San Francisco: Karl, Standing in Line and (Too Much) Mexican Food

…not that you could ever have too much Mexican food. It’s the best food ever, am I right?

Yes. Yes.

But in other more important news, hello again dear friends! Hello!

We’re back after three weeks of traveling through California. And I get everyone now who says they love California. It really is a very cool place. The weather is just amazing (E-V-E-R-Y-D-A-Y), people are super nice and it’s just a really diverse and interesting state to travel through. Oh and the beaches, the ocean and the palm trees. Those aren’t too shabby either.

So, what have you been up to this summer? How has September, how has fall been treating you so far? I hope  this finds you feeling well and energized for the last couple months of 2017 (crazy, how fast this year went by).

San Francisco in a nutshell

I’ll start this little series on our Californian roadtrip with what was our first stop. San Francisco. Are you ready?

I’ve come up with a little ritual where I’d ask Philipp to sum up his impression of places we visited using three words. (To be fair, he would tell you that I forced him to do it. But hey, isn’t it interesting to see what everyone says?) My San Francisco summary is the one you see up there in the title. I have been impressed by the willingness of San Franciscans (is that how you call them?) to queue up in front of coffee shops, creameries, restaurants, bakeries, anywhere really. And we’re not talking about 5 minutes, we’re talking 30+ minutes. Of course Philipp thinks no ice cream or croissant in the world is worth waiting for that long but obviously I get sucked into the whole mystery of wanting to know if it really is worth it? Why would they wait for so long? Let me tell you something we stood in line twice and I was a little disappointed (more about that in the San Francisco Food edit post.)

So let’s get to the photos now. Do let me know your three word summary of San Francisco, if you’ve ever visited. I’d love to know!

Meet Karl The Fog

He likes to show up sometimes. He’s even instafamous. You don’t believe me? Check out “his work” here.

The Golden Gate Bridge

(If my game were a four word game, the Golden Gate Bridge DEFINITELY would make it, such an impressive bridge. It also was a great bike ride over to Sausalito and back, highly recommend
