san francisco, ca

28/09/2014


We left Seattle and flew in to San Francisco. I have to say that coming away from this trip, I realise this was one of my favourite stops. It was diverse, huge and visually stunning. Whenever I think about the cities I saw, San Francisco lingers the longest in my mind. 

The arquitecture was both interesting and colourful, Being used to a certain kind of arquitectural aesthetics that regardless of its European charm, mostly sticks to neutrals, the colours easily caught my eye. Sometimes the houses would be a flamboyant combination of colours and odd shapes. Others, they'd form one long street of houses alike in faded tones of blue, pink, yellow and every other tint you can imagine.

What I loved the most, however, is how the city really keeps you busy. Pier 39, Haight Street, the Ghirardelli Square, Chinatown (by far the most enthralling I've ever been to), the Golden Gate Park and its museums (and the Conservatory of Flowers that won me over completely)... Quite honestly I can't even name half of it. I feel like it would take me forever to run out of things to do and see in a place like this. And of course, with the Golden Gate Bridge and the cable cars it also reminds me a little bit of home. If I ever live in America, I hope it's in San Francisco.

  1. tu vais-me fazer querer visitar esses sítios todos, quando eu por norma não tenho curiosidade x) quero uma placa dessa loja da 5ª foto! Adoro sítios eclécticos e esse pareceu-me spot on :)

  2. Também gostei muito de S. Francisco quando lá estive, mas não sei se seria o sítio que escolheria para viver. Adoro estas cores, são digitais editadas ou analógicas?
