San Francisco – 2011

Growing slightly travel weary after a year away from home, Aidan and I decided to head back to New Zealand, home for the end of summer.

Our round the world tickets flew home via San Francisco – and we thought it would be a crime not to spend a few days in the Bay Area to see what the Californians are all about! San Francisco proved an amazingly cool place, progressive, green and full of the coolest shops and yummy food! We spent 4 days walking up and down hills, and checking out the sights – my favourite being the ‘Giant Camera’ by Ocean Beach – an incredible old Camera Obscura, reflecting the image of the beach below onto a disc in a small room. Real time video!
