Down by the bay ♥

The bay area. I think by this leg of the trip, we were pretty tired and was most looking forward to being back home in Vancouver, so I wasn't expecting much from San Fran. Oh and we were dying for some legit Asian food. Thankfully, my friend Prosper who lives there, took us out for some at Fang's! The chef there was cool. He's this charming elderly man with great humour, and of course.. superb cooking skills. If you ever visit his restaurant, get him to order for you. I promise you won't be disappointed! But I have to say.. San Fran is a beautiful city. I enjoyed the stunning architecture, the rich history, and of course.. the infamous Golden Gate Bridge. We also checked out Apple's HQ. And Steve Job's house. Which is pictured below.






One of my favourite things to do in San Fran is to ride the tram. We spent quite some time exploring the city, checking out different sites via the tram. Inexpensive, and fun! I personally think it's the best way to see the city, even though we had a car. (Which we took down Lombard Street. Scary.) I also had the chance to check out Stanford University. Beautiful campus. And just all around amazing. (Sorry, UBC.) If I could pick a University to attend, it would be that one.. hands down.



And what would a trip to a city be without shopping and food? We stayed by Sutter street, which is a stone throw's away from the shopping district, as well as the eateries. After dinner at Fang's we headed to Twin Peaks. SO glad I didn't pass up on this! My cousin and her husband headed back to the hotel, while Becks and I went with Prosper to Twin Peaks. (Thanks again for taking us!) Best. View. Of the city. Ever.








We ended the night with a stroll and photo walk down by the waters, with a view of the Bay Bridge. Couldn't have asked for a better night. Up next.. Alcatraz, Golden Gate, Baker beach and my birthday :) Have any of you been to San Fran? What's on your list of things to do there?

San Francisco is probably my next favorite city after Vancouver (home of course!). It's beautiful and the food is ah-mazing! I ate the workd's best porchetta sandwich and chicken wings there. I find the two cities share a lot of similarities in culture and appearances and I wouldn't hesitate living there despite the Vancouver-like real estate prices hehe
