A few weeks ago some of my colleagues asked me, if I wanted to come to San Francisco with them in November. I asked Flo, we both agreed as we could need a little vacay and booked our flights. Two of my colleagues flaked last minute, because they couldn’t leave work, but we still boarded our plane in Long Beach as a group of four on Thursday. We arrived to the famous rainy and windy city after a 45 minute flight and started our first day with a little walk around Union Square.
Our friend who we are here with lived in San Francisco for 4 years, so yesterday we took full advantage of her knowledge of the city and walked around the whole day. She took us to Chinatown, treated us to a little italian snack in North Beach (go there, if you like Italian food) and walked us to Fisherman’s Wharf. We let the boys have some fun in the Museum Mechanic (it’s an oldschool arcade with a ton of things to try and have fun with) and got a crab showder as a little afternoon snack.
Flo and I have been here before, but having someone with you who knows the city and shows you only the best spots, makes you fall in love with it all over again. After walking around in the brightest sunshine for the whole day, we went to the Buena Vista CafÃ©, which serves traditional Irish Coffee and is something you shouldn’t miss when you visit San Francisco.
Our way home took us over some really steep Hills (including the Russian Hill), but the view of Fisherman’s Wharf and Alcatraz at nighttime was totally worth it!
I’ll let some of the pictures speak for now and will be back with more tips and nice spots you should definitely visit when you come to San Francisco! Oh and make sure to not forget to wear a flower in your hair!
