Golden Gate

Hello, again!

The month of August has been a bit crazy for me.  If you follow me on Instagram (although I've also been neglecting my grid...), you'll know that I've spent the past few weeks in California!  It was the first time in almost nine months that I was back in the US, making it the longest I've gone without returning for a visit.  Most of my family is from California, so it was great to be able to catch up with them.  I didn't make it back to Montana for this trip, but I'm currently planning on going back there for Christmas.

For two weeks I was in various parts of the Bay Area; one of my favorite bits of the area has always been San Francisco.  It's a city that I've been to countless times, but it's only been within the last few years that I've been wanting to experience it.  Last summer I made my way to the Painted Ladies, so this year I thought I would finally try to get to the Golden Gate Bridge.  This iconic landmark is one with San Francisco, yet I had never been.  My mom and I decided to stop there whilst driving to a relative's house, and miraculously we managed to find a parking spot.  Though a bit foggy, the views of the city were breathtaking.  The two annoying things about the experience would be the strong wind that made it hard to get a picture of myself with hair covering my face, and trying to find a spot to enjoy the view with all of the crowds.  It takes a bit of patience, but trust me a space will eventually open up.  We walked about halfway across the bridge, but the wind did get to us so we called it a day and headed to lunch (unpopular opinion: In'N'Out Burger isn't as good as Wendy's - or my personal favorite Smash Burger).

Now here's a bit of advice about the Golden Gate:

1) Lock your car doors.  Pick-pockets run rampant there, and are constantly looking for unlocked cars to knick things from.
2) Stay out of the bike lanes on the bridge when walking.  The walking lane and the bike lanes on the bridge are both narrow and next to each other, so it's easy to drift into the wrong side without realizing it.  My mom and I received many dirty looks from bikers.

Get ready: after not posting here for far too long, I have tons of content coming up soon.  I hope you're ready to relive my California adventure.

See you soon!
