My Trip To California In 15 Photos

I went to San Francisco this past weekend. It was amazing. It was my first time there. I fell in love with it.

This should hardly be a surprise to those who know me because I’m obsessed with technology. There’s plenty of it in the Bay Area, with all the tech companies based there. And they were well represented, from signs, to T-shirts, to overheard conversations, to headquarters, and so on.

Few people know but I also once considered moving there. It’s a place I could honestly see myself. It’s a place I’d consider down the road.

The Bay Area was stunning, right from Day 1, when the sun looked like this.

And a bonus photo. All great things come to an end, but even then, beautiful new things can come about. Like this sunrise while landing in New York.
