I’ve never been San Francisco before. I have never been in the west coast until this May actually. It has been 5 years now that I moved to NY. It takes time to start to discover USA. You know your first year in NY is crucial, you barely find time and money to go around.
Anyway, Fatih and I decided to go San Francisco this 4th of July. We actually did a house swap with one of our friends. They stayed in our place and we stayed in theirs.
San Francisco was my dream city when I was in the last years of my university time, I wanted to move SF after my graduation but honestly I did not like SF as I do NY. First of all the weather was terrible. It was too cold for the whole vacation. The city is not dense as NY. You have take to Uber ot Lyft to go other part of the city. Streets are so bare during the weekdays It is not chaotic as NY. I missed NY from the first day.
I still enjoy fashion district near Union Square and Fillmore Street ( I finally found my long time wish listed Superga Pink Espadrilles) . I love Japanese Garden. I love Chestnut Street in the Marina District but overall the city gives me retirement place vibe.
My favorites are the restaurant that we have brunch everyday. You can see some of my favorite places from the city in below.
See you next time with different city with different destination!
