I spent 10 days in Southern California at the beginning of June of 2010 and this is what I have to say – I totally get the hype. Californians are known as being super braggy and in your face about how awesome California is, and the thing is, they are right! Every once in a while I day dream of packing it all in, going to California and being a beach bum. Learn to surf, eat fish tacos every day, be on the ocean…sigh. This cold fall Toronto weather (and the winter ahead) ain’t helping!
