After my first trip around the world, I realized that I San Francisco is a great place to live. It's also a great starting point for traveling anywhere. This city is multicultural and I've always found someone to talk to from whatever country I even dream about visiting.
I've lived in San Francisco for 17 years, have led tour groups, and taught English here. I love and appreciate tourists and really enjoy sharing my insight and familiarity with this city.
When it comes to travel, I like to mix things up a little. Spas, hiking, diving, snowboarding, museums, temples, restaurants, markets, etc... and I love meeting people and trying new foods.
One thing I don't like: resorts. Wow. That's a really great way to avoid the local culture and foods. Although... it is enlightening to see the horrible food that people think is "American" -- stuff I would never touch.
Thank goodness I married a man who is the perfect complement to me in this regard. Together, we have adventured around the world for the past 11 years. Yay for me!
