We had to leave San Francisco very early on Wednesday morning to catch the Amtrak train to San Luis Obispo. The train had very large seats and were super comfortable. We also bought a shitload of food at Wholefoods, obviously. Time flew by pretty fast and we arrived in SLO in the afternoon.
Our host for the next two nights was Jesse - our first couchsurfing experience! He lives on a farm on top of the hill with a dog, a cat, chickens and goats. Cuteness overload!!
We spent the next day in Avila Beach and got some pretty bad sunburns, even though we had SPF 85!! Maybe the sun is too darn strong in California..
Every Thursday there's a Farmers Market in San Luis Obispo. We went there with Jesse and he showed us the coolest bars. Also, we ate every vegan dish we could find (vegan donuts, yummie). The day after we hung out at Pirate's cove, where the sign said "From this point onward you might encounter clothing optional bathers". Well, we have slightly tanned boobs now :)
We planned to take the Greyhound bus to Santa Barbara the same evening, but when we arrived at the bus station, we learned that our bus was extremely late. Meaning 5 hours!!! We thought about hanging around in a mall, but Jesse then thought "fuck it" and drove us all the way to Santa Barbara!! He was such a great host and now our total MVP of this trip.
