Last week I wanted to go to Iceland. I woke up with enough time to catch the flight, but having not packed, still sick, and a bit broke, I just stayed home (What?! I stayed home?). A�The 3 combo just didn’t seem like a good start to a far off adventure, so my five days off turned me into a Southern California Tourist.

One of the perks of being a flight attendant, or working in the airline industry is that it’s normal to be on opposite corners of the earth between the span of morning and evening. A�Walking along Brooklyn Brownstone lined streets at sunrise, and running through the sand on a Southern California Beach at sunset. A�It’s not uncommon for one to hear some airline employees say, “Yeah, I went to Hong Kong for lunch.”

From Brooklyn

To the beach in one day.

Day trips to Paris, London, Rome? A�What a life?! A�Airline personnel almost mirrors the lifestyles of the rich and famous, minus the rich and famous part of course.A�I haven’t done anything as extravagant as a day trip to Europe…yet, but San Francisco for a few hours or a day in San Diego; not so far-fetched:)

During my week of being a Southern California tourist, San Diego was the destination of choice for a recent day off.

The San Diego Zoo

Also Check outA�Old TownA�andA�Little Italy. A�It costs $5 for a day pass on the public bus. A�It’s really easy to figure out, convenient, and fairly quick as far as California public transportation goes.

I actually just got to Iceland after all, so I can’t keep writing about Southern California. I have to look at the scenery here!
