Please hold for San Francisco

Magnet #1291 - de Young Museum

Argle. San Francisco's calling me, too!

Here's yet another museum I haven't been to, the de Young Museum! A friend of mine brought this one back for me from her trip out there.

As I look around my apartment, I have to admit that I'm lucky to have been able to travel as much as I have - with repeat visits to multiple fun destinations. But I don't think I'll ever sit back and say, yeah, I'm done with travelling. There's just too much out there to see and do, than just sit at home in NYC.

Following on yesterday's post, I really did start my spreadsheet of future vacation destinations and activities. No real itineraries just yet obviously, but so far Russia and LA have the longest list of things for me to do.

And, because I rediscovered this magnet in my collection, I had to add San Francisco to my list, and specifically this museum. You can't tell in this from this shot (indeed, wait til I use one of the several other magnets in the set), but it's the coolest building ever!

It's designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the same folks that did the Bejing Olympic Stadium, and who re-purposed the Tate Modern in London, and the Allianz stadium in Munich.

Shoot. Germany. I have to go add that to my list!
Pin It!

Yes! Yes! Come to San Francisco! We'll go to the De Young with you, and take you to dinner afterward! :)

Hahaha, thanks! Yeah, more and more I'm realizing CA and I are not through yet. Which is funny, because my parents are about to spend 2 weeks out there with family. I should have taken time to go with them!
