A couple weeks ago Amiram and I decided to start our 2015 discovering new things. We headed out to the West Coast to see all the things that, I’ve decided, not enough people talk about. As someone who has traveled all the way around the world, taking flights for 24 hours, to see the sun rise off the shore of Thailand, California has some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.
We started our road trip down Hwy 1 in San Francisco, CA. I wasn’t wow’d by San Fran. Clearly, I am not making a judgement call after only spending one day there. However, I think I’ve romanticized San Fran a little too much in my mind. (As shown by our first stop above.) The expectations I set for the city might have been too much. I’ve always had this bohemian idea of San Francisco with the hills, and open minded thinkers, hippies full of love, and like minded people wanting to make a change. This is not what I experience. I experienced a bunch of tech nerds that are rapidly changing the city. For better or worse… the city wasn’t full of folk singers peacefully bringing awareness to human rights. The city was full of expensive real estate and a lot of “cool” and “hip” restaurants. But, it was very beautiful and we had a wonderful time!
