Tassie

Tasmania is an island part of Australia, located at the very bottom of the mainland. Known as Tassie, the island is place of breathtaking natural parks and reserves.

We made our way to Tassie on the Spirit of Tasmania. Then we hired a car and drove along the east coast to Hobart. Perfect place for camping, hiking and enjoying the nature. ❤

Family Visit to Australia

What a special visit! I have no words to describe how good it was to receive my mum, grandma and uncle here in the land Down Under. We had 22 days together and I planned everything to make sure they would see all the beautiful things and have the best experience. It was worth it a thousand times.

I’ll leave you with the pictures.

12 Things to do in San Francisco, California

 

1. Ride across the Golden Gate Bridge

Blue sky and weather warm enough for a bike ride on such a winters day… It’s worth it a thousand times, such a enjoyable experience and the views… oh! Breathtaking!

2. Union Square Shopping

Forever 21!

Apart from the one on the corner of Union Square (Powell St), there’s another store one block away from it and a lot less crowded (located at Stockton St x Market St).

 

3. Cable car ride

If you are staying for a few days it is worth it to get a weekly pass (they allow you ride most of public transport, including the Cable car, which one single ride can cost you US$6).

4. Alcatraz

Creepy tour. But worth it and interesting. Book at least one week in advance, or you might miss it.

5. Fisherman’s Wharf

I heard from most locals to avoid this place because it is the most touristic place in town. Well, I was a tourist myself, so I had to check this out. In fact, I ended up coming here three our four times, since most of the tourist things to do started here (such as the bike ride, the Alcatraz cruise, etc.)

The whole waterfront of piers is a tourist sight. You can walk along it to see:

  • The Port of San Francisco (where cruise ships come and go)

  • Pier 39 (Where the sea lions gather themselves)

  • Ferry Building Market

  • Alcatraz Cruise tour

  • Bike rentals

  • There’s an Applebee’s on the left hand side once you get to the end of the piers.

  • You can get a cable car all the way back to the city

See, with so many things to do and see on Fisherman’s Wharf you won’t want to miss it.

 

6. Silicon Valley and Mount View Must Do’s

  • Bike ride through Googleplex! Oh Yeah!

  • Check in Facebook Head Quarters, because why not, right?

  • Apple. Period.

 

7. Conservatory of Flowers

It’s closed on Mondays. So make sure you don’t make the same mistake I did.
