Travel: "He Said" Best of San Francisco

My Favorite Parts:
Breakfast in United Airlines First Class. Whenever possible, we opt to get bumped so we can earn a free plane ticket and an upgrade to first class on our next flight. Everyone was so nice to us in first class and the breakfast was really quite delicious.Not only was our hotel room reasonably priced and in the heart of Union Square and near all sorts of public transportation, we also got a free rubber ducky.Our "go to" meal in San Francisco was the New England Clam Chowder in a sourdough bread bowl from Boudin Bakery, which is also what we ate right before our wedding.
The view of the city from de Young Museum's tower was quite stunning and the best part was that it was free.Though the MUNI is really confusing, the three day pass was well worth the money. The only time we took a cab was on our wedding day with our photographer.The french fries with truffle oil from Frjtz was really good, especially paired with wasabi mayo.I love how biking is huge in San Francisco. Though I feel Chicago has more bike lanes and actually more bike friendly.Our best meal was at Brenda's French Soul Food. The flight of beignets, especially the crayfish beignet and the pot pie with andouille sausage and crayfish was really delicious.Though it was really difficult, I really enjoyed walking up and down the hills. The sights were amazing and it was a good workout.The day we biked across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito on our tandem was such a great day. Though our timing was off and we had to walk up the hill a few times, it was so much fun working as a team on the tandem.
Plus we got some quiet time in Sausalito.The view of the bridge was amazing from the ferry which took us back from Sausalito.I think our wedding was perfect at city hall, wearing Vans, and carrying a backpack of flowers.Though San Francisco was great, the best part of our trip was coming home to see Ms. M and Mr. B.

I'm glad I just ate because the food pictures look too good! Flying first class is almost cruel because when you go back to coach...ouch!
It sounds like you had a wonderful time and I'm impressed by the enthusiasm your pooches showed you upon your return. I can see they are now worn out!

While John & I were on our honeymoon in Mexico we kept saying things like: The dogs would have so much fun running across the beach!... Wouldn't it be nice to crash with them right now?... Would love to watch 'em in the waves... Was fab to get away, but so lovely to come home too :)

Congrats again!
