San Fran, The Bay Area, Home of Pier 39 (AKA my dream tourist destination due to my unhealthy obsession with seals… don’t ask). Google reached out to me to see if I wanted to take part in a speaking opportunity for L’Oréal execs so they could learn more about YouTube and our personal brands. The best part? It would be in San Francisco. It’s been over 7 years since I’ve been in The Bay Area and I was SO excited to return. My last visit here was with my parental unit, whom I love to death, which consisted of seeing the usual touristy spots (don’t get me wrong – I had a blast), but I was excited to meet up with a few locals to check out their favourite hidden gems.
You guys are probably familiar with Weylie from the channel ilikeweylie (if not, this is next on your Internet-surfing to do list once you’re finished here), and having been Internet friends for over a year but living on different sides of the continent, we don’t chill much. UNTIL THE OTHER DAY! Her and her boyfriend Wah took me to some amazing places that I never would have stumbled upon on my own, or even with the help of Yelp. We started in Japantown for lunch, saw the Golden Gate Bridge, walked down Lombard Street and then hit up this amazing neighbourhood for liquid nitrogen icecream, macarons and shoe shopping. Oh, forgot to mention… Weylie and Wah have a shiba. Shibas are my favourite. I have no chill around shibas. All chill was lost. BEST DAY EVER.
So a huge thank you to Weylie and Wah for playing tour guide for me on Monday, I had such a great time seeing the city from your view and also snuggling your dog.
