Winter break trip

For winter break, my parents and I will be spending a few days in Vegas and a few days in California (San Francisco, maybe LA, claims my father). I’ve already made a huge list of places I want to visit. It’s impossible to hit them all, but the Jelly Belly Factory must happen. I was in San Francisco with friends last spring break, and no one would go with me then, but I’m sure Mom and Dad will be happy to go along.

  • Jelly Belly Factory tour
  • Scharffen Berger tour
  • Vosges chocolates
  • Charles Chocolates
  • LA Farmer’s Market
  • Joseph Schmidt
  • Cocoa Bella
  • Citizen Cake
  • Lotta’s Bakery
  • Munchies
  • Chocolates a la Carte
  • Chuao Chocolatiers

I think my parents underestimated how long it takes to drive from place to place. LA to San Francisco should be a day-long drive on its own, and we’re only going to be away for a week total.

Oh well. I’ll be happy if we manage to hit just a few of the places on my list. Hopefully Mom and Dad will never realize that their idea of a nice family vacation will actually become “Rosa tries to get Mom and Dad to buy her lots of expensive candy”.
