ROAD TRIP / LOS ANGELES TO OREGON

IMG_3931

For our winter holiday, Andre and I embarked on a road trip from Los Angeles to Sisters, Oregon to spend Christmas with my family. We plotted out a two day food and drink adventure for our trip north. Breakfast at The Padre Hotel in Bakersfield, famous chicken pot pie in Fresno, wine tasting in Lodi, chocolate tasting in Sacramento, and much more. It was an amazing first leg of our road trip and I can’t wait for the second half as we head south and make our way to San Francisco, Point Reyes, Big Sur, and Carmel.
