The question, “Where are you flying to this weekend?” sounds like the lifestyle of the rich and famous, but is a normal question for a Southwest Airlines intern.
This weekend, I made plans to meet up with my favorite Uncle Carlin, and my cousin Brittany in San Fransisco. I’d traveled to California several times before but this was exciting because this would be my first trip to The Bay area.
Unfortunately, this was a very quick one day trip so I had to make the absolute most of it.
I arrived in San Fransisco at about 9 pm. I took the metro to the hotel downtown where we were staying. As soon as I made it up to the room, I got dressed, to get a taste of the San Francisco nightlife.
We headed out to the Castro where we met up with a couple of my uncle’s friends and had the time of my life!
We woke up super early the next day and took the trolley to get breakfast at a cute cafe on Market Street.
After breakfast, we rented bicycles and trekked about 10 miles through downtown San Fransisco to the Golden Gate Bridge. I regrettably wore a romper, and flats so my ride through the hills was difficult but definitely worth it.
I didn’t want to leave San Fransisco without paying a visit to Mr. Holmes Bakehouse.
Between the 3 of us, we ordered at least 10 things off the menu and every single option was baked to perfection. It made sense why the line is always out of the door, wrapped around the building. My favorites were the dark chocolate chip sea salt cookie, and their famous cronuts that sell out every single day!
So if you’re in the Bay area and want to try one make sure you get there early!
The bay was so beautiful, and the views were unmatched. San Fran is at the core of Silicon Valley, an innovative technology embedded industry.
Full of transplants that blend to make an extremely diverse group of young professionals and seasoned executives. San Fransisco is a place where I could see myself raising a family because San Franciscans are always on the go, being active. In addition to so many unique food options to chose from.
It’s a different vibe, unlike anywhere else.
I fell in love with the city.
After a short but sweet trip, I boarded the plane to LAX and then on another plane back to Dallas. I was lucky enough to get a window seat and catch a gorgeous view of the bay.
Then I realized I had forgotten something and had to go back…
Because I left my heart in San Fransisco.
