Is your Belle bag travelling? Email us at editor [at] belletrista [dot] com and tell us about it!

Did you guess where our Belle bag is? Joyce Nickel sends us these pictures from a recent trip to San Francisco, California, where our Belle Bag enjoys the salty air of the San Francisco bay with the famous Golden Gate Bridge in the background.

Thumbnails, Left to right:

1. "Nina and Charlotte are clowning at Alamo Square, with the famous "Painted Ladies" row houses in the background. Rumour has it that Alice Walker once lived in one of these homes."

2. "The downtown San Francisco skyline, with the famous landmark that we like to call the "Ring-toss for Aliens Building" (it's actually the Transamerica Pyramid)

3. "We enjoyed climbing up very steep Telegraph Hill, where we could see fabulous 360 degree views of the city. This shot is of the Golden Gate Bridge with the velvety hills of Marin County in the background."
