Let me be honest, 2015 was tough. So I was more than happy to ring in the new year, full of hope for better things to come.
One of my dear friends Allison lives in California and I have been wanting to visit her for a while. Since I had some time off around Christmas, I decided to spend New Years with her. Allison planned a trip to San Francisco for us since it had been a while since she had been to the city, and I am so glad she did.
We spent several days exploring, celebrating, and eating our way through San Francisco, and it was amazing. I loved every moment. Since Allison and I traveled the world together, we have a similar style of travel where we plan a loose schedule but leave room for ample spontaneous adventures.
San Francisco has a great public transportation system which we took full advantage of. We also enjoyed walking all around the city and averaged about nine miles of walking a day! Which meant we could eat as much of the fabulous food as we wanted. I enjoyed Japanese Ramen, Thai food, Indian food, and incredible brunch at Mission Beach Cafe.
Shortly before the holidays I also finally invested in a DSLR camera and I brought it along to get used to using it. Allison, a photography wiz, graciously showed me some tips and took some photos and video with my new camera as well.
I have declared 2016 the “year of new adventures” and it has already proven to be just that. Cheers to 2016 and all the new experiences life brings.
