The distance between Los Angeles and San Francisco can be covered in a little more than an hour by plane; by car it takes at least 8-9 hours (depending on traffic), maybe even longer. In order to get to Sebastopol, which is situated north of San Francisco, one has to add even one or two more hours of driving time.
So, what to do? Go by plane or go by car?
Our trunk brims with Angel Essences, Symbol Cards and books, and there is also plenty of personal luggage. Transport all of that by plane? Impossible! This is why we decided to cover the distance with a rental car.
The best thing about it is that for the most part the route runs alongside the Pacific, which is why Route No. 1, as it is called, is by no means an inside tip amongst travellers anymore. Thus, we as well enjoyed the marvellous view over the sea – but we still collapsed into our beds exhausted in the evening.
