I’ve always felt a connection to San Francisco. Something about the way others talk about it had me assured that I would like it and that I could see myself living there. Having visited the city for the first time recently, I can say trust your gut and follow your instinct. It is a fantastic city – there’s a sense of familiarity with the city that I cannot seem to place. It was very laid back, quite diverse, and offered small town neighborhood vibes in a large, cosmopolitan city.
We were only in San Francisco for 3 nights – the first of which we spent trying to find parking (!) followed by lying on the sofa of our AirBnB de-stressing from the parking fiasco. Over the course of the next couple of days we spent some time strolling around the various neighborhoods and saw your typical SF sights – Fisherman’s Wharf, Lombard Street, Castro, Painted Ladies, Street Cars, and of course, Golden Gate Bridge. We also treated ourselves to a private driver and took a rainy day trip to sip some vino in Napa Valley.
