A collection of photographs from a trip to San Francisco I took this weekend. It was a packed long weekend filled with sightseeing and plenty of mouthwatering food. I was also finally able to cross off another item on my bucket list: to ride a cable car! It was so much fun going up and down San Francisco's famous huge hills (by trolley of course, not by foot).
From top to bottom:
+ Checking out the Golden Gate bridge from Lands End
+ Climbing up a massive hill to get to Ghirardelli Square for some ice cream
+ Entrance to Chinatown
+ My first cable car ride
+ The best brunch I have ever experienced at Mission Beach Cafe. Gigantic French toast along with shrimp and dungeness crab eggs benedict enjoyed over hot cocoa and tea.
+ The painted ladies. You might recognize these from the opening credits of "Full House".
+ Gourmet fried chicken (I never thought I'd ever say 'gourmet' and 'fried chicken' together) and a fruity dessert at Wayfare Tavern. Best. Fried. Chicken. Ever.
+ Unique public transport
+Lombard Street and some Sea Lions chilling at Fisherman's Wharf
+ Alcatraz night tour, featuring a creepy stint in their hospital wing
+ Breakfast of smoked salmon on bread at the Ferry Building Marketplace
+ Accidentally stumbling onto a hiking trail at Lands End while exploring the city
+ A glorious view of the city at Dolores Park
I still can't believe how much we packed into four days! Although exhausting at times, it was such a fun and exciting trip to take. Stay tuned for part two!
