Sometimes picking a birthday present can be complicated.
What do you give to your favorite “Auntie” who is turning 70? Someone who has everything she needs in life and collections of everything – whether she needs it or not.
I wanted to pick something memorable that wouldn’t just collect dust on a shelf.
I remembered her mentioning that she has always wanted to take a sea plane around San Francisco - a dream for over 30 years. Come to think of it, she mentioned it years back and I thought that someday I would surprise her. Turning 70 seemed like a wonderful milestone to me. So yesterday afternoon I surprised her and we flew all across San Francisco and had the best time!
So if you are ever at a loss for a present for someone, then my advice is this: try to think of something that would be really perfect for them and something they have always wanted to do.
If you are in San Francisco, I highly suggest Seaplane Tours. They took care of every detail and even arranged champagne for the flight.
The late afternoon flight was perfect. Picture perfect. Here are some of my favorites photos that I look (with my iphone!)...
