Last weekend we went to Santa Cruz for a mini vacation during the weekend. It was nearing the end of summer and we hadn’t taken any vacations yet. In order to not feel sad and lame and have some stories to tell about our summer instead of working over time in the office and working on the couch and working in bed, I planned a short getaway with the help of airbnb. We found a farm kind of place tucked away in Aptos, about 10 minutes drive from downtown Santa Cruz where there were goats, emus and apples that are red on the inside. We rented bikes for a couple of hours on Saturday, and the handlebars fell off of his bike in about 10 minutes and we had to go back to change bikes. That, was the absolute highlight of the trip for me XD!
