My husband and I did a California road trip back in 2012. We were a little nervous because our kids were only two and four at that time. But they behaved like two little troopers; using crafts, books, electronics and cartoons we got to Cali with no complaints. As for my husband and I, we can drive for days, not get tired. I tell people often that all of our marriage problems get solved on a road; what else is there to do, just talk. The experience was so much fun, that we decided to let history repeat itself.
Since our stop in San Francisco in 2012 was short, this year we extended the stay to a few nights. We've spent a lot of time in the car, exploring the town. The architecture in San Francisco is unique, the buildings are built condensed, attached together, while still having their own character.
Many streets have their own character, including, China Town, Italian Town, Russian Hill, etc.. And speaking of Russian Hill, there's nothing Russian about it, except its name.
Lombard St. is famous for having a steep, one-block section that consists of eight tight hairpin turns. It is filled with cars and people, has nice landscaping and a spectacular view of San Francisco.
Pier 39 is the most popular place for tourist. But once we came there, it was so packed with tourists that we lost any interest for the place.
For the first time in my life I tried Indian food. The place is called, Darbar Restaurant. While food in general is good, their Naan bread was the best discovery of the day.
And of course we had to have a picture with the bridge.
It was so windy. Isn't he adorable?
