Streetcars of San Francisco

I can’t see the appeal with the cable cars in San Francisco, but I love these heritage streetcars that run around the city. Compared with the super crowded cable cars, on these streetcars you can often find a seat and the price can’t be beat at only $US2.25 for an adult to ride.  In comparison, … Continue reading

Pretentious food … or who gobbed on my meal?

I don’t get this whole “foam” food thing.  I’m not a fussy eater.  Heck, I’ll try anything that doesn’t have a deceased animal in it.  But when this dish showed up in front of me on our trip to San Francisco last month, it did take me back a second. On the menu, this was listed … Continue reading

Biking to the Golden Gate Bridge – San Francisco, California, USA

  Ever since our first trip to San Francisco back in 2011 I had wanted to bike the Golden Gate Bridge.  Mum vetoed it last time – spoil sport!  This time, I didn’t quite get to bike over it either, as we didn’t have time, but we did do a bike ride along the waterfront … Continue reading

I confess I didn’t know … Continue reading

This is a fairly elegant restaurant on one of the upper floors of the Westfield … Continue reading

Muir Woods National Monument – California, USA

12 miles north of San Francisco is the Muir Woods National Monument, one of the few surviving stands of old growth Coastal Redwoods.  We visited on an unusually beautiful, sunshiney July afternoon and I’d like to say we had the place to ourselves but it was overrun with visitors. This is not getting out into … Continue reading

Chinatown “Year of the … ” Street Art Mural – San Francisco

Wandering around Chinatown in San Francisco last night, we stumbled across this beautiful mural of the Chinese Zodiac.  Isn’t it beautiful?   I’ll have a lot more on San Francisco coming up very soon, so be sure to follow 🙂

Escape *to* Alcatraz – visiting The Rock (Photo heavy)

Alcatraz is infamous due to its history as an inescapable prison.  Its featured loads of movies and also for the clientele that had the privilege of spending some quality time on “The Rock”. Today its a major San Francisco tourist destination. Tip 1 – buy your tickets in advance online, else you may not get … Continue reading

These streetcars come from all corners of the world and have been refurbished and repurposed to provide an easy and cheap … Continue reading
