Ever been in jail? Yes, I have actually, but not in the way you might think. I was lucky enough to be visiting the bay of San Francisco earlier this year and just couldn’t pass on the opportunity to visit one of the most well known prisons in the world, Alcatraz!

After a short ferry journey across “shark infested” waters, I found myself phone in hand clicking away at this amazingly interesting place. We were seeing it almost as it was when it was a working facility and I loved every minute detail. From the aged hand painted signage to the rusty metals of kitchen paraphernalia. Walking in the same steps of some of America’s most notorious criminals was exceptionally eerie. Whilst studying the wear and tear on things such as original radiators and metal cell bars you had to stop and consider the stories that those walls could tell. What an experience!

A big tick off my bucket list for sure.
