<< San Francisco >>

This week i'm going to share with you guys a little more about our trip to California.
Starting with the amazing city of San Francisco!!!

<< Step one >>
If you're going to San Francisco be sure to stay in San Francisco. NOT San Francisco...It's close to it....but it will let you down!!
It will break your heart...

That was our only mistake...staying in Oakland opposed to San Francisco.
We stayed in Oakland because we were flying out of the Oakland Airport...
And it just seemed more reasonable at the time.

But if we could do it again we'd stay in San Francisco. 
Somewhere around Union Square or Fisherman's Wharf.
But not Oakland...
Did i mention we didn't like Oakland....because we didn't!!!!!!
Moving on...

We had the MOST magical day in San Francisco.
I wish we could have spent more time there.

<< Step two >>
Stay longer than we did!!
We were in Oakland/San Francisco for 3 nights.
We spent one full day in San Francisco but the other day we went to Santa Cruz
and then the last day we were stuck in Oakland because of the Public Transport Strike.

San Francisco needs way WAY more time than one measly day.
Ok so that's another thing we didn't plan well...
It's such a cool city and i know for a fact there was SO MUCH
we didn't get to see :(

But no worries, Tom and I will be back there again one day...and for longer!!

We got off the Train at Embarcadero and went over to all of the Piers.
We ended up walking from Embarcadero all the way to Fisherman's Wharf
and Alcatraz, and that's where we stopped for lunch.

Then we kept walking because i was not leaving San Francisco without seeing
the Golden Gate Bridge...I was fully prepared to throw a fit if i didn't see it...
Tom could see the fit coming so he did what any good boyfriend would do.
He rented us bikes so we could bike to the bridge and get there faster :) :)

It was such a genius idea because not only was it faster but it was so much fun!!!
If we had walked it would have taken us another hour to even get close enough to really see it!
The bikes got us there in about 20 minutes and we were able
to bike up to the up close and moment of my life.

The Golden Gate Bridge is up there with Eiffel Tower for me.
It's such an iconic view and i was just so happy being there with Tom.

Here's a list of 5 things to see and do in San Francisco

We can't wait to get back and see San Francisco again!!
Hopefully these tips help you out if you're planning a trip there in the future!!

Have a great Monday!!


  1. San Francisco is one of my favourite towns in America. Glad you enjoyed it! xx

  2. I've lived 5 years in SF and love this city! Check out this book as well: Great travel story on the best city of the word!

  3. So fun! We are heading to SF this weekend (only 3 days, sad face!) and I'm scouring the interwebs at the last minute for ideas. I really like the idea of renting a bike to get closer to the bridge! Sounds fantastic!
