Prior to our trip to Europe, we spent about a month in Upstate New York, spending time with family and preparing ourselves for the time we will be abroad.
The weather has been cold with a lot of rain, but we managed to get some sunny days that allowed us to spend some times outdoors exploring. We took advantage of the time in Adirondacks and visited a bit of the area.
There is no doubt about it, San Diego is a city meant for spending time outside. The weather, the scenery, the locations - all aid in leading an outdoorsy lifestyle. Apart from the the typical city scene, there are many outdoor "wild" areas in San Diego where one can leisurely walk, hike, bike or even run. All these areas are spread across the city and they each come with different "features" and landscapes.
A few weeks ago we left San Diego, California, which we called home for 6 years, in order to explore more of the world and ourselves. While waiting for our upcoming trip to Europe, we wanted to visit Upstate New York, specifically the Adirondack mountains area.
We found a much different situation here than we expected. We left what was almost summer weather and came to late winter, with slight signs of spring, aka cold weather and pretty much a grey sky. It's been quite a change from what we've known, as we haven't experienced real seasons since moving to SoCal, and boy does the body forget about the cold when living in warmer climates.
