San Francisco, I Miss You

Golden Gate Bridge. Union Square. Pier 39. Fisherman's Wharf. – Probably the most mentioned places when talking about San Francisco. 
Two years ago, I did a road trip down the West Coast. San Francisco was the first stop and by far my favorite of all the other ones. Even though it had been a few very foggy days, I fell in love with this amazing, versatile and multicultural city.

The main sights are definitely worth a visit but I also liked to stroll around the streets to discover much more than that. Chinatown, for example, is such a busy area: The pedestrian ways are narrow, full of tourists and for someone with anxiety probably not the perfect place. But when I passed one of the backstreets, I suddenly had the perfect view on Bay Bridge and the Ocean. This view was so calming and I just couldn't not take a photo of it.

Another highlight was the drive up the Twin Peaks in the evening. San Francisco is even prettier in the dark. It felt like time stood still for a moment. I still regret not taking my camera with me that night. On the other hand, looking back on that moment just supports my wish to go back to San Francisco.

Even though this city is certainly a hilly one, I didn't mind because of the view I had every time I made it to the top. Plus, I valued going downhill even more... Besides, it is definitely a great exercise! 

Have you ever been to San Francisco? x
