I would say, it was a perfect and a not-so-perfect day in San Fransisco. The day started with the main attraction of The city.. I have seen it in movies and episodes, finally here.. yayy!!
I wanted to have salted caramel sundae for breakfast. Early morning calories, I know!! We walked all the way to Ghirardelli square , the Google map showed it was just a few miles from our hotel but the varying gradient of San Fransisco streets sure made it feel like a lot more than few miles. I had started surfing the crimson wave from that day so it was quite tiring for me. I would suggest, riding on cable cars, it’s is a better way to view this eclectic city, both fun and exciting. But if you want to shed a few pounds early morning, the steep roads are sure to boost your heart rate.
One thing I really liked about San Fransisco is people walk around the city a lot and use public transport quite often which you generally don’t find in Houston. The city has it’s beautiful views, great landscapes, stunning architectures and it’s various adventurous souls. The city has also got some cute and colorful buildings,which looked interesting.
Coming back to breakfast, the salted Caramel Sundae tasted spectacular. We even bought some goodies from the shop.
No matter how short your San Fransisco trip is, never forget to visit Fisherman’s Wharf. The place is massive. We visited the night before and the next morning as well. I liked it so much. For last night dinner we opted to go to Boudin.
So before going to Boudin, I read quite a lot of blogs and people were raving so much about Clam Chowder from Boudin. The sourdough bread was good but the soup wasn’t that great. Don’t judge me here, probably I am the only one who didn’t like Clam Chowder bowl. I was so excited before buying it and instead of looking at the menu, I ordered one plate for me but the soup kind of disappointed me a little.
You’ll find bakers baking breads into different animal shapes. It’s so cool.
We didn’t find time for the Alcatraz tour, It’s quite long. But if you are a history buff, don’t miss that out. Heard it’s a good experience.
Next, we took our rented car and drove across Chinatown. It’s a pretty shopping place. We stopped for the hidden garden steps and the 6th Avenue Tiled steps.
That’s the view of Land’s End Labyrinth.
After that, we visited a friend of ours and had lunch together. We had a flight to catch in the evening, straight to Houston.
Adios to ‘The City by the Bay’…
