Travelogue: Big Sur, California

So my first post on travel received a lot of praise. Everyone loved hearing about my vacation and enjoyed the pictures so much that I decided to create another travel related post on my blog. A little distraction from my nails. You can see my previous and first post in the Travelogue series here.

This time the destination is Big Sur in Central California. I have lived in California for almost 2 years now and have never been to Big Sur before. I have heard about its beauty and scenic drive along the coast so much that I decided it will be our next destination for travel.

I cannot even being to describe how beautiful Big Sur is. The scenic drive along on California State Route 1 along the Pacific Coast is breathtaking. Beautiful spots and turnouts for pictures gives you ample photo opportunity. The name "Big Sur" is derived from the original Spanish-language "el sur grande", meaning "the big south", or from "el paĆ­s grande del sur", "the big country of the south". Enough talking already? So now time for some pictures. Hope you like them.
