We spend the first days of our holiday trip in New York. Early in the morning of the 20th of May we flew to San Francisco. The flight from New York to San Francisco was good and with 6 hours not too long. From San Francisco we started our West Coast Road Trip through California towards San Diego along the Highway Nr. 1. My travelogue I wrote is a summary of the first three days of our Road Trip along the west coast.
We rent a Midsize SUV in San Francisco at Alamo. Our first overnight stay was in Monterey. On our secound day we booked a hotel in Sanata Barbara. The third hotel was booked in Palm Springs so far.
I will update the travelogue as soons as I have time to upload a few pictures and to write a few sentences about the sights we visited.

Today we planned to visit the following sights on our trip through the Bay Area.

We booked our motel in Monterey for the first night.
I did the first pictures at the Google headquarters in Mountain View.
The complex looks for visitors very nice and modern. Only one thing was strange. I counted only four car charging station for EVs… Google is just a normal company I would say…
