I arrived in San Francisco and was greeted by a freezing city... By far the coldest place I've been too, doesn't seem like summer at all, and I didn't plan for cold weather when I packed. I met up with Aaron, Jess, Hannah and Tammy and set off to the car hire place..
Our booked car wasn't there, so they upgraded us to a Dodge Charger, so cool! Headed off in our new wheels and checked in at our crappy crowded hotel room!
Day 2 in SF - we went on our prebooked tour of Alcatraz which was an awesome day, such cool history and an awesome view of the city from the island
Day 3 took us down to Santa Cruz, which was by far my favorite day of the trip so far. We spent the whole day at the theme park on the boardwalk. Was such an amazing place, although once again it was freezing!! So much fun though, I went on the big dipper roller coaster five times. We all turned mega tourists and each bought a Santa Cruz hoodie to fight the cold.
Our last day in San Fran was relaxing before going to see the Giants V Dodgers baseball game at AT&T Park. The first baseball experience for the other guys, and it was fun sharing and explaining what was happening.
We did take a rather fun trip to see the 'Metallica headquarters' for Tammy. When we got there Tammy soon Realised that it was a big secret and no one was allowed in. A chick with tattoos that we saw leave the building even lied to us about what was inside, saying she didn't know but then we saw her go back in!! Funny story to tell, probably don't do it justice on here though.
Saturday is the start of our road trip to Vegas!!! Can't wait, the next entry will be from the penthouse at the Bellagio!!
