San Francisco , California - USA

San Francisco, a city by the bay  perfectly situated at Northern California brings you the best that it has to offer. You either feel guilty for ditching the checklist you have made by spending all day out exploring the bay area or not having enough time to see it all. It is definitely worth to spend a week or two to give yourself an ample time. Being said that, I should be penalized for spending only a day as I had to move further north to Yuba City before sun down for another adventure.

Golden Gate bridge -

A day in San Francisco will not be perfect without some flowers in your hair. A famous song sang by Scott McKenzie which sounds like this :

""   If you're going to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you're going to San Francisco
You're gonna meet some gentle people there

For those who come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there
In the streets of San Francisco
Gentle people with flowers in their hair""

                                                                           -Taken from YouTube-

True enough, as I was walking around in summer time humming this song in my mind down the streets of San Francisco. It brought me to meet some gentle people there. A bus driver was kind enough to stop at the traffic light to map my bus route to the Golden Gates even though it was showing green on the light. He did not rush me off nor the passengers in the bus. What a lovely day to begin with. Oh I love summer time in SF !

Alcatraz - the abandoned prison -

A bus ticket cost USD $ 2 per pax brought me from Civic Centre to Golden Gates with an interchange included. This same ticket allowed me to board a different bus from Golden Gates to a metro station which is connected to San Francisco Airport - Stay tune for upcoming stories on my next adventure. I walked the Golden Gates happily knowing that I saved my pocket from burning a hole
