San Francisco Trip

Back from San Francisco and what turned out to be the best Winter holiday I've ever had!
 

My first week back home was spent fighting off a head cold and recovering from post-vacation blues but it's full steam ahead now.

 
This post features just a few shots from my trip. Sorry if you starting following me on Instagram; I lost my mobile early on so that was a downer.  

The beautiful houses are perhaps what I'll miss most about SF. So unique and what incredible details!

 
 
The famous Lombard Street including a cute interpretation on a t-shirt designed by Tomoko Maruyama, purchased in Japantown.

 
Of course no trip to San Francisco would be complete without visiting Alcatraz (so interesting) and seeing the sea lions basking on the docks at Pier 39. What nobody else will tell you is that they quite stinky so you may not want to watch them for too long.

 
I especially enjoyed the walking tour with Genie on The Real San Francisco Tour (highly recommended) and discovered local treasures such as secret tunnels, street murals and Smitten Ice Cream, made on the spot for you using liquid nitrogen. I tried the Salted Caramel flavour. Yum!

 
Both Voyt and I celebrated our birthdays in San Francisco which is a big deal as I didn't think he would make it thus far (if you asked his doctors a year ago). I have learnt how important it is to take time out and enjoy life. 

Voyt is a big jazz fan so it was only fitting that we celebrated his birthday at the famous Yoshi's. Mine was marked with a delicious dinner and belly dancing floor show at the the El Mansour Morrocan Restaurant.

Good bye San Francisco, I already miss you!
