Hello There!

Wow, what a fantastic time I am having. In the short week I have been here, I have done so much, saw so much, and learned so much. I have walked, bus-ed, ferry-ed, cable car-ed, and streetcar-ed across this easy-navigating city. The sights are incredible; but truly what makes this place fabulous is the nice people. I will surely miss this fun-loving city, the frigid wind and all. San Francisco is a diverse city, with a little something for everyone.

I tried to cram it all in since I don't know when I will be back. Using the checklist in the Bay City Guide, I completed almost all the major attractions, and added a few off the beaten path places of my own. I can't wait to blog and reminiscence once I get home. I have a lot to share.

Just some background on the trip. Luke and I arrived on Sunday (4/6) around noon time and will be flying out tomorrow (4/11). Luke is sent here by his company to attend the annual RSA Conference. I decided to tag along after much ponder and so glad I did. Although we had dinner every night together, for the most part, I was on my own (with a travel buddy I met!) while Luke worked. We are staying at the San Francisco Marriott near Market Street. The location can't be beat, it is close to all public transportation (which I relied heavily on). I purchased the 3-day Muni Passport for $18 and took every advantage of it. With the Muni Passport, a map, and a tour book, I explored San Francisco inside and out. Surly I missed some things, but what's more important is that I've discovered enough to know that I want to come back.

Much more to come. First gotta get home safely tomorrow and give Pargo a much-needed bath.

    I still haven't ridden one of those things. Maybe cuz I never had a little checklist to help me out. Yeah, that's it!
