San Francisco Day 3

This morning we slept in and woke up with slightly sore and tired legs and glutes. Too much walking uphill I think! So today we opted for a more relaxing day of shopping and the hop on hop off bus.

Day 3 Plan
  • Brunch at The Cheescake Factory
  • Buy a new pair of shoes because my shoes are not made for walking long distances
  • Hop on hop off bus to Golden Gate Bridge
  • Shopping

San Francisco Day 2

I did not want to wake up at 8am this morning but I had booked our Alcatraz tour for 10am so did not have much choice. We had planned to walk from our hotel to the pier (approximately 40min walk) but ended up taking the taxi as I put the alarm on snooze. Whoops.

Day 2 Plan
  • Alcatraz Tour
  • Explore/Rest
  • Dinner at Gary Danko (1 Michelin Star)

San Francisco Day 1

Hellooo San Francisco! Today is our first day and first time in USA, we arrived into San Francisco late last night and thanks to a super comfortable flight (we were able to lie down and sleep) and a great night sleep at the hotel, neither of us were jet lagged and we were ready to explore the city of San Francisco at 9:30am.  

Day 1 Plan
  • Get our bearings
  • Explore

Bar de Halcyon

RW who shares an office with MD and I decided to leave us and we thought that was a good excuse to organise an outing after work.  So I got busy sending out emails to the rest of the team as we brainstormed venues and RW came up with Bar de Halcyon, a newcomer to Wolf Lane.

I tried to book a table as there were about 10 of us but was told that they don't take bookings and that we shouldn't have a problem getting a table after work on a Thursday.  When we arrived at about 5pm it was still relatively empty downstairs but it was more than half full upstairs and lucky enough we were able to secure a table upstairs to fit 10 people.
