Last week AJ and I took a trip to San Francisco. It was seriously a blast. I had never been to the area before and let me tell you, that place is a world all its own. I was constantly amazed at how many people live in such a small area and all the amazing things there are to do!
We visited little cafe’s in the morning for egg sandwiches, grabbed nutella crepes whenever we got the chance, and squeezed in as much site-seeing as we possibly could all the while walking about a million miles everywhere every day.
We saw the crooked road on Lombard Street, Alamo Square with the Painted Ladies, and Ghiradelli Square where you can find the most scrumptious ice cream treats.
My absolute favorite thing that we did was rent bicycles and cruise along the Bay Bridge to Sausalito. (It reminded me of the time we went to Holland and rode bikes everywhere.) When we finally coasted into Sausalito (nearly 2 hours later!) the main streets and shops were flooded with tourists and other bikers like ourselves. Luckily, we dipped into a cute little Mexican restaurant, Copita, and filled up on carnitas and guacamole.
After eating we decided to venture a little further into the town and were amazed to discover how quiet and quaint the city was once you got away from the crowds and tourist boutiques. A few hours later, we hopped on the ferry with our bikes and boated across the water back to San Francisco where we explored the Fisherman’s Wharf and Ferry Building.
It was such fun and an excellent way to spend the day. If you are ever in the area, I would highly recommend experiencing the adventure for yourself.
