Travelling Tuesday: San Francisco Part 3

Welcome back! This is the last part of my San Francisco journey; this was a wonderful three day relaxing adventure in the city that has many hills… So many hills…

This is going to be a super short post because on this last day, we headed off to the Californian Coast this day, we only had room for one activity – but I will talk more about San Fran after.

If you haven’t read the other part’s to my San Francisco journey, please check it out.

Travelling Thursday: San Francisco Part 2

So today it was the most sunny day, we decided to shop and get our last minute items that we wanted, I finally found an awesome San Francisco shirt as I wasn’t a big fan of the ones I could find, I wasn’t huge into the ones with the city date for some reason, I don’t understand what past Ashleigh was on about.

We thought today would be the day to take a ferry to Sausalito Island to get a good view of the Golden Gate bridge, like I said in Part 1, it was so rainy, windy and cold that my friend didn’t want to stand there and see it, we though we will see where the weather takes us. The weather was super sunny and the blue sky was out.

We headed to the San Francisco Ferry Terminal and got our ticket. I was super excited to do this, this was a great suggestion by my friend, I love ferry rides.

So as we headed out, about half way, grey clouds were heading, but when you looked back, it was still super sunny in the main land city of San Fran. As we got deeper and deeper into the journey to Sausalito Island, it became like Shutter Island (have you seen the film or read the book? I highly recommend it, the author of the novel is written by Dennis Lehane and the film was directed by Martin Scorsese, screenplay written by Laeta Kalogridis and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo and Ben Kingsley). I am not kidding. But still when you looked back, it was sunny in San Fran.

We didn’t get to stay and explore Sausalito Island when we docked, but I know I want to when I go back one day, it looks beautiful (if you have any suggestions on things to do in Sausalito Island, please leave them in the comments).

My friend, my poor friend never fully got to see the Golden Gate Bridge, well she saw half of it, and she is still grumpy to this day when I bring it up because I like to tease her about it.

When we got back to the city, it was dark and grey and raining, a one last good bye to San Francisco by giving us the weather we showed up to.

This concludes my San Francisco journey. San Francisco is one of my favourite places in the US, I bloody loved this place that I can see myself moving to, If I ever did move to the US. It was a gorgeous city filled with interesting things to do and great food, I really hope to explore more of San Francisco in the future, there is so much more I want to do, I still need to do Alcatraz, Walt Disney Museum, the Zig Zag, Full House, house and Mrs Doubtfire house, and I am sure I am missing out whole lot more. Please if you have any recommendations for me to do for the next time I am in San Francisco, please comment below, I really would love to hear from you!

P.S I also found out there is a garlic themed restaurant – I need to find this restaurant immediately when I am back there, unfortunately I had only found out when we were leaving.
