During our road trip to Idaho from California, I can't help myself to be amazed of the sceneries/views I saw in the road. It's my first time and I just took photos as much as I can in a moving vehicle. I was like OMG I swear I saw this this road on movies only and now I see it with my own eyes. It was a memorable experience to me. Crossing Nevada and then Oregon was just awesome, straight roads and brown surroundings beautiful skies were just perfect. When we reached Oregon the sky was getting dark. Still I took photos and when it was really dark thats the time I took rest. I fall asleep, we arrived Idaho at past 12 midnight. We leave California at 7am. It was a long drive but I enjoyed it. I am thankful to my hubby for letting me experience such a long drive. We will definitely do it again. He's just like me, we love road trip! Below are the photos I took. Some of it were blurry but some were great :)

Were heading to Idaho from California, and guess what? We went land travel and means it was Roadtrip :) :) Yay. Hahaha yeah I know its a long drive it was like 11 hours and of course I'm not driving hahaha pity for my driver (hubby) but if you're driving in this beautiful country with a stunning view I guess its worth it. Roadtrip is great because you can stop if you can see a beautiful spot a beautiful sceneries. Every time I saw beautiful spot I always told my hubby to stop and the 11 hours drive become 16 hours drive haha. The stop I really liked the most was the Lake Tahoe. Ohh my God It was so beautiful, I can't describe just I can't close my mouth for kept on saying WOW all the time hahaha I can stay there all day, but were still far from Idaho. We just stayed like an hour, I swear Lake Tahoe is still in our bucket list to visit. I wanna go back there again someday and stay for a day or two and explore more of the place.

Lake Tahoe is a large freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, straddling the border of California and Nevada. It’s known for its beaches and ski resorts. On the southwest shore, Emerald Bay State Park contains the 1929 Nordic-style mansion Vikingsholm. Along the lake’s northeast side, Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park includes Sand Harbor Beach and Spooner Lake, a gateway to the long-distance Tahoe Rim Trail.

I got the same feelings when I first saw London Tower Bridge in England when I saw this bridge. I got goosebumps. I never thought i can see this bridge in person. We plan to drive across on it after cruising but sad to say we didnt because of what happened to us  someone's broke our car . Maybe next time, next visit hopefully. 

The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the one-mile-wide (1.6 km) strait connecting San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The structure links the American city of San Francisco, California – the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula – to Marin County, carrying both U.S. Route 101 and California State Route 1 across the strait. The bridge is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco, California, and the United States. It has been declared one of the Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
The Frommer's travel guide describes the Golden Gate Bridge as "possibly the most beautiful, certainly the most photographed, bridge in the world." At the time of its opening in 1937, it was both the longest and the tallest suspension bridge in the world, with a main span of 4,200 feet (1,280 m) and a total height of 746 feet (227 m).

The first place we went to in San Francisco was the Alcatraz Island. 
Alcatraz Island (/ˈælkəˌtræz/) is located in San Francisco Bay, 1.25 miles (2.01 km) offshore from San Francisco, California, United States. The small island was developed with facilities for a lighthouse, a military fortification, a military prison (1828), and a federal prison from 1934 until 1963. Beginning in November 1969, the island was occupied for more than 19 months by a group of Native Americans from San Francisco, who were part of a wave of Native activism across the nation, with public protests through the 1970s. In 1972, Alcatraz became part of a national recreation area and received designation as a National Historic Landmark in 1986.
Today, the island's facilities are managed by the National Park Service as part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area; it is open to tours. Visitors can reach the island in a little under 15 minutes by ferry ride from Pier 33, located between the San Francisco Ferry Building and Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco. Hornblower Cruises and Events, operating under the name Alcatraz Cruises, is the official ferry provider to and from the island.
Alcatraz Island is home to the abandoned prison, the site of the oldest operating lighthouse on the West Coast of the United States, early military fortifications, and natural features such as rock pools and a seabird colony (mostly western gulls, cormorants, and egrets). According to a 1971 documentary on the history of Alcatraz, the island measures 1,675 feet (511 m) by 590 feet (180 m) and is 135 feet (41 m) at highest point during mean tide. However, the total area of the island is reported to be 22 acres (8.9 ha).
Landmarks on the island include the Main Cellhouse, Dining Hall, Library, Lighthouse, the ruins of the Warden's House and Officers' Club, Parade Grounds, Building 64, Water Tower, New Industries Building, Model Industries Building, and the Recreation Yard. (Wiki)

Our unfortunate awful experience in San Francisco California. 

I came from Philippines and my husband is from Idaho. He drove eleven hours from Idaho to California to visit his family and of course to pick me up in SFO. His family is in Merced its like three hours drive to San Francisco. He never really been to SF that much and he wants to explore SF with me, so we decided to stay for two nights in SF before going to Merced. We had really great time exploring SF on our first day. On our second day we checked out from the hotel and went look for a parking because we planned to had lunch first before heading to Merced. We parked in Waterfront Plaza Parking Garage its near to Pier 39 where we plan to had lunch. We parked at 11:30 am and head to Pier 39, we explore Pier 39 and had lunch. When we came back to the parking we were so surprised and shocked to see the back window of our car was broken. OMG all of our stuff were gone. All my three luggages that I brought with me from Philippines was gone, all gone nothings left. Good thing my passport and important documents was in the front seat and they did not see it or else it will be so much disaster. I was so very sad and furious but had to look at the bright side. We’re safe and sound. We reported it to the Police. It’s rampant to SF that kind of incident. Police said its maybe because of the out of town plate, they think that we are tourist that’s why they broke our car and get the luggage’s. The gadgets and electronics can be replaced. But seriously we had some little things that cant be replaced in there. We had our wedding album in the luggage. Some of my memorabilia’s from Philippines. I am so upset but had to move on. It’s not easy to replace all the 90 percent of my things that was gone. 


This is how America Welcomes me haha. Its like welcome to America, All are new. New Life, New Beginnings and New Things. 

So therefore to all of you who wants to visit San Francisco, be vigilant all the time. Also i heard that the car they broke the most are the rentals and out of town plates car. I know bad things like this happens anywhere in the world. Its not just San Francisco its all over the world. 

Anyways San Francisco is beautiful. We went to Alcatraz and cruising around the bay. Got up close to Golden Gate Bridge. I will blog it soon. Stay tuned. :) :)

One of my bucketlist??? hehehe to visit St. Pauls Cathedral and we finally did it a month ago. I was so excited to see it for real. It was so beautiful, everything in there was so beautiful for me. Camera is not allowed inside, so i put my camera inside my bag and to respect the place. There was an on-going mass during our visit. I really want to get my camera out and took photos but i just cant. Some people took photos secretly so i did it with my phone as well.
Well while were at the top of St. Paul, we are free to take photos. Hahaha the london skyline sooo wow . Of course i took a lot of photos lol Check it out below!
St Paul's Cathedral, London, is an Anglican cathedral, the seat of the Bishop of London and the mother church of the Diocese of London. It sits on Ludgate Hill at the highest point of the City of London and is a Grade I listed building. Its dedication to Paul the Apostle dates back to the original church on this site, founded in AD 604. The present cathedral, dating from the late 17th century, was designed in the English Baroque style by Sir Christopher Wren. Its construction, completed in Wren's lifetime, was part of a major rebuilding programme in the City after the Great Fire of London.
The cathedral is one of the most famous and most recognisable sights of London. Its dome, framed by the spires of Wren's City churches, has dominated the skyline for over 300 years. At 365 feet (111 m) high, it was the tallest building in London from 1710 to 1967. The dome is among the highest in the world. St Paul's is the second-largest church building in area in the United Kingdom after Liverpool Cathedral.
St Paul's Cathedral occupies a significant place in the national identity. It is the central subject of much promotional material, as well as of images of the dome surrounded by the smoke and fire of the Blitz. Services held at St Paul's have included the funerals of Admiral Nelson, the Duke of Wellington, Sir Winston Churchill and Baroness Thatcher; jubilee celebrations for Queen Victoria; peace services marking the end of the First and Second World Wars; the wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer; the launch of the Festival of Britain; and the thanksgiving services for the Silver, Golden and Diamond Jubilees and the 80th and 90th birthdays of Elizabeth II.
St Paul's Cathedral is a working church with hourly prayer and daily services. The tourist entry fee at the door is £18 for adults (March 2017, cheaper online), but no charge is made to worshippers. (Wikipedia)
