Last stop ??San Francisco??
Finally we are in San Francisco, America. What an amazing opportunity I have had to travel around the world, and meet some cool people. But now three and a half months of travelling is all coming to an end. Anyway enough of that emotional stuff lets see what I get up to in San Francisco.
First off we head to the water front to hire some bikes to ride over the Golden Gate Bridge all the way to Sausalito to have lunch. A great ride with lots of photo opportunities along the way and thankfully not too many hills. Lots of fun and a great way to see San Fran.
San Fran turns out to be what I expected, full of hills and fire engines but what surprised me the most was how friendly the locals are with directions and just being nice in general.
Next up, we check out Lombard Street the steepest street in the world (check out the photos it's pretty crazy to me) and now we are feeling our thighs burning due to the practically vertical hills in San Fransisco.
It's all down hill from here kids because we are heading to pier 23 to catch the ferry to the rock. Alcatraz. Jack has watched every single movie, you tube clip and all the way to documentaries. He even knows all the fire exits so as you can see this is a pretty exciting outing for him. Through the entire history of the rock many people have tried to escape but only three men have known to find there way across and out of Alcatraz but no one knows if they made it past the Sharks and survived to reach San Francisco Bay.
Next up we head to Pier 39 to check out the sea lions and spend some cash in the arcade watching 7d blaster games. We had the classic San Fran speciality clam chowder served in sourdough bread bowls - it had to be done.
We have a boys only day and send mum off shopping so us boys can go to the Exploratorium - the most amazing hands on science museum. They make science seem like fun! Hundreds of different things to do and see - we loved it and highly recommend it.
Finally we can't leave San Fran without a cable car ride through San Francisco hills - I'm literally hanging out for it (due to the tight space on the tram)
Doing a world trip is the best thing I have ever and will ever do in my life. Travelling is a great way to experience our big world and that's what I did. We have meet some amazing people and gone to some of the most beautiful places on Earth. But now it's all come to a end and there's a couple of amazing people I'd like to thank.
Mum and dad for making it possible
All of our hosts for giving us great places to stay
My Aunty Jack for coming and meeting us in London, Venice and Paris
And last but not least Mr Howerd and Room One for posting lots of messages on my blog
