US Roadtrip: Bye bye SF, See ya US!

And here it is the last one of our road trip. This is a sad post for me because I wish I could extend the trip until next summer and be like in a loop of virtual eternal vacation :) but well, it is kind of weird already that we are posting these sunny pictures when it is mid-November. With the unusual hot weather of this fall in Barcelona, I have just pretended all this time that we were in the south hemisphere, so everything makes sense.

I know that (almost) everything I could say to sum up a trip will sound like a cliché, but you know, I don’t mind :) This has been an incredible journey to a favorite country of ours. I like how rich it has been in diversity of landscapes and adventures, and how sweet everyone has been. Also, travelling in a long trip with friends has been altogether an exciting and unique experience; we love you guys, no matter how fed up with us you are (hahaha).

Taking into account the diversity of the trip it is hard to decide a favorite part, but I feel brave so I’ll go ahead and say that I am ready to come back to Arizona and explore more Utah any time. San Francisco is also in our see-you-soon lists. That may say a lot (or nothing at all) of our feelings. However the same preferences may not apply to the results of our pictures, have you ever felt that sometimes you love a place but are not able to photograph its awesomeness enough? That happens for us in every trip!

The only thing left to say is see you soon US! You were an amazing host.

If you wish to check, here it is our entire itinerary in posts:

  • We ♥ movies (Los Angeles)
  • Venice beach
  • Seligman
  • Wild West (Gran Canyon and such :P)
  • Roll the dice (Las Vegas)
  • Peggy Sue’s diner (while on the road)
  • Mariposa

  • In the woods (Yosemite National Park)
  • San Francisco
  • Alcatraz
  • Last ones in San Francisco (this post)

  • Thanks a lot for travelling with us, it is truly a joy!

    Chinatown SF - The cat, you and us

    Chinatown in San Francisco is really into decorations, but I will not complain, lanterns make me swoon :)

    Chinatown SF - The cat, you and us San Francisco slope - The cat, you and us

    We live in a very flat land, so playing with the slopes was a must! Check out Dani’s almost dripping Pumpkin latte.

    Cable car signs in Chinatown have the information written in Chinese. How neat is this detail?

    SF cable car -The cat, you and us

    This is one of the historical cable cars of the city. They are commanded using a lever in the back.

    Once inside the cable car it is advisable to be gripped at all times.

    Or maybe you do not have to? Dani is checking the GPS.

    The girl who insisted to take a picture with Dani on the back, should I be jealous? ;) We were there and she just jumped into our frame a second before taking the picture. She took several pictures like this one (well, maybe not exactly like this one as hers were taken with a phone).

    There is a popular alley that goes between Valencia and Dolores St that has lots of graffiti. A boy that was touring some friends came near the alley and pointing out said: this is a hipster place. I would say it is a “hey-you-look-nice” place :)

    And a picture of us together in the hope that our romantic readers will appreciate it ;) (let’s read Fiona here) Thanks to everyone for following along! It has been extraordinary and a feast each time we have received a comment.

  9. Laura ADDS...

    Love your photos of your trip to America! You should come visit here in Canada. I may be biased but I think it’s even more beautiful.

      Hahaha, thanks Laura! :) we hope Canada is in our near future travelling adventures it certainly is in our whislist.

  10. jessica ADDS...

      Thanks Jessica! This time we are not going to post a recap for the trip (sad face here :S). But here are our favorite places to eat, stay and visit:

      Places to eat: Mission Cheese and Frjtz in San Francisco, Peggy Sue in Yermo (CA), Umami in Los Angeles, and The Groundwork coffee in Venice beach

      Places to stay: We rented apartments in both San Francisco & Los Angeles via airbnb (we can send you the contact!), the Comfort Inn & Suites hotel in Page was also a good value, the Venice hotel is an excellent choice for Las Vegas (we booked through and my favorite has to be the cottage in Mariposa (near Yosemite).

      Places to visit: Secret Canyon (instead of Antelope Canyon) & Grand Canyon, Sentinel Dome (Yosemite), Alcatraz in SF, Graffitti alley in Valencia St (and all the street for that matter), jump into the poles of a cable car in SF (avoid taking it at a main stop, use the rest of the route to avoid the longest queues ever), Disneyland and be sure to stop at Seligman (amazing one-street route 66 town)

      If you need more tips, go quick ahead to the About section to send us a private email! We will be very happy to share and discuss more about the trip :)
