USA – San Francisco Bay Area on a Self bicycle tour (1)

This is one of my personal trips to USA way back in mid 2007. During this trip, I visited a couple of places nearby which was within driving distance or within a day trip except for LasVegas where I stayed for a night. Anyway that’s another posting. 😊

Took a flight via Taipei, Taiwan before reaching SFO. Saw this colourful lantern decorations in the Taoyuan International Airport.


A long flight; 4 hours flight to Taiwan then a connecting 12 hours flight to San Francisco Airport.

A shot outside my window before the plane landed a SFO.


For my posting here, I will share my day trip on self bicycle tour around the Bay Area in San Francisco. Arrived at the Bay Area in late morning a day after I landed the day before. I took the Caltrain all the way to the San Francisco station.

First place I passed was the AT&T. It is a ballpark used for Major League Baseball, located in the South of Market neighborhood of San Francisco. It has served as the home of the San Francisco Giants of Major League Baseball since 2000.


Unmanned newpaper stands on the roadside.


I walked along the pier and managed to rent a bicycle to get around. By foot, I know I would not cover or get far.

Yacht Club at the San Francisco Bay Area.


Cycled along the cycling path passing under the San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge until I reached Pier 39. Lots of shops here and nice to walk around.



Lots of fridge magnet to choose from…..


…more selection.


Cute sign which I saw at Pier 39…..


More pictures to come. Stay tune…..

USA – A day trip to the Big Apple.. New York City (9)

If you have been following my 8th post; USA – A day trip to the Big Apple.. New York City (8) (wow.. that’s a lot on NYC) and the earlier posts, now I am headed to the famous Times Square.

It is really full of neon lights even when it was still early in the evening. Lots of yellow cab and people too. Jamming up the place and making it so lively.
