Ever since deciding that I want to move to San Diego next year, I realized that I wanted to go there in person so that I could do some apartment hunting. I asked my good friend, Marisa, if she would come with me to help me out and we made plans to meet there. Here's a quick recap of how the trip went.
I took Thursday off work, so I was able to fly into San Diego early in the day. Marisa worked that day so she flew in later that night. When I arrived at the airport I picked up my rental car and headed to our hotel, which was the Sheraton in Mission Valley. I had made plans to have dinner with my family that night, so I went to their house and spent some time with them. Next it was time for me to go pick up Marisa at the airport. Once she arrived we waited for her bag to come, which seemed to take forever! After waiting a while we got her bag and headed back to the hotel.
Friday was our first full day of apartment hunting. I had already called the week before and made appointments at each property, so we had seven scheduled for Friday. In the end we skipped three of them because we were told they are all undergoing construction which would be disruptive for me since I work from home. The other four properties we saw were nice. We took lots of pictures and notes so that we could remember each one later.
Saturday and Sunday were also full of apartment hunting. All together we saw twelve properties in three days. I'm glad we ruled out some ahead of time because I'm not sure we would have had the energy to see all nineteen places I had scheduled! Here are some pictures from the properties that I really liked.
So those are some of the amazing properties we saw during the trip. It wasn't all business though, we did manage to do a couple of fun things. On Sunday morning we headed to La Jolla and saw the coast. It was really foggy, but still beautiful. Also, my cousin had her birthday celebration at Ski Beach so we went and hung out for a while. I could definitely see myself doing that on any given weekend once I live there!
So that's how our trip to California went. I am super excited that I'm one step closer to moving there!
