What are you listening to when you're cruising
around from Monterey to Carmel to Big Sur?
I listen to a band called Magnet. They're from Norway. Great
driving music. I always make mix CDs and do mixes on my iPod, so
it'll be everything from Joni Mitchell to Magnet.
Where do you stop for a snack while you're on
The Big Sur River Inn General Store. They make really great
burritos. Ryan and I, when we stock up for the hotel room, always
grab a burrito from there. It's quite close to Post Ranch. They
also have amazing chocolate muffins.
Any final thoughts on the area?
There's really no time of the year that I would recommend that
people not go to the Monterey Bay area. In the winter, it's just
more about sweaters and hot drinks and keeping warm, and then in
the summer, it's kind of a jubilant summer experience. There's no
time of year that would be a bad time to go.
