On the road with Marina and Kristian
Kristian's back with another update from his travels up the coast...

Well Marina and my great adventure continued from San Diego into the huge metropolitan area of Los Angeles. For our small-city Berkeley ways, we were definitely two fish out of water.

I must say Marina did quiet well managing me through the vast highway systems and interconnecting city streets. We did end up accidentally driving onto a movie set, but I'll take the blame for that one. Throughout our travels we've seen a lot of smiling faces, a couple of celebrities, met some amazing people, filled up with Bio-Diesel at an awesome $3.67 a gallon, saw some great beaches and managed an Earth Day celebration, Surfriders Hall of Fame Celebration, and a little league game.

Next, we travel up the coast out of the mega-metropolis of L.A. and into a mellower path through Ventura, Santa Barbara and Monterey. We are always looking for some out-of-the-way café, family-owned market, or heck a weekend country road that's off the beaten path, so help us people, guide us into your small town shop.

I leave you with a travel quotation from one of my favorite writers, Jawaharial Nehru:

"We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open."
