Day 26:  San Francisco

After the best breakfast on our trip so far, we we started in Oakland to San Francisco.

Equipped with cameras, a travel guide and umbrellas from our hosts, our aim was to see as many sights as possible.

After buying the tickets for the trip to Alcatraz Island, where the former prison is, we got on the long walk along the promenade to the Golden Gate Bridge.

Many photos and a coffee for recovering later, we went back to the city, where we were  looking for a cable car in vain, because of maintenance reasons.

We decided, to do a footwalk to Lombard Street, to see the world’s crookedest street.

A pizza for the happy end and this exciting second day in San Francisco was finished.

Thank you Herbert for sharing Day 26 and your experiences with your Tripping hosts with us!  Safe travels to Fiji!
