After my wonderful 4 day trip to San Diego, I flew my tired and jet lagged butt home (after a red eye... lets talk about a rough commute). I slept, I ate and I packed my bags again. In between trips I had ONE full day off (an early release and late start made it feel like 2 but I also had 2 commutes in front of me- killer!) and on that one day off I was going to my friends wedding. In Cincinnati. Now wait a minute... I'm sure you are thinking "Hey, no problem! You're a Flight Attendant... you fly for free, right?!?!"
Right... but so wrong. See between DTW and CVG there are flights but there are also an Insane amount of commuters (most from my previous airline). To make the wedding I got in my car and drove 4 hours to Cincinnati on Saturday morning. I doubled up on the wedding excitement and met my mom for lunch and went wedding dress shopping with her (Loud excited voice here) and Bought my Wedding Dress!!!! Hoorrrrrray! Then I had time for a short nap until I had to get ready, pick up my friend Cari (my date) and make it to the wedding. The next morning I had to drive Back to Detroit- to commute to Boston to the FLY to San Francisco. A million hours later we landed in SFO, walked outside and was hit by some serious chilly air. Yikes... where you all to tell me to pack a jacket??? Or even a long sleeve shirt?
As you can imagine, I hit the hay pretty hard after my long day and woke up a good 8 hours later ready to hit the streets. I grabbed a cup of coffee and some snacks at the Whole Foods right around the corner from the hotel and planned my attack. I decided since this was my first time here, I was going to hit some Tourist sites and act like a proper out-of-towner.
First place I walked to was Ghiradelli Square. I was going to walk right on by all the chocolate but the smell was wayyyy to enticing. I had to get something so I opted for the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate... seriously good! I got my first glimpse of the Golden Gate bridge and walked along the park and beach area to Fisherman's Wharf.
I'm heading back to San Fran on the 9th of July... so anyone have any reccomendations on what I should do this next time???
