Ultimate Big Sur Trip: One Day on the Road

Olivia Gallucci Big Sur trip photos (2022)

🌺 Introduction 

I traveled to Big Sur with my friend Jimmy He during my first week in California (22 May 2022). I enjoyed it a lot, so I decided to publish the itinerary. Jimmy works at Tesla, so he was able to check-out a Model Y; it was a great way to cut down on gas. On to some photos of my Big Sur trip!
