Hi! My (future) wife and I are currently looking for nice places to stay on our honeymoon in August! We're both classical musicians II play viola, she plays violin). I'm American, and she's Italian, but we live in Germany now because I have a job with an orchestra there, and she plays solo concerts and works with several different orchestras.
We're both quiet, relaxed people, and we like a bit of individuality (which is why we're not big fans of chain hotels). We'll stay up late talking over a glass of wine, but we don't really do the club/concert/bar thing so much. We'd love any guidance on things to do in the area, and maybe some general directions, but we're not looking for a tour guide!
We've never been to California, and haven't been back to the US for several years, so we figured we'd take a road trip through California, and see and do things that we've put off for a long time! We plan on snorkeling, swimming, lying on the beach, eating great food, and seeing some amazing scenery!
We'll just be getting a car, and staying in several places for a few nights, with visits to friends interspersed. We are both non-smokers, and though we LOVE animals, we will not be travelling with any. We will take your dog for a walk though, if you'd like, and we'll certainly play with the cat!
Hope to stay with you soon!
Chris and Vittoria
