So the first trip I took in 2020, was a road trip I took with my friend Jacob Michael for my birthday. [My birthday is February 18th] And we drove up ON the day of my actual birthday.
I love celebrating my birthday in a new place every year. So if I am not on set on the day of my birthday – I like to travel!
The city of Solvang, CA is about an hour and a half north of Los Angeles. Solvang is a little dutch city inland from Santa Barbara. There is also a nice mission there – Mission San Inez.
The day we went the weather was BEAUTIFUL. Not too hot, not too cold. [Sometimes it rains on my birthday.] I was also not aware of how much wine tasting you can do in Solvang. So to know me, is to know that I LOVE wine tasting – and when I got there and realized there was wine tasting on literally every corner, I knew I had made the right decision to come to Solvang!
Also, I need to note that Solvang has a great small town vibe. There is a small park at one end of town and the mission at the other. Plus restaurants and shopping! And also – and I was excited about this the most – an escape room!
I had ALWAYS wanted to do an escape room and the opportunity had never presented itself…so my friend and I jumped at the chance. And, just for the record, even with just the two of us – we escaped!
I only spent the day there because I was having a nice birthday party in the evening with all of my friends, but I would definitely, definitely, definitely take another trip to Solvang. I would love to go and take more pictures!
