    City hall

    October 22, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Das Rathaus SF's erinnert sehr an den Invalidendom in Paris. Es ist unerwartet wunderschön und riesig - die Kuppel ist wohl die fünftgrößte weltweit. Fast zwei Stunden haben wir da drin unser Unwesen getrieben, es gab einfach so viel zu entdecken. 😂 Mit meiner Platzangst war mir nicht bewusst, dass mir Fahrstühle gefallen könnten, aber die da drin waren wirklich wunderschön. 😅 Auch die etwa hundert fotowütigen Bräute zu beobachten war äußerst amüsant (eine davon machte sich mit ihrem rosa Prinzessinnenkleid ganz hervorragend auf einem meiner Fotos👌😅 ein Bräutigam war allerdings nirgends zu sehen.. 🤔). Gerichtsverhandlungen konnte man durch Fenster ebenfalls beobachten. Definitiv ein Highlight des Tages, so lange hat wohl noch niemand ohne Termin Zeit in diesem Gebäude verbracht. 😂Read more

    USA Tour - San Francsico - California

    January 23, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    Last full day in USA today. I’m going to miss it but I’ll be honest, I preferred Europe. There’s just not much here in terms of cultural or historical interest. I do forget how young of a country it is but bragging about a church that’s 150 years old isn’t amazing.

    But, I’ve had a great time here, the food is awesome, the people are polite and it is kinda like visiting different countries visiting state to state.

    I’d still say Boston is my favourite city, the place is awesome. Hands down my favourite. I would say second would have to be Vegas then NOLA. So if I was to rank them I would say:

    1) Boston
    2) Las Vegas
    3) NOLA
    4) Portland, Maine
    5) Austin
    6) Nashville
    7) New York City
    8) San Francisco
    9) Houston
    10) Washington DC
    11) Philadelphia
    12) Los Angeles
    13) Dallas
    14) Atlantic City
    15) Memphis

    Although I had some amazing experiences in places such as Dallas and LA, overall they just didn’t inspire me like the others did. I don’t think I could rank my experiences in order, how could I chose between watching the cowboys win against doing the freedom trial in Boston. They’re too different and left different emotions on me.

    I’ll look back fondly on my time in the US. I have many memories, stories and experiences to share and talk about. My waist line is a little larger, my skin a little browner, my brain a little more educated and my crazy decision to sell everything and leave everything I loved and knew behind to set off on my own even more justified.

    I’ve managed to narrow down my top moments in 6 photos. Hopefully I’ll look back on this one day with fondness and pride. I met some cool new people, I met up with old friends. I’ve done things I only dreamed about, I’ve seen things I’ve always wanted to see and experienced things I’ve always wanted.

    This isn’t a goodbye USA, just a see you later.

    I’m sure I will.

    Klimt, Rodin and so much more!

    December 5, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 9 °C

    Today we utilised Uber big time. We started off being picked up from our hotel and going across town to the Legion of Honor Museum, located in a park in Sea Cliff, to see the Klimt and Rodin Exhibition. The exhibition was great, as were the rest of the pieces on display in the general area. After finishing at the Legion of Honor, we caught an Uber to the Californian Academy of Sciences located in Golden Gate Part, where we went through a number of the exhibitions including the Aquarium, the Swamp, The Amazon Flooded Forest, the California Coast, the Coral Reefs of the World, the Rainforest and the Living Roof.

    After having lunch in the cafe, we caught an Uber back to the hotel - Ian had a bit of a rest while Angus and I did a bit of retail therapy. I got some Chanel perfume and cosmetics from Macy’s - who have an additional 15% off at the moment - and Angus got some caps from Lids, and then some clothes from Old Navy (JP - Angus loved the store).

    Tonight we went Zazie for dinner, a lovely French restaurant, where we had a wonderful meal. We caught an Uber there and back, so a total of five Ubers today a McNicol record!
