Anita and Bernie’s Travel Diary

Friday, 28 Dec 2007

Location: San Fransisco, USA

MapHi everyone - well our travels have well and truely started now. We had a long wait at Chiago airport so did not arrive at our hotel in San Fransisco until 10 pm their time (5am the next day our time!!!). As you can imagine we were shattered. After a good nights sleep we hit the town.
Visited the magnificant Golden Gate Bridge. It was quite cold and damp with its usual fog surrounding it. We have ridden on the famous cable bus (after waiting 1 hr to get on I don't think we will do it again but being tourists we had to do it once). Also went on the famous F streetcar to take us to the Ferry Warf and Pier 39 where we had fish and chips to warm us up. Public transport is very good and we bought a three day pass for nine pounds each. I think it has paid for itself in one day! Tomorrow we have to catch the F streetcar again to go to Pier 33 to catch the boat to Alcatraz. We will also hit Macys and Bloomingdales tomorrow but believe it or not I will not be buying amything as I have no space in my case.
