Postcards from Travel Near and Far by Jia-Rui

Dear ——–,

Last weekend, we planned a little getaway to the Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego. Bryan got us the “All Play, No Pay” package, where we had the choice of free 50-minute massages, golf rounds or dinners with our room. He figured out that massages were the best deal and I have to say the one I got was probably among the best I’ve ever had. Spa treatments also came with access to the saline pool. So I spent a lazy couple of hours floating in the water and reading Thread of the Silkworm under the cabana. Since we had two days there, Bryan also squeezed in a round on the PGA-level golf course, where he got par on a couple of holes. (I drove him around on the golf cart and ate snack mix.) We didn’t think we could also afford dinner at the award-winning El Bizcocho, but we still had a really nice meal at the Veranda. A lavender citrus mojito started it off right.

I'm a journalist based in Los Angeles who has always said that writing postcards for a living would be a dream job. The posts -- short enough to fit on an actual postcard -- chronicle recent travels near and far. I could blab on about being inspired by epistolary novels, the short poems of Emily Dickinson, and the New Yorker's "Talk of the Town" pieces, but I'll just say that I'm aiming to give you a sense of flavor of a place without boring you to death. Wish you were here!
