Day 4 So, the last full day we were in San Fran, we decided to do a City Tour. Backwards, huh?! Well, it was a pretty good tour to round out the weekend. After not throwing our boarding pass in the trash and dumping coffee on it, we boarded the bus for a 3 hour […]

My sister and I left last Thursday for San Francisco directly after work. I took the Orange Line to Midway while my mom called me about 80 times to make sure I was on the right train. I wasn't sure at first, but after I heard "This is the Orange Line to Midway" about 20 […]
