September Sun – Final Leg

This one’s short. Two underwhelming meals (sandwiched between a pretty cool YWAM Christian event, of which I sadly have no photos) and I was jetting back to the UK. At least I had some final rays of September sunshine to enjoy.

J had gone off to a Bachelor’s party at this point, so my Christian colleague/friend kindly invited me to join her and her boyfriend for a meetup of sorts. Stopping on the way to get a portion of the famous In-N-Out Burgers and Animal Fries. If I’m really honest I was a bit more excited at the prospect of burger than Christian event (I hadn’t really heard of the organisation the event was for). Plus, apparently In-N-Out were founded by Christian owners and have Bible verses inked discreetly on their packaging, so quite fitting really.

So This SF Trip From September… [Napa Valley]

…It’s about time I finished writing about it methinks, don’t you? It’s February 2015 already and I’m still blogging about events that happened almost 5 months ago. Mega. Fail.

I was told that a trip in SF was not complete without a visit to Napa, the local valley of vineyards. We started off at Elyse Winery, where le boyf had a free tasting session for us courtesy of his friend with membership there.

The Sunglass Hut & The Golden Gate Bridge

Disclaimer: as far as I know The Sunglass Hut and Golden Gate Bridge have nothing to do with each other. We were just taking photos with our new sunglasses (brought from the Sunglass Hut, and there’s a story about them below) at the Golden Gate Bridge, hence the title. Apologies in advance for any confusion or disappointment, I hope it won’t stop you reading the post ;)

The next day was our last day together, so I took a half day off, and was whisked away to take selfies at the Golden Gate Bridge.

Akiko’s Restaurant – Sushi Heaven in SF

On one of our last evenings together in SF, my boyfriend took me out for what was undoubtedly the most delicious sushi meal of my life so far.  Practically every mouthful was of the freshest, most buttery, melt-in-your-mouth fish I’d ever tasted.

We went to Akiko’s and ordered the Omakase (chef’s choice), per J’s foodie friend’s recommendation.  And boy were we grateful for that recommendation.  Let me take you on a beautiful journey of mouthwatering morsels.

Are you ready?
