Girl Ninja and I recently returned from our first vacation as a married couple (not counting our honeymoon). We spent our three day MLK weekend running around San Francisco like chickens with our heads cut off. I spent most of the weekend stressing about what we were gonna do next, when we were gonna eat, and how we were gonna get from point A to point B. Girl Ninja spent most of the weekend going to Nordstrom, going to to Banana Republic, and going back to Nordstrom to make sure they didn’t get anything new while she was in Banana. Needless to say, we had our hands full 🙂
Here’s a photo journal of the stuff we did…
We ate crazy good food:
Oh. My. Goodness. I ate so much while in SF. Seriously, I look like a pregnant man. Just look at how incredibly delicious that vegetarian scramble bread bowl thing-a-majigger is! Heavenly! I also had my first ever street vendor hot dog, and to be honest it was pretty mediocre. We had awesome Sundae’s at Girhadelli’s. And Crazy good Italian food at this little joint called Finos. Best part about being on vacation was definitely trying new restaurants!
We went to crazy awesome places:
Golden Gate Bridge, Ghiradelli Square, Fisherman’s Wharf, The Embarcadero, Lombard Street, Union Square, the Financial District, etc. We tried to check off as many iconic SF places as possible. Unfortunately, we didn’t have the time to make it to Alcatraz or Golden Gate Park, but don’t worry, we’ll check those off the list next time. Even though we ate a ton, I’m sure we burned even more calories with all the walking around we did.
We saw some crazy stuff:
As expected, we saw some pretty crazy stuff in SF. There were a billion street performers. A billion cable cars and trolleys. A billion and one homeless people. Heck, we even saw two sea lions get in a fight at Pier 39. The entire trip was downright incredible! There’s no telling what you will see when you take a stroll down the streets of San Francisco. It’s part of what makes the city so darn fun.
All in all, we had a great time and totally enjoyed our first vacation together. I haven’t crunched the numbers yet, but I think the total damage for the trip is around $800 (including airfare and hotel). Not too shabby if you ask me. I could get use to this vacationing thing, where to next?!?!?!
