I've lived in SF for over two years...and I LOVE it! So come visit :)
I've traveled many times to Europe, Canada, Mexico, once to Antarctica, and have South America & Asia as my next go-to continents. I've traveled by and hosted on (website hidden) and so have some good experience staying with locals and hosting out-of-town travelers. I think services like AirBnB are the best way to get to know a city and it's people.
Five things I can't live without: literature, wine, whiskey, films, family, friends ... MY BIKE!
Barcelona, Vancouver, Montreal, and Vienna are my favorite cities...after SF of course. I'm hooked on Game of Thrones (the books) and Ender's Game is one of my all-time favorite books. Homeland, True Blood, and HIMYM are my favorite current TV showes, but you can also probably find me watching Battlestar Galactica or Arrested Development.
I have two life mottos, one I stole from someone else and one that is my own:
You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want
