Walk around San Francisco

Woke up early and decided to take a walk before going to breakfast/lunch. The food in the hotel is a joke (melon and pastries), so better to get som decent food out.

We only knew where we wanted to go, not how to get there. So we ended up walking through a bigger part of downtown San Francisco. Up over very  steep roads, so steep that cars had to park 90 degrees and not along the road as most other streets, and down the other side.

We went to see the famous windy roads of Lombard street, through Little Italy and Chinatown. After almost 3 hours of walking we ended back at Union Square where we had lunch at “The Cheesecake Factory” ontop of the equally famous Macy’s.

Back out to town to get a lense for the camera, in the same shop as last time we were here in 2008. Then on a search for a suitcase. You can’t get those cheap in downtown San Francisco, and espescially not in places like Bloomingdales and Nordstrom. $500 for a small “designer” suitcase. We just need a little extra space for stuff we buy, not something that packs itself for us. So we ended up taking the tram to the piers again where we knew they had some cheaper alternatives. Now we have some extra luggage space for all the things we know we are going to buy but not planned on buying.

Tomorrow is the last day in San Francisco before we head on to the next stop. Hawaii here we come. We’ll get there quite late so probably won’t hear much from us tomorrow. Here are some pics taken from our walk today.
