I finally conquered my fear and ‘travelled’ on my own! Well… sort of… I travelled on my own from Toronto to the SFO airport ha! At the airport I was met by a friend (who I’ll refer to as Janet) 🙂 It was still a milestone for me, and just as I predicted, I got lost at the SFO airport. Somehow I found myself waiting at the Departures area, when she was waiting for me at the Arrivals area. Hopefully I’ll never have to navigate my way alone at London’s Heathrow airport.
Anyways, I spent 4 days in San Francisco and I’d say it was the perfect amount of days to explore the city. Luckily for me, Janet had a car, so transportation and hotel was something I did not have to worry about. I did some research, but had no set itinerary for this vacation. As long as I got to see the Golden Gate Bridge, I was a happy camper. However, I got to see so many beautiful sights of San Francisco than I could have imagined.
San Francisco has made me in love with coast lines and ocean/lake views. We saw so many in this trip. The following are some of the beautiful sights I had the pleasure of seeing:
We were thinking about visiting Monterey and do some whale watching, but figured we’ve seen enough water for the week, and checked out some structures instead. We went to see the Painted Ladies, which were so beautiful. I liked how you could see the contrast between the modern grey city at the back and the old fashioned pastel houses at the front. Below are a few of the other places that we visited:
So those were basically the main places I went to see. I visited a few other places that were nearby to where my friend lived which was at the suburbs of San Francisco. I had an awesome time during this trip. I didn’t really try any food that Sf is known for. Maybe I could have tried something at Pier 39, but it just never crossed my mind. The only thing I was dying to eat really was a burger from In-n-Out Burger since we don’t have that in Toronto. Double double burger animal style = yummmm. The food from Google was pretty good too. I miss San Francisco and Janet alot, but I’m sure this is not going to be the last time I’ll be paying San Francisco a visit 🙂
PS. FYI to my personal friends reading this who live under a rock *coughruscough*: I left my heart in San Francisco is a song by Tony Bennet that I thought would be cool as a title! Lol
