Summer Getaway – Sofia, Bulgaria

Sofia is the capital and the biggest city in Bulgaria. However, compared to most European capitals it is relatively small and most of the popular tourist attractions are located one next to another. We do not have an Eiffel tower like Paris, nor do we have a Colosseum, but still our capital is a beautiful Read More

San Diego, California – Top 5 Things To Do

It is no coincidence that San Diego is called “America’s finest city”. I have been there several times and it never fails to impress me. Just 2 hours south of LA, with unique landscapes and miles of coastal lanes San Diego has something for everyone.


 

1.Beautiful nature and hiking trails




San Diego is located near the Laguna mountains, meaning you can find a lot of trails for hiking, all of them exposing breathtaking views. Most of the trails are not very steep nor very hard, so you do not need any special equipment. The only thing you cannot go without is water, since the heat is very unforgiving especially during summer mid-days. One of the best and most famous ones is the Torrey Pines hike, which is also a state natural reserve. Another one, which I strongly recommend, starts at the Cabrillo National Monument (the picture above was taken there). The monument is one of San Diego must-sees, because it provides a stunning view of the bay, the Coronado island and you can even catch a glimpse of Downtown San Diego. On the other side of the hill you can just admire the ocean and the sensation of tranquillity it creates. Alongside the western coast of the area you can find tide pools, but we’ll get to them later. You can reach the monument by car, so I personally wouldn’t choose this path for hiking – my idea of hiking doesn’t really involve highways – but there’s a two-mile hiking trail that goes down the eastern slope of the hill. From there you can get the same view as above while enjoying Cali’s nature.

Tip: Another great way to enjoy the beautiful view of San Diego Bay is on a boat – soaking in the warm sunlight with the ocean breeze in your hair while sailing by the skyscrapers is Downtown SD. If you’re interested in charter service for the Bay (and not only in San Diego area), here are the best captains in town.
