The Golden Gate Bridge

We certainly were going to San Francisco.

San Fran would have to be one of my favourite cities in the States that I have been to. It has a similar atmosphere to Sydney, which was my home for many years, so I felt very comfortable in San Fran.

The first stop for us was The Golden Gate Bridge. We stopped at a fantastic vantage point to take some photos. Afterwards, the bus deposited us at the hotel and we met back up again in the afternoon for a cruise around San Francisco Bay. The cruise started prior to the sun setting and took us past Alcatraz, and then after the sun had set it was time to let our hair down and put our inhibitions aside for some Karaoke. Each morning on the bus, our tour guide would play our ‘morning song’, to get us in the mood for the day.

The Golden Gate Bridge
Our morning song was ‘California Dreaming’ by the Mamas & the Papas, so it was the first song we all got up to sing. All through the night we were up and down from the microphone, the Aussie boys got up to sing ‘Land Down Under’ by Australian band Men at Work. All the men got down on their knees to sing ‘You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling’ to us girls, so the girls replied by singing ‘Like a Virgin’ back to them.

It was a fantastic night and a great (official) finish to our tour. Well mine anyway. About half the people left the tour here in San Francisco and the others continued back down the Pacific Coast Highway to Los Angeles.

I had three night booked in the same hotel as where the tour stayed, and they stayed for three nights in San Fran as well, so it worked our perfectly.
