Final Installment of Eric D. Goodman’s Travel Essay Series Meeting Steinbeck Montecito, California, just outside Santa Barbara, is practically paradise.

Installment 5 of Eric D. Goodman’s Travel Essay Series The Worst Commute Ever My day begins with a bit of apprehension and unpleasantness. It’s the damn rental car.
