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.
