After Pier 39, I boarded a boat to have a closer look at the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island.

A couple of months ago, I had to be in San Francisco for a few days. On my first full day, I went for a walk: Starting in the morning from my hotel near Union Square, I walked down Market Street to the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero. I then went through Chinatown on my way up Telegraph Hill to the Coit Tower and its observatory. After the Tower, I walked down the other side of the hill to Pier 39. At that point, I boarded a boat to have a closer look at the Golden Gate Bridge.

Starting in De Pijp, I went on a walk, first to Beatrixpark then went on to the Zuidas Business District. On the way back, I walked through Vondelpark and Museumplein.
