After the Google conference, we did not let it take us and spent the weekend there to look at the city and surroundings away from work. San Francisco is a stunning city, offering a change that I have never seen before.

Our hotel was about half an hour outside of San Francisco (this time we managed only thanks to the Fahrgeminschaftsspur), which was thanks to the rental car but no problem. Our hotel was on the water and was very nice, so service was good. It was like being in a small town, but if you went to San Francisco you would be in a big city within half an hour. But if you drove in a different direction for half an hour, you were either in a beautiful green landscape in which every 20km you might find a farmer by the road. But you can also find densely overgrown forests or the desert if you choose a different direction, I personally found this scene change very nice, something I have not seen before. Here you will never be bored and for a vacation you have to plan a few days to see everything you want. We were limited in time, but luckily we had Thimo here who was already there several times. This allowed us to make a good plan and have seen a lot in a little time. Anyone who has been following our social media channels has certainly seen some photos, if not you can still look at them, there are real highlights here. PIER39, Cable Car, Silicon Valley and the beautiful West Coast are some of the places we visited and each one had its own particularity. After visiting NASA, Google or Apple, we went to American classics like AppleBee's, Jack in The Box or the famous Cheesecake Factory. The food was always delicious and the portions were sufficient, you can say the food there is extreme, so sweet is really cute but spicy and really spicy, but I think everyone will find something there. Because even if the classics do not inspire you, there are moderately other restaurants where you get pretty much everything you can imagine sivch. It was a beautiful and exciting journey and I am looking forward to the next one. In conclusion, I can only make a clear recommendation, San Francisco is in my opinion a destination that makes everyone happy, if someone there is unhappy always remember, the complete converse is only a short drive away.
