I left my heart in San Francisco 

On the last weekend of October, 27th-29th, a whole bunch of us international students decided to go on a weekend trip to San Francisco. It was a point on my bucket list for this exchange semester, so I’m really happy I got to cross this amazing city off!

The day after arriving to San Francisco, our touristing began! First we went to the Painted Ladies, which is an idyllic street with some iconic San Francisco-ish houses, super cute! Then we walked around a bit, admiring the beautiful architecture and themes of different neighbourhoods. We also went to Fisherman’s Wharf which is basically a bay area with lots of shops, restaurants and boutiques. We also got to see some seals! We were all feeling pretty cold and exhausted, not having fully prepared for the chilly weather and all the walking, so we found another iconic thing – a trolley! We took that one back to our hotel and spent the night in a chill mode.

Loved this Halloween prop

 

The second and last day was a bit foggy and cloudy, but we still managed to make the most of it! We started off the day with some great breakfast at Pat’s Café. It’s definitely one of the most colorful and fun places I’ve been for breakfast, that’s for sure! And of course, the food was delicious. We also went on the red bus that takes you around the city and went over to the Golden Gate Bridge and then walked back. Then we visited the Ferry Building Marketplace and the 16th Avenue Tiled Steps, which were absolutely beautiful!

Time to go home

 

Then suddenly it was time to go to the airport to catch our flight home. I loved every second of this weekend and I highly recommend to anyone who’s thinking about coming here to actually go through with it. I promise, you won’t regret it!

Until next time! xx
