Honeymoon Travel Guide: San Francisco

san francisco17

Known for it’s steep rolling hills, cable cars and as the home of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco is sure to be at the top of many of your honeymoon destination wish lists. Which is why, when I was there recently teaching a workshop, I took copious notes on all the awesome things we did and saw for this blog post!

Eat

We really lucked out with our food selections in here, everything we ate was super yummy! Some of my favourites were Mission Picnic, Foreign Cinema (they play movies on a big screen in the outside seating area!), Kitchen Story, La Palma (best tacos ever, seriously) and Sidewalk Juice. Even the take-out was incredible. We ordered from Basil Thai TWICE while we were there because it was probably the best thai food I’ve EVER had.

If you’re a bit of a foodie, San Francisco certainly won’t disappoint you!

Gawk

If there’s one thing that defines San Francisco like nothing else, it’s the houses. Huge, foreboding Victorian buildings… painted all the colours of the rainbow! We had so much fun walking around and deciding who should live in which house. However Gala and I might have to share this one…

Like, literally, my dream home.

Oh and speaking of rainbow, the council are currently in the process of painting the crosswalks in The Castro, the gay district, RAINBOW!  I am so bummed that it wasn’t done yet because it would have made for the best photo ever.

Sleep

So we didn’t get to stay in the beautiful rainbow house, but the place we did rest our weary heads at night was still pretty damn spectacular. We found it on Air B&B, and even though it was a little more spendy than we’d usually go for, after seeing this place we knew nowhere else would do!

Why yes, that is a pouffe that looks like a giant ball of yarn…

The garden was small, but the awesome spiral staircase leading to the upstairs apartment made for a great photo spot!
