More free hotel waffles for breakfast in San Francsico!
Then, we were out of that town…
And on our way back to LA.
I was pretty excited about that fact – more LA!
I guess I’ve sort of fallen in love with that city. It just seems like something is always happening there.
So knowing that I was going to be able to spend another night there before I headed home, well, let’s just say the 6-hour drive back from San Fran to LA went a little bit faster.
It was a sad drive, though, going back.
I don’t like going back! And going back to LA was exciting, but it also marked the first leg of our return journey home.
I wasn’t ready to leave! I didn’t want to go! Say it isn’t so!
Sometimes you have to pull yourself together a little bit, and make sure you’re focusing on the present. Which is what I did, and then I realized that I still had three whole days left of my adventures.
I’m going to skip telling you about the 6-hour drive, which was uneventful, but I do want to describe me attempting to drive up what must have been the steepest road in San Francisco, and possibly in all of California.
My car wouldn’t go! I had to floor the gas in order to get up that hill. And, to make the situation even better – there was a stop sign at the top! So, I had to stop my car once I got there, and then attempt to turn off of the road without rolling backwards and smashing into the car behind me.
Sure, I pulled it off smoothly (with minimum honking from the car behind me), but it was quite a stressful and interesting experience!
And then the whole 6-hour drive thing happened.
And then, we were partying at the Holiday Inn!
Not really. But the room was really nice! I love a good, cheap, quality hotel room! That will make or break your night as a traveler. (Wow, look at me pretending I’m a seasoned traveler now! After a week! Ha!)
Then, we were off! Guess where? To get food. Typical.
As everyone and their mother had told me about In N Out burger, that was our fancy restaurant of choice for our last night in LA.
When we pulled in to In N Out, there must have been 30 cars in the take out line, waiting to order – and that many people inside the building itself, both ordering and waiting for their food. So, I thought, this place must be good!
I ordered a number one – cheeseburger, fries, medium drink.
And, honestly, I didn’t get it.
I still don’t! Why is In N out so popular? Jack in the box is way better! Yet, there was not a mile-long line at Jack in the box. Am I missing something here? I really feel like I am! Sheesh, just when I thought I was beginning to understand LA.
I mean, In N out was good, but not great. It just tasted… well… like a hamburger! Ah! Help, somebody! I’m so confused!
Anyway, then we headed back to the Holiday Inn for the night. I really like saying “Holiday Inn” because it just reminds me of that one song. You know the one.
