travel / san francisco

I am back to share a bit of my San Francisco trip! First up, I compiled a short list of some of the things I did…
Eat-of course I love to eat and this trip consisted of a lot of casual dining. Some favorites were Roam Burger in the Marina and surprisingly, the tacos in the cafe at the California Academy of Sciences. Don’t even get me started on In-n-Out! And sharing an ice cream sundae in Ghirardelli Square is always a treat!
Shop-I did my best to save my pennies and do only minimal shopping but I got two cute shirts at the JCrew Factory store and a nice neutral clutch at a great little boutique in Cow Hollow called Ambiance. I also loved window shopping along Union Street (not to be confused with Union Square).
Activities-I visited SF about 3 years ago and did many of the touristy things. This time, I tried to maximize my time with friends and family and include a lot of R+R. My lovely cousin was kind enough to take me to Domaine Carneros winery, L and I braved the Go Cars (which is hilarious if nothing else), we dropped in on two friends and another cousin at Googleplex, I had a great family day with my aunt, uncle, and 4 cousins, and I got to go to the zoo!

This is getting long, so I’ll recap the photos :) {all pictures via my Instagram}

Whew! That’s a long post. Thanks for sticking with me!!
