2012 San Francisco Trip – Day 1

Today was a great day – I FINALLY got to visit San Francisco, California with Alex and his family. I’m in love with this city! πŸ™‚

The day started off early with a flight leaving MKE around 9:30 am. It doesn’t help that I’m absolutely terrified of flying. I was so scared that I cried the first few minutes of the flight and had to breathe my way out of a panic attack. I hate how scared I feel but I just can’t seem to control it!

I tried to soothe my in-flight terror with some light reading. I couldn’t finish the whole book since they started going into gruesome details of how animals are slaughtered so we can eat them.

This didn’t help my crazy phobia much…

4 hours, 2o minutes (ish) later, we arrived safely in San Francisco. After a little running around at the airport, we all had one thing on the brain – In N Out Burger!

Once we were all fueled up, we set off on a scenic route to get into downtown San Francisco where the hotel is. The next few pictures are all of the Golden Gate bridge but I’m absolutely in love with this stunning bridge. Love it! πŸ™‚

Once we got to the hotel, we relaxed a bit before heading out for Chinese food and wandering around Chinatown!

Afterwards, Alex and I wandered to a frozen yogurt place only to find out it was closed so we ordered a brownie sundae from the hotel instead πŸ™‚ Gotta get ready for tomorrow! (FYI don’t mind the bad coloring/whatever of this post. For some reason wordpress went haywire after I added all the pictures but I don’t have time to re-do them all!)

Has anyone else been in San Francisco? I love it here!

      It truly is great! Next time I think I’ll go there by myself or just my boyfriend so we’re able to see everything we want to see but it was still fun! I’m hoping to get some more posts up this week about the other things I did! πŸ™‚ Hopefully one day I’ll live in California – I love it there!
