupe Dunes. I used to live in Santa Barbara for nine years but because of how high living expenses are, I decided to settle in Orcutt.

    I also work in San Luis Obispo every day (at radio station KWWV-FM Wild 106.1 FM) and the drive is simply amazing and I love it. California is a wonderful place and many people take it for granted. Hopefully you return to the Central Coast soon Holly.
