27/08/12 - San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge & Sydney!Hey everyone!
This will be the last post of my San Francisco trip! After this I'm going to go back to finish blogging about my other two Japan trips so hopefully will get them all out soon before I leave for Japan again! haha.
Anyway, we had a free day in San Francisco so I went with the other Liz Lisa staff to go sight-seeing!
I think this is Union Square? We were going to go to the Golden Gate Bridge so we took the tram to go near the beach area.
There were lots of people in line
Train is coming~!
Shimizu-san was the one who contacted me to work with Liz Lisa
Photos from the tram
The girls on the tram~
and with the driver
I have to say that the roads in San Francisco... it feels like you're riding on a roller coaster when you're in a car lol. There are a lot of hills there!
We hired bikes to ride on the Golden Gate Bridge~
Ok so, I can't ride a bike, lol. I know it sounds pretty sad, but I never took my training wheels off my bike when I was a child, and in Australia not many people ride bikes on the road. So when the others said they will hire bikes, I was like... O_O serious?!? T__T hahaha. Luckily we were able to get 2 seater bikes so I sat on the back with Shimizu-san.
We stopped a few times on the way to take photos
Just before going on the bridge
Took my jacket off, lol
On the bridge
After the bridge, we road into Sausalito. It was such a cute little town! All the buildings were so cute, it makes you feel like you're in the 80s or something hahaha.
This guy was balancing rocks
Trying to find a place to park our bikes was hard
I just wish we had more time to explore the place! T_T
We were really hungry so we decided to go eat at a nice little restaurant~
Food was really good and the service was great! I forgot the name of the restaurant though :(
After the food, we had to quickly take a ferry back to the other side since my flight was leaving in a few hours that night
On the ferry~
Just got back~
And on the plane from San Francisco to Sydney~!
The flight was really good! I got what I wanted, window seat and the seat next to me empty :P haha. Managed to sleep on most of the 14hour plane ride!
I've never travelled interstate before, lol. So Sydney is the first city in Australia I've been to besides my hometown. I only had about 3 hours in Sydney to transfer to my next flight, but Steven ended up meeting up with me to take me out for breakfast. He was in one of my blog posts a bit earlier in July here.
After coming back from America, just realized how different Australia is haha. It was definitely a bit weird for me seeing people drive on the right side of the road in America xD
Steven and I~
We just went to a small cafe for breakfast
I had to quickly leave for my flight :( But it was nice seeing Steven again since I usually only get to see him once a year! T_T I stocked up on a lot of Krispy Kremes before I went back to Perth too haha.
Anyway this is my last post for my San Francisco trip! it was a short but memorable one. Hopefully I can go back to America soon and explore some other cities!
