I Love San Francisco

If anyone ever makes the mistake of asking me what my favorite travel destinations are, they’re in for a looooong list. One thing is for sure, though – San Francisco is always on that list!

SF became one of my favorite cities in the world as soon as I first stepped foot in it. The city has a very specific atmosphere, relaxed and carefree. It’s easy to breathe in San Francisco.

With several distinct neighborhoods in a surprisingly compact area, you can easily collect unique experiences and adventures without even breaking a sweat. Have brunch in the hip Mission District and enjoy the California sun on the grassy slopes of Mission Dolores Park, get a sniff of counter-culture history in Haight-Ashbury, do some shopping in chic Pacific Heights or maybe head over to see the sealions at Pier 39.

You could also easily spend a day or two just enjoying the city’s beautiful beaches and admiring the views of the legendary Golden Gate Bridge, or maybe by exploring the vivid ethnic neighborhoods around town. It’s a weirdly wonderful feeling to find new worlds around each corner. That’s why I love San Francisco.

The Castro is quite possibly the gayest neighborhood in the world

In San Francisco, you’re always going up or down a hill…
