My boyfriend and I just got back from a whirlwind trip to San Francisco - we ate a lot, walked a lot + and saw A LOT. When I 'vacation', I tend to do a lot of planning and want to do everything while I'm there. Some people may want to relax on vacation, not this girl. Don't get me wrong, I love lounging as much as the next person, but exploring new cities is one of my favorite things to do. I love creating daily iteneraries and seeking out the lovely coffee shops, delicious dinner places, and prettiest scenery. My boyfriend is so sweet and pretty much lets me take the reigns on the planning end of things. We saw some of the most beautiful, breathtaking views on this trip and were completely overwhelmed. From Mount Tamalpais, to Muir Woods, to Big Sur - manmade things just do not even compare to what nature has to offer (although, the Golden Gate Bridge is pretty impressive). These pictures barely do any justice to these beautiful places, but I gave it a try anyways! Check out a few of our pit stops from the trip!
