    California is a fun place to visit, the difference between the northern part and the south is incredible, the north is stunning in is ruggedness, the vastness of it’s forests and country side. The San Francisco bay area, with it’s history, waterfront eateries, not to forget the Golden Gate, are all experiences one wants to take in, memories to cherish. Going north on the 101, driving through Santa Rosa and along the coast is an awesome experience, watching the waves hit the rocks, wide open beaches with nobody on them, was incredible to see and enjoy. One does have to read the warning signs that are posted in regards to undercurrents and danger zones. I would go back to California in a heart beat.

    This sounds like a terrific opportunity! I have been to California a couple times (one flight to San Fran; one road trip), so this would be new territory for me to discover and share.

    I was a hitch hiker type of traveller for over 10 years – that is pretty much what I did – since I lived on the charity of the people and nature – I decided to amplify my freedom with poetry – as something I could give back – as a sort of proof and gift and explanation

    My adventures have taken me
    Down many a twisted road.
    Wild trails have called my name,
    “Grab your pack and lift your load.”
    Swollen rivers have tossed my boats
    And tested my very nerve.
    I yell to my mates, “Come on, let’s go
    And see what’s around the curve.”
