One of my favorite cities and travel destinations in the world is San Francisco, California. I would move there today, if everything didn’t cost a million dollars. No. Like. Literally. We totally looked up the real estate prices and oh oh oh my. Any who, we (Eric and my two friends Natalie and Nicole) spent a marvelously rainy and chilly 4 days in ole San Fran. So enjoy my travel diary San Fransisco and some iPhone pics.
Day 1: Golden Gate Bridge & Fisherman’s Wharf
We flew in early Saturday morning. This means I had to wake up at 4:30 am. That is an ungodly hour. Jesus does not bless that time of day. He just doesn’t. We didn’t want to waste our only non-rainy day, so we walked the Golden Gate bridge. Because thats what you do when you are a tourist in San Fransisco. Yes, the runners hate you. Sure, the bikers despise you. Okay, it’s super windy and a tiny bit scary. But you have to. It’s important. Alright, we didn’t even make it half way across. Remind me to stretch thoroughly before attempting long walks.
We also explored Fisherman’s Wharf. Delicious sea food (I’ve heard). Lots of cute little shops. Tons of entertaining dudes on the street. We saw a one man band playing Johnny Cash, a magic show and a elderly gentleman playing some sort of two-stringed instrument. And of course, the famous sea lions.
Day 2: Muir Woods & China Town
Get your rain boots. Put on your ponchos. Grab that umbrella. Today is going to be a wet adventure in the redwoods. We tracked our way through these hug, old trees and then had some good food in China town.
Day 3: Rained out & Bay Bridge
Sometimes, you happen to be in San Fransisco and it’s like the rainstorm of the year. On that day you spend a lot of time in your hotel room watching movies, eating fast food and playing The Simpsons on your iPad. When you get tired of that, you take a car ride back and forth over the Bay Bridge just for fun.
Day 4: Napa Valley & Wine
No one in the right mind travels to San Fransisco and skips Napa Valley. It is beautiful and there’s wine. Win Win.
