I recently got back from an amazing long weekend in San Francisco. The weather, the food, the shopping and the views were all so beautiful I couldn’t get over it.
I’ve come up with a short list of some of my favourite things from the trip. I would definitely recommend them to anyone thinking of visiting. Oh, and if you’re thinking of visiting – mind if I stow away in your suitcase?
1. The Golden Gate Bridge
I know what you’re saying – “well, obviously.” But honestly, every time I spotted this magnificent bridge I got butterflies in my stomach. The colour is so rich and it’s especially stunning when she pops out from behind the fog.
I have four words: double pain au chocolat. Tartine’s version of this French classic is so flaky and sweet you’ll think you’ve died and gone to heaven.
Alcatraz may seem all doom and gloom, but outside of the jail cells there are some absolutely incredible gardens. I could do a whole post on this, from the succulents to the layers of flower beds. Everything looks so much more beautiful next to the crumbling buildings.
Step into this garden and it will feel as if you stepped into paradise. The whole space smells amazing and you’ll love saying “hello” to the Koi swimming in the streams.
So if you’re looking for the perfect weekend away, or if you’re looking to move somewhere (hehe), look no further than San Francisco. Also, if anyone has their own recommendations of what to see and do I would love to hear them. I’m already dreaming of my next visit!
Until next time,
P.S. While I was writing, I was eating some yummy Ghirardelli chocolate, another must-try while you’re in the city.
