David and I decided to road trip to San Francisco this weekend so while I was at work on Friday David packed for me and got all of our things ready and picked me up from work and we were on our way!
If you have been following along on my instagram (IG: amberfillerup) you have probably seen some of our pics along the way.
We brought sleeping bags and we slept in the car (only for one night and stayed in a dirt cheap hostel/hotel one night) and we even brought cereal and milk and a stove with this camping food David has. We are currently saving majority of our money for big trips out of the country. We are hoping to make as many as we can this year so we decided to make this one an adventure, plus we have more fun this way. For us, we would rather go on 12 vacations and do it dirt cheap than go on 5 vacations and splurge. Neither of us are high maintenence when it comes to travel, like at all. I mean we could have gotten a nice hotel had we wanted to, but we figure we have our whole lives to be older and do vacations the ritzy way.. (nicer hotels, rental cars, nice restaurants, etc) but while we are young we want to be little adventurers and stay in hostels and take buses and subways and sleep in our car and eat in hole in the wall places and just be wild and young and fit in as many trips as we can! So that is kinda what we are doing!
These pics are the pictures from our camera from the first day! We did tons of walking and found that parking rates are freaking insane in this city. We also went into Chinatown and explored and found a cute little restaurant called Chinatown Restaurant on 744 Washington St. and they had a darling balcony you could eat on with romantic lights and pretty greenery. The food was good (I am not picky, so don't take my word on that) but David and I absolutely loved the setting. We were the only ones on the balcony and it was super romantic, so if you are in the area I definitely suggest going!
