I live in the heart of San Francisco. I've been in the Bay Area for 6 years. My boyfriend of nine years, Dave, and I love to travel. We have road-tripped through 44 states and 2 provinces of Canada, surfing couches the whole way. We spent a month traveling through Europe- London, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, staying in hotels, hostels and vacation rentals.
We like to stay with locals since they know all the ins and outs and hidden gems off the beaten path.
Things I like to do in a new city:
Be out and about- Explore via public transit, walking or hiking
Eat! Go to popular bars, cafes, restaurants
Check out well-known art & architecture
Just hang and do as the locals do
