Is it possible to be in love with a location on a map? I am beginning to think so.
My passionate love affair with Big Sur began a few years ago, when my friend, Rebecca, insisted on introducing us. Totally one of those “I just know you two will be perfect together” sort of blind date set-up situations. Because a) Rebecca knows me better than anyone else on earth and b) I’m always up for a road trip, I set out into the great unknown, butterflies in my stomach (which may or may not have been car sickness… Thank you, Highway 1).
Long story short, she was right. I discovered a place with coastal charm, picturesque scenery, rolling hills, towering mountains and a sunshine/fog mix that keeps you guessing. Basically, my soulmate.
