Touring California

These are old photos of me and my hubby when we went to California 4 years ago. We had such a good time visiting my college friends there. We stayed in Stockton at the house of Lina, my best friend in college. We stayed there for 17 days, free board and lodging, wink! My friend and her hubby took us to the beautiful spots in California like the Golden Gate in San Francisco, the long and winding road at Lombard Street in SFO, the Universal Studios in Hollywood, and Lake Tahoe.My friend Lina wanted us to ride the Heavenly Gondola but it was closed that time because it was snowy and windy. So we went to Lake Tahoe and took some pics then we proceeded to Cesar's Palace in Lake Tahoe, Nevada.

We also visited one of our college friends in San Diego who is now in the navy and he took us to Sea World. All the entrance fees were taken care of by my friends but we treated them to lunch. So we saved money and we really had a good time there. Our navy friend wanted to take us to Tijuana, Mexico because it's just beyond the border of San Diego but I didn't have yet my green card that time so we didn't go. We just drove by and he showed us the border and across it is Tijuana. We had a grand time touring California from north to south. Hope to go back there someday.

Wow, did you go for a tourist visa or you are already a citizen that you just went there for a visit. How I wish I can go to the states as well, my greatest dream indeed.

Great pictures! Made me remember my trip to CA and NV too :) I've been to the same places you have, save for Lake Tahoe and Chula Vista.

So, have you been to Tijuana? If yes, how was it? :D

But the good thing is you had a great time with your friends. :)

I liked Las Vegas better than Los Angeles because there's so much to do in Las Vegas. But we love visiting NYC often than California probably because of the ease of transportation.

I like the photos you've shared. It reminded me of our vacation in California few years ago.
