Woo the last of our travel adventures! San Francisco was a blast and dare I say it was actually warm there (at least on our last few days)! There was so much yummy food to be eaten, so many succulents growing everywhere, and so so so much walking. We were troopers and ended up walking around 10 miles a day. By the end of the week I think my calves doubled in size. Warning: This post is lahhhong. Like sit down and bring you cup of tea and snack and stay for a while long. Better make yourself comfortable.
The first night we were there we had dinner at Gracias Madre and it was ahhhhmazing. Vegan Mexican food. gah I’m going to dream about that place..
Day 1 started off with us going to the botanical gardens in Golden Gate Park. It was the absolute perfect place to be as it was raining and cold outside and we were getting way sick of the weather. The botanical gardens were toasty warm because it is basically a giant terrarium.
Once we hyped ourselves up to go back into the rain we took an Uber over to Judahlicious for some lunch. We shared an acai ice cream bowl and some yummy and warm soup.
After lunch we headed back to explore Golden Gate Park more (it’s huge!). Warning: so many succulent pictures to come.
We also wondered through the Japanese Gardens in hopes that we’d end up in the tea shop but quickly discovered it was outside and packed full of people. So we each stood in front of this thing and then left to find a tea shop we could sit and warm up in. Rose took us on a bit of a wild goose chase trying to find a tea shop, but it was well worth it because look at that delicious matcha latte and pumpkin spice cake we got. After our tea stop we made our way to the Full House house. There she be with a nice pretty car out front.The day ended with us walking, yes walking, to Little Gem for some dinner. We both got this delicious bowl of veggies in a curry sauce over rice.
Day 2 started with us walking down to the waterfront and along the Embarcadero. We saw Alcatraz right away.
We ate lunch in the marketplace in the Ferry building and then headed out to do some more splorin’ (on foot, of course). We found this random garden walkway thingy that we weren’t sure we were allowed to walk through but we did anyways because it had really cool plants and the view wasn’t bad either.
After all dem hills we finally made our way to Coit Tower where Rose gripped onto me for dear life as I poked my head out the window to get this pictures.
After Coit Tower we wandered over to Lombard street. We then just happened to find ourselves at Ghirardelli Square and just somehow happened to buy a bunch of chocolate… After that we made our way to dinner for the night, which was at Asian Box.
The next day we ventured over to see the Golden Gate bridge.
We then got lunch at Nourish Cafe, which had a tasty selection of avocado toasts and smoothies. After lunch we wandered over to see the Painted Ladies. We lounged around on the green for a while and then holed up in another tea shop for the afternoon as our pale white skin New England skin couldn’t handle all the sun. We ended up having dinner again at Gracias Madre because it was that good and who knows when we will be back next. The final day we were in San Francisco was a mild day where we just walked around a bit more (cause we didn’t do that enough already) and shopped a little. We had to buy ourselves some hats because seriously that sun was-a-burning. Of course it almost took us the whole day to buy the hats because we couldn’t find cute enough ones but it was worth it because look how cute!
Then we flew home! If you missed our previous travel posts go check them out – we also went to Portland and Eugene. Hope you enjoyed seeing what we did whilst traveling. Popcorn popping and craft making will resume shortly.
