Lodi to San Jose

The day that we had to leave our friends in Lodi had arrived, still one great breakfast together and off we went






Riding out of the Holck kingdom, a place that had been home for us for the last 2 weeks







We took a narrow , twisty mountain road that Doug had suggested, to get to San Jose; great ride














And then we got to San Jose where we met Ben (DrBenny) and his wife Amber and his sister. We interchanged messages with Ben a few years back on his way down to Tierra de Fuego, but we had never met personally.
What a great bunch of people they are ! They took us for lunch to a Vietnamese restaurant and after that we walked out to the nearby Apple campus . And obviously we had our picture taken in front of the place where Steve Jobs used to do miracles





Ben helped me formatting my external hard drive so that it would work with my Mac , that means he did it and I watched






They prepared a really nice dinner for us, great food and great conversation









Later on we still went to a frozen yoghurt place






An other great day in the office


Thank you guys for your hospitality, we really enjoyed the short time that we shared

Kudos to Ben for hosting you.

If you get down here soon enough I might be persuaded to ditch work and ride in Baja for a few days.

Yosemite

Probably the last National Park on our way down south was Yosemite; what a great place and what a nice way to see it: with our friend and guide, Doug

We just spent two great days here at Rogers and Diane's home . We had some great conversations, exchange of travel experiences, we got a guided tour to San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay (to find my Life is Good sticker)
It's just awesome the kind of people we are meeting ...couldn't get any better
Thank you guys for a great time and all the best for your upcoming journeys


At the famous gum wall in San Luis Obispo







And wherever we go, there is always good food around
