From Newport Beach we drove to Cambria. It's a pleasant drive along the Coast. Between Hearst Castle and Piedras Blancas Lighthouse you can find Elephant Seals Colony, there are thousands and thousands! They make funny noises, like to play in the ocean and to lay down in the sun. It was one of my top moments in this road trip, it's not everyday you watch elephant seals in their wildlife and for free! You can't touch them or feed them or disturbe in general, but it's good enough just to watch them. In Cambria we stayed in Hostelling International Hostel, the only hostels company you will find along the way and they are pricey (more or less $35 for a dorm). This one in Cambria is special because is in a 155 years old house and it's so cozy out there. Breakfast and Wifi included, yey!

San Francisco is magical.It is the city of rich people(being the most expensive state of the US). It is sophisticated, cosmopolitan, often foggy and infamous for its high priced real estate.This water-framed city's most recognizable sights include the Golden Gate Bridge to steep streets, cable cars, and salty Fisherman's Wharf, but San Francisco is also home to world-class museums as well.I travelled from San Jose to San Francisco in the public train because taking an Uber was really expensive. It took me almost 2 hrs to reach there.Because I was only there for a day I choose to see the best possible things I could cover.
