We drove all the way from San Francisco to Big Sur, taking the scenic route (aka the State Road 1) and arrived in Big Sur just in time for sunset. Perfect timing! We stayed in a secluded cabin, right in the middle of a massive redwood forest. My only regret is that I didn’t take any photos of the best part of the trip: roasting marshmallows in front of the fire while watching the stars!
“On soft Spring nights I’ll stand in the yard under the stars – Something good will come out of all things yet – And it will be golden and eternal just like that – There’s no need to say another word.” ― Jack Kerouac, Big Sur
Have you heard about the Impossible Project’s awesome new idea of turning iPhone photos into real Polaroids? I am already in love with the concept. And even better, it looks like they’ve already reached their fundraising goal to make it happen. GP thinks a real Polaroid camera has more flair though. In his opinion, the Instant Lab won’t ever feel as authentic as a true Polaroid. Oh yes, I’ve got a very stubborn boyfriend, in case you didn’t know! What […]
Literally… And I promise you, this is the last post about SF you’ll find on this blog. No, I mean, really. (I know.) We took a lot of photos in San Francisco. I guess maybe we really like it there, or something.
As if living in Mission, one SF’s trendiest neighbourhoods, wasn’t cool enough, our friends also have the most wonderful roof top terrasse with stunning 360-degree views of the city. There’s nothing more magical than sipping a cool beer as you gaze out over the fog as it slowly blankets the city. We felt like we were floating on a cloud. Yes. The best things in life are free, people! Oh, and aren’t these colourful Victorian-style houses the cutest? Love that […]
San Francisco is a great place to be a tourist. The super touristy sights are unmissable. We rented bikes for an afternoon and rode from Pier 39 up through the Golden Gate Park and back. No, no, no. *yawn* (too boring!) Stop. Rewind. Now, put on your headphones, close your eyes and listen to this: Congratulations. You’re now all set to enjoy the real ‘Frisco Bay spirit!
The whole SF Mission neighbourhood is a massive public artwork. If you look around, art is everywhere, in every street. Black and white or colourful, Flower-Power or eco-warrior, South American/Mexican inspired or surrealist, cartoon or guerilla graffiti… oh, San Francisco! Your street art is and has everything. We started in Clarion alley (just south of 17th and Valencia) and then we made our way along Valencia Street to 24th and toured the alleys there.
