This morning we had to get up really early to get our flight from LA to San Francisco. We flew SouthWest for all our flights on Contiki and they were pretty good – it was a bit of a strange system, no assigned seating, so you just sat wherever you could on the plane. And you could also have two checked bags, which some people took advantage of later on in the tour.
As per usual, our first day in San Francisco was basically made up of a city tour. We drove across the Bay Bridge and stopped off at Pier 39.
