If you are going to San Francisco

Blog / August 2014

Be sure to do all the awesome things I did

Scratched the travel itch just a little bit this month and finally got myself to San Francisco! All beneath the guise of work–you can see my WeddingBells honeymoon feature right here, a travel Chatelaine piece right here, and an inevitable spa stop turned Elevate review here–I had a blast, got lots of uphill exercise, hummed the Fullhouse theme the whole time. Everywhere you look!

After a long and tearful adventure there, we finally landed here at the Farmhouse Inn in the Russian River Valley. There is a steam shower and the biggest bathtub I’ve ever seen and I no longer even remember the flight.

Oh yes, Napa and wineries. Look at me, I’m a natural.

Two days of this business had me ready to face the world again, and it’s a world in a renovated chocolate factory at the Fairmont Heritage Place residences in Ghirardelli Square.

I have my own dining room, but I mostly eat chocolate.

We do all the tourist stuff, cause I’m a dork like that. Putting all those Orange is the New Black hours to work at Alcatraz.

And pink flamingos at the San Francisco Zoo, of course, cause they’re my favourite cause they’re so pink.

Oh yeah, and something about a bridge. Everywhere you look!
