So it’s official. My birthday travel plans are all booked!!!! It’s my birthday and I’ll travel if I want to…right?!
People always tell me I “travel too much” is that even possible? I’ve definitely slowed down in compassion to me circa 2013 haha so can I live? Let me live!
Well… Let’s start with what I’ve already mentioned. I’ve written about my Coachella plans on here (many, many times…excitement at an ultimate high) and since it is right around my birthday I’ve decided to make a really fun trip out of it. I had it all planned out but I have finally just confirmed my hotel accommodations and flight for my last destination!
This is what my itinerary is looking like:
April 14–> April 16 Venice beach, Los Angeles, California
April 16–> April 20 Indio, Palm Springs, California for Coachella
April 20–> April 24 Phoenix, Arizona
April 24–> April 26 San Fransisco, California
I honestly can’t even think straight! I’ve been to LA many times but somehow I find myself freaking out over going back. We rented a little cute house on Venice beach through airbnb because we’ve done the Hollywood thing so many times and just want to enjoy the beach vibes. We are renting a car and driving into Palm Springs where we have rented a house between all of us which was also through airbnb. It’s in Indio and says its “on fair grounds” which feels like an exaggeration but I’ll take it for the simple fact that it’ll be much easier to get my drunk self to and from the festival haha after all the chaos and ridiculousness I am flying to Phoenix to visit a friend of mine! She has a condo out there so I’ll be staying with her. I’m excited because I’ve never been to Phoenix and what’s better than having someone familiar with the place show you around? I’ll get to skip all the stuff I wouldn’t like to do because she knows just what I am fond of and what I dislike. On the 24th we are flying to San Fran and this is what I’m most excited for (I lied, Coachella is at the top of that list) but I am certainly looking forward to seeing that beautiful Golden Gate Bridge up close and personal. We are staying at the Hilton in Union Square which from what I hear is in a great location. Since i’m an “Expedia +” member I was treated with a really good price for this stay. Usually it is $449 American per night but I got it for $225 Canadian per night. It definitely pays off to use the same outlet for all of my travels because I get great rewards from it. Well, I already have visuals of the pictures I want/need while I’m out there haha it’s also so very exciting because 3/4 places I’m going to, I’ve never been to. Add in that it’s mine and my friends birthday and I guess you can say that it’s a recipe for the most perfect time ever!
Does anyone have any recommendations of things I need to do/see while I’m out there. I am fairly familiar with Los Angeles (still open to suggestions though) but suggestions everywhere else would be of great help! Does anyone have any vacations planned?
Ps. Didn’t use United for any of these travels for they are the most unprofessional airline of all time and I advise everyone to avoid them if they can! 🙂
