Spotted on Streetview!

When I was visiting San Francisco last year, I caught¬†a streetcar from Market Street to Pier 33 where the boat was leaving for the¬†Alcatraz tour. While I was waiting at the stop, a Google Streetview car went past. I bookmarked my location, in the hopes of one day finding myself …

Venice Beach

Today was the last day of my holiday. My flight out of LAX was 11.30pm so I still had the full day to explore a bit more of Los Angeles. I packed up my bags and left them at the apartment, then sent a message to Molly to say I’d …

Hollywood

Santa Monica

The Vegas Strip

Grand Canyon

Today was a really exciting day. I had an early start, but it was worth it. I’d booked a day trip to the grand canyon, and was being picked up at the hotel at 7.40am. I got ready, then went downstairs for breaky. My accommodation included a $9 breakfast credit …

Alcatraz

This afternoon I had a trip to Alcatraz booked for 2.30pm, which left me the morning to explore more of the city. It was a beautiful clear day which was a pleasant change after the rain the day before. I hadn’t spent much time in Downtown San Francisco, so I …
