My travel tale continues now from San Diego to Bakersfield. We spent 3 days in San Diego (one of which we spent a day drive to Mexico). From there, we took a bus (yes, a bus) that would take us back to Los Angeles then to Bakersfield. It took us 6 hours to get to Bakersfield. A lot of our friends asked us why we took the bus. We must have a horrible time, they said. But hey, it wasn’t that bad. The only thing was the waiting time in LA bus terminal… otherwise, it was okay. Going to Bakersfield was like passing through a desert place. I didn’t take pictures though coz it was going to be dark and I didn’t want to keep opening my hand bag to take out my camera. Just wanted to be careful.

When we visited our friends in San Diego, California, they told us that it only took 20 minutes to go to Mexico border. Husband and I were ecstatic to know. So we took a day drive to Mexico.
With its iconic red turrets piercing the taut horizontal lines of an azure California skyline, the Hotel del Coronado radiates with a confidence of gracious Victorian splendor that is without equal.
Built in 1888, this classic beachfront respite has long been heralded as one of America’s most beautiful beach resorts. A pronouncement underscored by its designation as a National Historic Landmark in 1977.
But to truly understand the wonder that is the Hotel del Coronado, you have to experience this legendary San Diego, California resort for yourself. So take a look around.
