Don’t know if we were lucky or what but Ezra and I survived the 17 hours gruesome flight time to and fro direct from San Francisco.
It was an exciting explore and adventure trip that we had planned out prior to the flight, hence no time to waste everybody!!! Our 4 clear days were filled with activities from day to night… we were pretty worn out every night and slept thru the night. Hurray to no jet lags!! 👏🏻
We rented a car out in San Francisco and parking is srsly damn expensive. Average carpark ranges from $6 usd per hour 🙀 and street parking is abt $4 usd per hour 🙀🙀 all our money was mostly spent on transport and food. But yea, somewhat like a little mini moon trip for the both of us! So here goes…
GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE
Visiting the iconic San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge was one of the first stops we made!
We travelled to various points to capture this bridge which led us to going thru the toll twice priced at $9.90 usd each way 😪
It was all worth it though, the views we got were❤️
we drove up to a hill top to achieve these views 😍 my favourite from the lot. We managed to get all the photos with the help of our camera stand and with almost little to zero tourist in most of these spots
We spent the entire morning chasing the Golden Gate Bridge. We went to almost all the points that we got from Google and after a lot of detours, climb and trespassing… we were rewarded with em’ views!
Palace of fine arts
Accidentally chancing upon this beauty during the drive and decided to explore the grounds
We spent an hour here by the lake.. bird and people watching. Witnessed a wedding shoot taking place here as well! Pretty hot spot for shoots with Photographers cause of the rotunda dome.
We had to watch ourselves from photobombing others throughout 🙈
Well worth the time taken, Husband Sim and I managed to brush up our history and found that this palace was one of the buildings that escaped demolition.
Another iconic attraction in San Francisco, we HAD to stop over at the fisherman’s wharf for the clam chowder over @ Boudin! 😛
Trying very hard to get a shot with the sign since there were 101 people photobombing 😅
Boudin’s seafood clam chowder and rustic tomato soup was 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 The cafe baked fresh sour dough bread daily which could be seen from the window display and were transported by little hanging baskets across the eating hall to the open concept kitchen! Quite a sight I must say, which led both Ezra and I slurping up every drip of soup left in the edible bread bowl.
We left boudin with a happy tummy and hanged around the area abit to digest all the carbs we injested. Husband Sim brought me to an arcade museum along the coastal lines called musee mecanique which housed vintage arcade machines from the 70s. Most of the machines were made of wood and traditional mechanical parts which made this place extra quaint!
Haha if I don’t remember wrongly I was having a game of street fighter with Husband Sim and lost terribly. Being a sore loser, I took over his controls and continued for round 2 and finished the game in approx 3 mins 🙊 25 cents well spent there 😁😁😁
Lol my very unhappy face.
We ended the day with shopping of course and had loots from Ulta which is my MUCH LOVED beauty product store in the states (aside from Sephora of course). Managed to bag home some of the items which I’ve been lusting over for. Will share them more in part 2 tmr! ❤️
Have a great Sunday guys! ❤️
