I already wrote about the Top 10 Things To Do In San Francisco a while ago, which listed the most famous tourist attractions in the city by the bay. In this post I want to share some San Francisco Insider Tipps with you, that I've discovered during my time there. So if you don't want to do the typical tourist things there, this is the list you should stick to!
While growing up in Germany where access to the sea is quite limited (but yes - we do have a coast line indeed), growing up I spend a lot of time at different lakes instead. However, my favourite lake so far is Lake Tahoe! During my time in San Francisco I actually got to visit the area more than once (which is another plus for the city - Tahoe is just reeeeally close!). In this post I want to share why I love Lake Tahoe so much. Feel free to share your favourite lake in the comments!
Even though I haven't had the chance to explore all of Oahu's beautiful beaches, I would like to introduce you to my top 3 favorite beaches on the Hawaiian island so far: Pipeline Beach, Mokuleia Beach and Laniakea Beach. Find out more about those beautiful places in this post!
Holy shit I swam with sharks! And it was my fault, actually. After getting an amazing trip to Hawaii for my birthday, I thought it was a very good idea to book a shark swimming activity for me and my boyfriend (what on earth was going on in my mind? That was the exact question my roommate at that time was asking me but somehow I still thought it was the best idea ever). And it was!
One of our other adventures during our Hawaii vacation earlier this year was a hike along the epic Na Pali Coast of Kauai. For an entire day we hiked the Kalalu Trail directly along the coast of Hawaii's "Garden Island" and it was definitely the most amazing trail I hiked so far. Naturally, this activity deserves its own post on here! The rugged coast line offers amazing views so be sure not to miss it once you make it to the Island State!
Hawaii's Garden Island is definitely worth a visit as it offers some of the most scenic views among the archipelago. That is the reason why Kauai has provided the backdrop of some serious Hollywood adventure movies. After already writing about our stay on Oahu, I now want to tell you a bit more about our stay on the second island we visited during our Hawaii vacation this year. I know you've all been waiting for this.
It's almost that time of the year again so it's the perfect opportunity to tell you about my last birthday, as I got the most amazing birthday gift ever - A TRIP TO HAWAII. Can you believe it? I Still can't. During our stay in the Aloha State, we were able to explore two out of the eight major islands - Oahu and Kauai. As Hawaii is probably one of the dream destinations of almost everyone, I am planning on sharing around a bazillion posts about our vacation! The first one starts with our trip to the main island Oahu.
I am planning to write about a lot about my adventures, but the first post in this category has to be about my favorite city on earth: San Francisco. After living in this city for a while I might be a bit biased, but still - it's a great place and I would totally recommend to visit! Like...really!
