Hello. I am an American currently living in San Francisco. I have lived in this beautiful city for almost eight years. I spent a year abroad in Amsterdam and traveled around the Mediterranean for the summer. I stayed in Airbnb's for most of my travels and I really enjoyed meeting hosts, staying in the comfort of a home, and learning more about the surrounding neighborhood.
When I travel I like to research about local restaurants and things to do but I like to play it by ear when I actually arrive. There's something about not having a schedule and getting caught in a conversation with a local shop owner about neighborhood treasures that turns travel into magic. But I need to have an outline of things to see otherwise I won't ever get to it.
Five things I can't live without: strong delicious coffee, tasty food, salt (my favorite food group), improv, and my friends.
