After a year of hectic schedules and tight deadlines, I have finally decided to take a break and am planning to go to San Diego for a week long vacation. Two things top my list- beaches and shopping. I just wanna go sit under an umbrella and watch the blazing orange sun go down. Plus I also have a plan to get a tattoo done at the Mission Beach (on a recommendation of my friend). And yes, I wanna buy antique items from Old Town, Little Italy and do lots of shopping at the major shopping centers. As shopping and beaches top my itinerary, I have booked my stay at the California Suites Hotel after a little bit research. From this hotel, beaches, Old town and various shopping places are nearby so that would convenient for me as I don't want to waste much time on commuting on my vacation. Now just waiting to shop till I drop and relax at the beach. Pure bliss!
