California, part 1: Telegraph Hill






When you visit San Francisco, they tell you to walk up the stairs on Telegraph Hill. There is a reason for that: these stairs are kind of a little bit magical. You climb up and up and up, peaking into people's gardens and surrounded by green, and then you turn around and get a spectacular view of the San Francisco Bay. When I lived in San Francisco the year after college, whenever I got sad about missing the East Coast, I would climb Telegraph Hill and remember how lucky I was to live in such an beautiful place. Of course I would start my California trip here: it reminds me of all of my favorite things about my time out west.


  1. i am reaaaaaally tired of still having not seen san fran. it looks amazing whenever i see it on blogs/and such. gorgeous!

    1. Oh, you've got to go! It's the best. And enough people go there from Boston that you can usually find pretty good deals on airfare.
