Travelling to States has been on my bucket list forever; I always thought my first trip would be to NYC. Destiny had plans of taking me to the beautiful city by the bay and of course the famous golden gate bridge.
Coming from the horrible English weather; sunny San Fran felt like heaven with a cooling breeze. The architectural structure of the city is just amazing. Large swathes of its hilly residences give the most beautiful aesthesis when you standing on top.
Disclaimer to note is that San Francisco apparently is the most expensive city in California on the West Coast. The Bay view and the famous golden gate bridge does make the trip worthwhile.
