Yesterday, Miguel and I had a mini adventure in San Francisco! 🙂 Let me give you a little bit of a background story. I met Miguel back in college in 2013, we were both in the class “Introduction to Earth Science”. Every day the professor would ask if anyone had questions or comments and one guy would always raise his hand. He would go on and on about science and just keep talking about every little fact he knew, that was Miguel. Back then, I hated science and thought it was absolutely boring, once I started dating my boyfriend, who is getting a B.S. in Biochemical Engineering, science seemed more interesting. Now, I love it when he starts telling me about what he is learning in class or anything he has been researching. Being that he loves science, I wanted to surprise him with a gift of something he would love. Miguel had never been to the California Academy of Sciences and the last time I had gone was when I was very young and didn’t remember it. Therefore, I surprised him by telling him that were gonna go there and planned an entire day just for our trip. We wanted to have an adventure, so we decided to take the Caltrain to SF instead of driving. The train ride was about two and a half hours but was definitely worth it and very fun. Once in SF, we took an Uber to the California Academy of Sciences. Miguel was beyond excited to visit the Academy of Sciences, he was like a kid in a candy store. Although I am not a huge fan of science, as mentioned before, I really wanted to spend time with my boyfriend in a place that he would enjoy, and boy did he enjoy it! He had a smile from ear to ear and wanted to go everywhere. I don’t remember how long we were there for, but we definitely saw EVERYTHING! Miguel and I saw all the exhibits and we even went inside the Osher Rainforest. That place is beautiful, there are four levels filled with birds, reptiles, fish, and butterflies. A moth actually landed on Miguel’s leg and he started saying, “I have been chosen”, it was very cute. Afterwards, we went to the Planetarium and saw “Habitat Earth“, it was amazing! The show was free with admission and was about 30 minutes long , we learned how plants and animals affect our earth. Lastly, we went to the mesmerizing Steinhart Aquarium and saw lots of sea creatures. Then we took an Uber back to Caltrain Station and went back to San Jose. Overall, our adventure was beautiful and we had a wonderful time! I will never forget this trip with Miguel! 🙂
