We are east coast transplants living here in San Francisco for the last 4 years. Gabriel is a teacher and Mariel is in graduate school. We tend to travel half- meticulously planned/half by-the-seat-of-the-pants. As guests, we're pretty low-key.
Mariel: Some of my favorite things to do on the road are eat fatty snacks in the park, pick berries on hikes, get on the wrong bus, etc. I like to wander and I usually drink tap water in places where I shouldn't.
