My weekly ramble no. 32 My husband and I got to enjoy a rather rare kids-free weekend in San Francisco. Saturday night, we enjoyed a fun company party at the de Young Museum and on Sunday we met a good friend for brunch at Pat’s café on Taylor Street. It was glorious weather in the […]
Places in California, and things This is a new post in my series “My A to Z of California”. It seems now I finished this post, that everything important in California starts with an S. San Jose The first one of the list of places in California with a S has to be the city […]
Do you like to make a plan? I am a planner. I love making plans. Especially planning our next trip. A good friend recently said that I was not happy, if I wouldn’t have the next adventure lined up. I cannot contradict. Having a plan is in my nature. Writing a to-do, grocery or packing […]
Bay Area Summer Activities 2017 We’ve been living in the Bay Area for the last nine years and it’s only our second summer in which we are not going home to Germany. That’s why I made lots of plans what to do and already posted the list about 55 summer activities. Most of these things […]

I could take hundreds of pictures of this bridge. The red gate to this beloved city. The golden portal to the state I’m so blessed to live in. It’s beautiful even when it’s foggy. And I love how the edge of the café’s roof meets the bridge, trying to match its color. via Photo Challenge: […]
4 hours in San Francisco Yesterday I went to the city. I should do this more often. I love being in the city. I’m a city girl. I had coffee and cinnamon toast at Trouble Coffee Co. in the Outer Sunset District. I climbed the 16th Avenue Tiled Steps that lead to the Grand View […]
I wouldn’t say that hiking is one of my passions, but I always enjoy a good long walk, preferably with friends, in a beautiful place of which we have lots here in California. I find that it’s easier to talk while you walk. Walking is good for you in many ways. It is a low-cardio […]
