What better way to celebrate my 31st birthday than a last minute trip to San Francisco.
I can’t believe it has come and gone so fast. We had an amazing time, I wish we were still on vacation.
We essentially started our trip on Sunday evening. Flying stand-by with my mom’s flight benefits always has me worried. At about 8:30 on Sunday night, my dad checked the flight loads for me and there was going to be no way we would make it out of town. [Insert Panic Mode] After an hour or so of searching prices online, we ending up buying a one-way ticket instead of taking the chance on flying stand-by.
So we finally made it out of town at 830 Monday morning. It was an easy flight without complications.
Monday’s arrival to San Francisco was beautiful. I have never been there and was very impressed with everything. I am very big on traveling and seeing everything that I can, so of course I pushed myself to visit and see everything.
Rode the Trolleys
Took and Bay Cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge to see Alcatraz. (Who knew you had to book an Alcaatraz tour – 6 Weeks in Advance). So we were only able to see it from the water.
A bus tour of the city to see all the sites from a double-decker bus
Overall we had an amazing time and I can’t wait to visit again. I may have pushed myself a little too hard when my feet looked like this on the second evening:
I probably should have rested a little more often 🙂
More on our trip home later…
