Place 75 – Day 1: Mountain View,CA 🇺🇸 – Computer History Museum & GooglePlex

Computer History Museum

We were going to take public transport down to Mountain View this morning, but that would take 2.5 hours, so we changed our mind and decided to take an Uber, which took about 1 hour.

We got to the Computer History Museum, expecting to spend an hour or so here, but we were wrong!

This museum was very large, with about 20 sections in it. This was actually a really interesting museum, if not a bit technical.

This museum was about the first 2000 years of computers and technology.

Lunch

We got very hungry after our few hours in the museum, so we went on the hunt for food.

We found a 7-Eleven and thought it would be cheap to get something from there.

Curtis got a sandwich and Kim got a wrap and we bought a drink each and some crisps and chocolate.

We sat and ate our food and then walked onward.

GooglePlex

We walked down the road before we hit a few Google buildings.

We didn’t book a tour with a tour group as it was over $500 each for it!

We did however walk around the Google campus, as you’re able to do there, seeing the Google bikes, Google employees everywhere and all the Google buildings!

There are over 60 buildings owned by Google in just this area.

Android Garden & Store

We walked a bit further down the road to the Android Garden and Merchandise Store.

The android garden is a staple thing you’re meant to go and take a photo of when you’re there, so we did just that.

We looked around the store and just had to buy something, so Curtis bought a Google t-shirt!

Uber Home

We left here and took an uber home. It wasn’t too far from rush hour, but it took about 1 hour to get back.

Once we got back, Curtis watched the remaining 2 periods of the Leafs game and then we headed out for dinner.

Dinner

We took a bus for 20 minutes down to a shopping mall we didn’t know existed where there was a lot of food options including a food court!

We got a bite to eat here at Panda Express, which is a fast food chinese place. We got Shanghai angus steak and orange chicken with fried rice. It was terrific and just $10.50.

Documentary

We got back and watched a few episodes of the Madeleine McCann documentary on Netflix before sleeping.

Tomorrow is our last day in San Francisco.


This Time Last Year!
