WanderKids at Golden Gate Bridge 2009



When I posted about visiting San Francisco for Thanksgiving last year, I showed the photos we’d taken of our boys with the Golden Gate bridge in the background on previous trips. This has become a family tradition which we were hoping to be able to continue on this trip. Well, we did get a photo, but from the south side of the bridge – whereas all our previous photos had been taken from the north.

The reason why is simple: public transportation. San Francisco has a great bus, tram and train network, which we used every day – and found easy to use, easy to navigate and cheap. But it was not easy to take a public bus over the Golden Gate Bridge on a Sunday – and still have time to do anything else. We considered compromising on our ‘public transit only‘ goal, but in the end decided that a photo from the other side of the bridge would serve just as well.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    The bridge makes an awesome backdrop every time.
    I have this picture of my son and I in front of the bridge on our fridge, and I’m looking at it the other day and even though it seems like just yesterday, he already looks so much older :(
