    San Francisco to San Luis Obispo

    July 14, 1992 in the United States

    Time to leave San Fran. Pete was again up early to go and book his ticket for Seattle after we leave. Found another Burger King for breakfast with Joel & Sean grumbling about it. Took 1010 south and then I-7 and made for Santa Cruz. Kids excited to see a roller coaster. Parked the car and found quite a fair. Went on several rides and had lunch before heading off again down the coast. No European accents around. Took the coast road and stopped briefly in Carmel for a look at the Mission. Had some nice views along the coast - hills beside the beach with mist hanging around most of the time. Saw a colony of well over 100 sea lions on a beach. Quite a long drive down the coast alongside the Santa Lucia range. All similar countryside. In places it reminded us of the road to Hana. The mist was fascinating. It was everywhere and we wondered if it was like this all the time.

    Stopped in San Simeon to photograph the William Hearst Castle perched up on a hill. Couldn't get close because gates closed. Drove on and finally arrived in San Luis Obispo. It was about 8pm. Thought we'd need to eat fairly soon, and the Monterey Cafe attached to the motel seemed reasonable. We had fun trying to answer questions from the trivia cards on the table. Nicole's appetite still not quite back, although she at least felt like ordering something. Her face looks really nasty today. Must have about 30 spots on her face, and she's been wearing dad's tracksuit pants and shirt today. Even woke up this morning with a pus-filled eye.

    The people at the next table were Spanish and asking the waiter what was in each of the dishes. He patiently explained everything. At one stage I thought these people must surely starve before the end of their holiday! Read for a while then went to sleep.

    San Luis Obispo

    September 25, 2017 in the United States

    Das war er also, der Ort genau in der Mitte von Los Angeles und San Francisco, gegen 20Uhr sind wir dort endlich angekommen. Hungrig und total übermüdet ging es dann erst zu Walmart, den Einkauf für Frühstück und Mittagessen für die nächsten Tage erledigen und dann zu Popey, Hähnchen essen. Ist im Prinzip genau das gleiche wie KFC....
    Dann wollten wir nur noch schlafen und waren auf der Suche nach einem Campingplatz oder Motel. Das war aber gar nicht so einfach und so haben wir uns dazu entschieden vor dem nächsten Hotel halt zu machen, da das ebenfalls ausgebucht war, haben wir auf dem Hotelparkplatz heimlich im Auto übernachtet, der GMC ist auch so groß das selbst ein 2m Mann gut drin schlafen könnte ohne sich zu verrenken.....
    Mit einem mulmigen Gefühl im Bauch und ein wachen Auge schliefen wir dann ein....

    San Luis Obispo, United States

    October 24, 2016 in the United States

    Depois de uma passagem rapida pelo Muro de pastilhas, onde deixamos a nossa marca, seguimos caminho para Santa Barbara.
    Um caminho chato, no meio dos campos de agricultores ao som dos Metallica, Guns'n Roses, Deftones e Pantera.
    Apenas a parte final da viagem é que segue junto ao mar.

    San Luis Obispo, United States

    October 23, 2016 in the United States

    Que noite... Reservamos um motel em San Luís Obispo, aqueles motéis dos filmes de terror, chegamos já era de noite, não tinha ninguém na recepção iluminada, um senhor indiano apeteceu apenas quando abrimos a porta. Fizemos o check-in.
    Os lençóis tinham sido trocados mas o chão estavam um nojo, acho que tinha um bocado de pizza num canto. A porta da entrada e a porta da casa de banho estavam danificadas, como se tivesse levado com murros de alguém. Junto a minha cama, a parede, tinha salpicos de algo que parecia comida com molho de tomate. O cheiro difícil de descrever, cheirava a velho com algum ambientador a tentar desfarsar.
    Depois de irmos beber a cerveja, num bar com mais de 40 cerveja, em que nos dão uma pulseira e só pagamos o que consumimos, voltamos para casa, estava tão cansada que adormeci logo...

    Passado de uma hora, a Filipa acordou-me tinha sido toda picada por percevejos, estava cheia de babas no pescoço com uma comichão horrível, acendi a luz, ela tomou um anti estaminico, enchemos a minha cama de repelente e acabamos por dormir as duas na mesma cama.

    Passado um pouco, tive uma dor de cabeça parecia que a minha cabeça ia rebentar, provavelmente devido ao cansaço e o cheiro, tive que tomar um comprimido para as dores para voltar a conseguir dormir.

    No final eu até durmi bem ela que não

    San Luis Obispo

    October 24, 2016 in the United States

    A noite de Sao Luis Obispo foi provavelmente a pior noitede toda a viagem. Para compensar os 200 dls que pagamos a noite anterior eu resolvi fazer o booking de um Motel de beira de estrada. Juro para numca mais! O sitio era tirado dum filme de terror daqueles cheio de mortes e sangue! A recepcao era escura e sem
    Ninguem e para aparecer tinhas de tocar a campainha ( mesmo a filme de terror). La apareceu um sr. Indiano muito simpatico de Goa mas com ar duvidoso. O quarto era o 115 e numca mais me ei de esquecer de tal experiencia. O cheiro era horrivel, uma mistura de pó, com sujo... pessimo! Tinha um bocado de pizza de nao sei quantas semanas ao lado da minha cama que mais parecia a cabeca de um hamster ( ate hj fico sem saber o que era porque nao lhe toquei) as portas tinham murros marcados ( sabe-se la porque) ao lado da cama da gloria havia sujidade na parede aos montes ( ate hj ninguem conseguio identificar) e para finalizar a situacao fui completamente mordida ( outa vez, depois da saga em NY) por bed bugs aka percevejos. Nao durmi absolutamente nada, e mudeime para a cama da Gloria completamente vaporisada de anti insectos! A unica coisa boa desta noite foi o bar que fomos antes desta saga com algumas 50 cervejas diferentes em que te davam uma pulseira magnetizada e que podias servir o que querias que pagavas ao centilitro FUCKING PARADISE!

    Leuke dag in San Luis Obispo

    May 21, 2014 in the United States

    Een rustige nacht, wel weer wakker om 1,30 4,30 en 6,30 maar dan tot 8,45 terug ingeslapen, we hoorden alleen de vogeltjes.
    In dit hotel is geen ontbijt voorzien daarom gaan we naar buiten, we kiezen de eerste gelegenheid waar men breakfast serveert. Een alternatief koffiehuis, beetje artistiek. We kozen voor een breakfast bagel, havermoutpap en koffie.
    Daarna gingen we richting downtown San Luis Obispo, enkele blocks ver, en dat is best een eind weg. We hebben een hele dag om SLO te verkennen, jammer dat het weer niet zo goed is, 16° en zwaar bewolkt. De Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa was ons doel. Een missie die gesticht is in 1772, om de Chumash en Salinan indianen te bekeren. Ze zijn zeer katholiek en lijken voor ons op Mexicanen, de vrijwilliger in de kerk gift shop gaf deze uitleg. De kathedraal was zeer eenvoudig, geen goud en zilver maar gedecoreerd met eenvoudig geschilderde bloemen, en vooral groter dan we dachten. Er was ook een missieschool, een pastorij en een kerktuin.
    Na ons bezoek gingen we nog naar het historisch Chinatown district maar buiten een huis en een Chinees restaurant was er niets te zien. Terug in de missie konden we een budweiser en een coors drinken en een wandeling maken langs de San Luis Creek, zeg maar riviertje.
    Door de havermoutpap hadden we geen zin om middageten te nemen en wandelden we naar de winkelstraat: The Farmers Market. Een gezellige straat met winkels als Abercrombie & Finch, Mac en Sepora. Ook veel andere kledingwinkels, restaurantjes allé genoeg om de rest van de namiddag door te brengen.
    Op terugweg gingen we nog een wine tasting doen, ah ja we zitten midden in het Californische wijngebied. Onderweg met de wagen is dat te gevaarlijk, gezien de strenge alcoholwetten hier.
    Terug aan het motel heb ik de auto langs binnen gepoetst want hij was eigenlijk een beetje vies toen we hem kregen. De avond brachten we door met 3e rangs griezelfilms, lezen en schrijven.

    Shopping at San Luis Obispo

    July 11 in the United States

    Heute geht es groß Einkaufen, weil die Küste in tiefem Nebel hängt. Nur 1 km off the coast there was no fog left. Amazing!!!
    In Tjmax habe ich für 350 $ viel cooles Zeug gefunden. Lunch at Wholefoods yummy.
    Der Nebel hier ist creepy. Kaum verlässt man die Küste ist man in bright sunshine. Der Nebel wandert langsam über die Berge.
    Irene und ich haben im Nebel eine coole Wanderung an Strand bis zum nebelig angeben Rock gemacht.
