My mother and I are big concert goers.
- When one of our favorite bands tour we stalk their website and wait for them to come near us.
If the band is good enough, we will travel for them and make it a vacation. Recently my mother and I bought tickets for the Hella Mega tour that had Green Day, Weezer and Fall Out Boy playing. We are huge fans of all three of them and decided it was worth traveling. Most of the locations looked pretty boring but California stuck out like a diamond in the rough. We had the option of San Francisco or San Diego. I started looking around at what to do in each area and I liked San Diego. We started our trip flying into the city and seeing the show. After that amazing day of fun we moved north to see other parts of the state. My mother and I ended up spending some time in the LA and Hollywood area. We also took a few days in Santa Barbara. Obviously the concert was the highlight of the whole trip. My favorite location was Santa Barbara. We splurged on a good hotel and got facials in the morning. In the evening we had high end sushi in the city. Recreational cannabis is allowed in California. I had always wanted to try it but felt weird asking my mom. She suggested it since she has trouble sleeping. The two of us ended up popping into a cannabis dispensary and trying edibles. My mother said she slept like a baby and I loved the giddy feeling I got when trying an edible.
