GUEST BLOG / By Adam Lottes, PillartoPost.org Travel Writer--Taking a day trip, a few hours away from the rough and tumble of daily life, is exhilarating and overflows with excitement. A chance to escape our nine to five and our established responsibilities. Many of us favor trips to the beach letting the sun color us darker and the sand find its way into every crevice and fold of fabric. Others prefer a day in Balboa Park exploring the museums bursting with heritage, history and hidden treasures of an age long gone.
