My virgin trip to the US – Part 2

Apologies for the long hiatus! Here’s my US trip Part 2! And this time, it’s to San Francisco! Was in US for 2 weeks, and spent the precious weekends over at San Francisco (where some others went to Lake Tahoe!). I wasn’t prepared for the cold weather at Lake Tahoe, but i’m all prepared, looking forward to my trip to San Francisco!

We drove for 2 hours from Roseville to San Francisco, got lost (or we were probably going round to look for carpark), and finally reached our destination! Took the “cable car” up to Fisherman’s Wharf and back down for more shopping! I am truly amazed by the “cable car” because i stood all the way up to Fisherman’s Wharf, and the way up took around 30mins! It was definitely an eye opener!

I had a great trip to the US. Even though it’s for business, i had a well-spent weekend, thanks to my colleagues! It was definitely an eye-opener, and i really love the place! Hope to visit some other places in the US soon!

I’m targeting to travel to more different states of the US in future! Travelling is fun!🙂
