Napa, with all its ups and downs, was a well deserved rest from all the action. Napa was quiet, we had hot showers, fantastic views and plenty of wine. Alas, though, pumpkin time to move on to the next part of our trip: San Francisco.
I’m not going to lie, and I will confess that in the beginning, the sole reason I wanted to visit SF was because of the TV show Charmed. Yup, it’s true. I am a huge fan of the Halliwell sisters, and I wanted desperately to see the house. Unfortunately, we could only stay in San Francisco for two days, so we had to prioritise.
The first thing about San Francisco is that, the whole story of the slope roads is true. I mean, when we went to return our fantastic rental Ford, I learned that the setting L is indeed much needed. Going down is alright, but when you are facing a basically straight wall, at some point you will wonder if you can make it without dying. We didn’t die.
The second thing about San Francisco is that it is beautifully messy. We were staying at a hostel downtown, right next to China Town, and it was fantastic. One of the nights we had Chinese from the restaurant next door and it was the best I ever had.
Now, to what we saw… When I’m travelling, I hardly ever jot down the areas I visit for one simple reason: I love walking around and getting lost, so most of the time I don’t even know where I am. So, without any more delay, this is what I saw in San Francisco with a couple photographs of the Golden Gate Bridge thrown in.
