Walking in San Francisco… (September 20th FFF)

I was invited (well, not personally, but still…) to join the Fandango’s Friday Flashback!

Fandango scrolls back, every Friday, and gives a second chance to a post he had published on the same date the year before. I thought it was a great way to remember some of the stuff I did a while back, and I decided to participate…

So here it is!

Previously posted on September 20th of 2016, here is a fictional roadtrip from three-years-ago me!

 


 

You’d think that after a 10 hours long shift, all I’d be in for would be to hop in my pjs, wrap myself in my favorite blanket and watch my favorite Monday tv shows…

But you know how it goes… You’re ready to take it easy, and a good friend calls in, and offers an unexpected roadtrip! Why not, right? I’m always ready for sightseeing in good company.

Tonight, I went to San Francisco… It was a first for me. Oh I had seen the city on tv several times, but it is never quite the same to be there!

As I said in former posts, I am not a big cities’ girl (says the girl living in Montréal, I know). I prefer the countryside, and the wilderness, but I must say I was all OOooOoohs an AAaaAaAhhhs when we got a first view of San Francisco from a distance.

I suddenly got excited, moving on my seat… “Are we there yet? Are we there yet?” My friend was probably already regretting his phone call to invite me over, but he was gentleman enough not to mention it…

I managed to tone down my anticipation, and we both made it to town unharmed (if you leave aside the few bruises after passing by yellow cabs… But that’s another story!) Here’s a short summary of our walk…

 

 

After a fancy meal at the nearest Mc Donald’s, I was shown the way home… I would have slept over, to enjoy another day of San Fransisco discovery tomorrow, but it could have been considered inapropriate to share another man’s hotel room, no matter how well behaved we both were.

Back home in Montréal, I am just left to hope I get a call again tomorrow, to see a little more of what California has to offer…

Thank you for the trip, my friend… It’s always sweet to travel with you!

    1. I hope to see it for myself someday… But this almost-roadtrip was the next best thing 🙂 I hope you had a good time there, I have a feeling you have friends to visit all around the globe!

  1. I love San Francisco our family went for a visit in April and it was a wonderful trip. We stayed a the Inn at the Presidio, one of the finest places I have ever stayed. Not super deluxe but elegant and relaxed in a superb environment. The door to the room we stayed in is in on the website…it was big enough for a family of 4. I hope you there if that is what you wish. https://www.presidiolodging.com/inn-at-the-presidio/
