    San Francisco 2.2

    September 2, 2017 in the United States

    Gegen Mittag ging es dann für uns in Richtung Fishermans Wharf und Pier 39. Bei Temperaturen um die 44 ºC war unsere Sightseeing Tour zu Fuß ganz schön anstrengend 😔 Und leider kam man sich auch hier vor wie im Viehanhänger- es war einfach soviel los, dass man sich durch die Massen drängen und um etwas zu essen zu bekommen elendig lange warten musste... also entschieden wir uns hungrig zur Cable Car Station zu gehen um von dort aus ins Cable Car Museum zu fahren. Im Anschluss haben wir es uns nicht nehmen lassen mit dem Auto die bekannte Lombard Street hinunter zu fahren. Danach ließen wir den Abend bei einem "Pullerbier" ausklingen, denn Dani's Sandkasten Freundin Mimmy hat heute eine gesunde Tochter zur Welt gebracht, was natürlich erstmal begossen werden musste 😉

    Alles in allem sind wir froh das wir morgen weiter reisen. San Francisco hat zwar wirklich schöne Ecken, aber unser Hotel befindet sich mitten im sozialen Brennpunkt und die Touristen Hotspots sind einfach nur überlaufen...

    Von Alcatraz zur Lombard Street

    September 11, 2017 in the United States

    Zu Fuß vom Pier 33 ganz hoch zur Lombard Street mussten wir feststellen, dass dort ein neuer Marvelfilm gedreht wird und wir die Straße nicht runter gehen dürfen. Also sind wir im U zur unteren Seite gelaufen. Ärgerlich war es dennoch.

    San Francisco

    November 15, 2017 in the United States

    San Francisco is awesome. One of the best cities we've been to. After dropping the hire car off at the airport we headed downtown to hit Chinatown for some dinner. Chinatown was busy and quite dirty compared with the rest of the city. We visited some cool bars in San Francisco over the 3 days we were there - we watched a couple of bands at the Boom Boom Room before heading back to our cheap, dated hotel. Saying that though it was still good enough. There are quite a lot of homeless and people with mental health issues in San Francisco, and we did feel sorry for them, but a bit nervous in some parts of the city at night. It seemed that the government doesn't do enough for these people. We also got to go on the famous cable car and even got to use the brakes down California Avenue. It was hilarious, as Maddie was using the brakes one conductor jumped out to get his and the driver's lunch, the busiest street in San Francisco and we hold the traffic up! You had to be there, but was funny as hell! The one thing I wanted to do here was visit Alcatraz and so we booked two tickets on a cruise and I dragged Maddie along. The sun was out and the ride over was amazing, we got to see the Golden Gate Bridge we drove over days before from the bay. Alcatraz looked imposing sitting in the middle of the bay and the closer we got, the bigger it got. It was so cool to go in the prison and see the cells in which Al Capone and other big criminals had spent there days. The exercise yard where Clint Eastwood filmed Escape From Alcatraz. The whole experience was so cool and the views back to San Francisco bristling in the sun was awesome. Once back on the mainland we walked the 600 plus steps to Coit tower. This 210ft tower was built in 1933 as a memorial to a rich lady called Lillie Hitchcock Coit. The views from the top of the bay and city was phenomenal, a real highlight of San Francisco.Read more

    San Francisco, California

    May 31 in the United States

    We decided not to take the scenic coastal route because strong gale force winds were predicted. Instead we rode north inland, still was windy. We arrived in San Francisco earlier and easier than expected. We dumped our stuff in the hotel room and headed off to see curly Lombard Street, Pier 39 and Fisherman's Wharf. We then ventured into the Italian district and had pizza.Read more

    San Francisco

    May 21, 2016 in the United States

    So we headed up past San Fran so we could see the giant redwoods. It was a bit if an anti climax as they were no bigger than the trees in Yosemite.
    Lost dad in traffic so me and Elliott found a bar. Had a few beers then dad turned up. Determined that we were leaving the city and heading south to camp I forced dad to accept that I had booked us into a hotel on the very road Steve McQueen did the bullit scene. Had a few beers and a shower. Good to wash the desert off of our bodies.
    Going out for beer with Elliott tonight so will look forward to the next update........

    SFO day 3... part1

    July 17, 2016 in the United States

    Today we toured around...
    We went and checked out Lombard Street (SFO most crooked street, the switchbacks on this road are insane). We saw the Painted Ladies (these homes were made famous from being the the opening credits for the TV show Full House). We walked and drove some of the cities steepest hills, check out the lean on the Ford as it is Parked behind the kids.
    Ava was an absolute trooper on this trip, no stroller, she walked, ran and skipped everywhere we went.
