    San Diego, California

    August 21, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Kurzer Halt im Balboa-Park San Diego. Hier gibt es so etwas wie Historie zu sehen. Da hätte man auch den ganzen Tag verbringen können. Es gibt mehrere Museen, für die keine Zeit mehr war...

    Balboa Park

    November 11, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Another lazy day was spent checking out Balboa Park home to many muesums, the world's largest outdoor organ and the famous San Diego Zoo. Although we didn't get to see any of these things we did check out a pretty cool Rose and Cacti Garden. Then we enjoyed the last of the sun drinking local beer on the lawn.Read more

    San Diego

    February 9, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Googlemaps predicted it would take 30 minutes to get to Balboa Park but the GPS took me straight through the city as I had directed it to avoid the I-5. An hour and 45 minutes later I arrived at Balboa Park! On the return trip I did take the I-5 and was home in 30 minutes. The traffic flow came to an abrupt stop just as I reached my exit. Happy to have avoided that.

    Balboa Park is described as "A landscape of arts and culture". Many of the buildings originated from the First World's Fair in 1915. It is home to 15 major museums, performing arts venues, gardens, and the San Diego Zoo. Because it took so long for me to get there, I didn't have time to go inside any of the museums. It was crucial that I leave the city before rush hour.

    Balboa Park & WH Cycling Connections

    December 1, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    We headed up to Balboa Park for a quick tour to check out the Cactus Gardens and to take in the general ambiance around all the museums clustered in the park. There are some pretty funky and many nasty looking cacti out there, and surely we will see many of them as we continue riding in the desert down the Baja. From Balboa Park we headed to South Park to meet up with Nelly, Jerome, and their 6-year old daughter Josephine who are also cycling from Whitehorse to Central America. We compared notes on our favourite and less favourite parts of the trip and shared advice we had each gathered regarding the road ahead. After missing each other several times due to the zigging and zagging we each did down the coast, it was fun to finally connect. They are heading down the Baja soon as well, so we may meet up again down the road.Read more

    San Diego

    December 14, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 18 °C

    Jeudi, 14 décembre 2017
    La petite famille décide aujourd'hui de faire une journée calme à la "maison". Les grand-parents vont à San Diego au Balboa Park, un magnifique oasis de verdure au milieu de cette cité de plus d'un million d'habitants. Il y a huit jardins différents et plein de bâtiments de style hispanique, construits pour deux grandes expositions en 1915 et 1935. Ils sont occupés par de nombreux musées. Nous allons voir le San Diego Museum of Art et le Timken Museum of Art. Un petit dîner nous est servi au Tea House du Japanese Garden. Le Desert Garden et Rose Garden nous plaisent tout particulièrement. L'autoroute du retour est pas mal encombrée et nous sommes heureux de retrouver nos petits à la maison-oiseaux.Read more

    La famille de Philippe a plusieurs rendez-vous aujourd'hui, d'abord chez la photographe et ensuite avec Meghan à l'agence des mères porteuses pour le lunch. Jonas vient avec nous à San Diego. Nous retournons au Balboa Park, le Air and Space Museum nous fait envie. De l'avion de Ch. Lindbergh et la capsule Apollo 9 jusqu'au Fa18, il y a d'innombrables avions. C'est passionnant et bien documenté. Nous sortons tout juste pour l'ouverture des stands du Foodtruck-Festival, pile-poile 14h. Ça sera de l'Italian aujourd'hui! Le jardin botanique, qui était fermé lors de notre première visite, lové dans une superbe structure en bois, héberge un grand nombre de fougères, qq orchidées, des plantes carnivores etc. Sur notre retour, nous nous arrêtons à La Jolla pour montrer à Jonas les Sealions. Il y a un monde fou, tout comme à San Diego, on sent que c'est les vacances par ici.Read more

    Zoo San Diego, USA

    January 11, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 15 °C

    Schön gestalteter Zoo. Die Fusswege führen durch Natur und angelegte Wälder, sehr schön gemacht. Einige Tiere hatten für einen Zoo viel Platz. Bei anderen wie den Pandas, die ruhelos umher tigerten, fand ich es sehr bescheiden... Tolle Vogelaviaries zum durchqueren... Leider machte er um 17 Uhr zu und wir wurden gebeten, uns rauszubewegen;-)Read more

    A small walk in Balboa park

    August 8, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    We've a relaxing walk in this peaceful park located just within the city. Starting from the really nice Spanish village , with the floor composed by a lot of coloured stone providing suddenly a sense of joy, continuing with the wonderful buildings dating back to the beginning of the century, when the park was built to welcome all the visitor for the exhibition, this step was reallu worthwhile ✌🏻✌🏻Read more
