Roadtrip USA: UC Berkeley and Sausalito

... college life like in the movies

We crossed the Bay Bridge to UC Berkeley. Parking was convenient and free in a garage one block away from the campus. Check out Parkopedia for worldwide parking advice. Saved us hundreds of bucks already.

As it’s the beginning of the fall semester, there were dozens of booths for clubs and sorieties looking for new members. There were some really nerdy clubs, which barely had visitors at their booth and really popular ones. They could sense that we were no students, as we were at least 10 years to old. We were only approached by some desperate clubs… The campus is nice with monumental buildings carrying a lot of history.

After visiting UC Berkeley we drove over to Sausalito, a former Fishermen’s village in the Bay Area. Lovely town with a lot of small ocean front restaurants.

We drove back over the Golden Gate Bridge but not without taking some pictures from the north side beforehand.

For dinner we met a colleague of my wife in the financial district. We had dinner at Roy’s and we were just in time for Aloha Hour. Make it two Mojitos please…
