Summer in Santa Barbara

Isn’t it strange that UCSB is dubbed as the “party school,” yet once I stepped into Santa Barbara, all I feel and see are tranquility and a relaxed lifestyle that one envies. I must have very eclectic taste because I love the hustle and bustle of big cities like New York and San Francisco as much as the small town feel of Santa Barbara and beyond. That just means I have the whole world at my feet and there’s more to explore right? 😉

We saw many cute ponies and goats everywhere and couldn’t help but stop to pet and watch them play.

I remember my sister telling me about a u pick berries around Solvang so I pulled out my trusty Yelp app to look for the closest location. Morrell Nut & Berry Farm was only a few miles from where we were so we rolled up our sleeves and lived the farm life for a few hours. Ok well not really, we basically roamed around the farm and picked a couple boxes of raspberries and blackberries but it was fun! Not to mention that the blackberries were so delicious, wish I picked more than just one box!
