I am a young woman currently residing in San Francisco. I love this city, and I have a wonderful life here - a rewarding and interesting job, many good friends, a lovely apartment, beautiful views and special places. I am very lucky in that way. However, I have a passion for travel and seeing the world, and I try to leave my city and country as often as possible. There is nothing more life-affirming and exciting than discovering new places and learning more about how people live in other parts of the world. I have traveled to quite a few destinations (especially in Europe), but I know I have barely scratched the surface. It's always challenging to decide between returning to a place you already know and love, and going somewhere new. I am currently planning more new adventures - some with good friends, some with my boyfriend, and some by myself. The idea of coming to a new place and staying in an apartment instead of a hotel sounds amazing. Life is a precious gift, and I want to live mine to the fullest potential. I am really looking forward to this new experience!
