New Year Road Trip & Wearing Bikini in 50 Degree Rain!

In 2002, I took a last minute road trip to central California on New Year's Eve and had a fabulous time. I have not returned to central Cali since. So this year, I decided to do another road trip, and my good travel buddy Cherisse came along with me. Cherisse and I went to Hawaii in 2006 with 3 other ladies, and we had a blast. We had so much fun on this road trip, and this will go down as another unforgettable trip in our books.

We first stopped by Solvang, a Danish town nestled in the mountains along the coast. I haven't been here in over 10 years. We walked around and wandered into a bakery with amazing pastries called Mortensen's. We went for the chocolate eclair and their raspberry and cream cheese stripe. They were excellent! The only words that came out of Cherisse's mouth the whole time was, "Oh my God, oh my God." I couldn't stop laughing!

Beautiful architecture in Solvang.
