Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, CA

I finally became a pure tourist in the last day of my California conference trip. Although having transferred flights at San Francisco for quite a few times, this is actually the first time I stepped out of the airport and paid a visit to the city. Golden Gate Bridge is for sure, one of the must-visit sites. There are two things that you can always be impressed by California, the nice weather, and the beautiful flowers. And luckily I got both when I visited Golden Gate Bridge!

Sunrise Park, Palm Springs, CA

Palm Springs is said to be “the best vacation destination” in California, but for me, the most impressive things about Palm Springs are the ever-lasting sunshine and the amazing landscape of this small town. Looking from the air, this city is really “growing” out of the desert: it is surrounded by rocky mountains and even just a few miles from the downtown, what you will see is simply desert. Yet there are still fancy things going on here: golf courses, ¬†swimming pool, luxury hotels…And by the way, Palm Springs is sunny more than 300 days a year!
