Even before I went to San Francisco, I knew I would love this city. People who spend some time in SF complain only about one thing—high costs of living. The rest is just perfect: the ocean, the cliffs, the parks on hills, the bay …
As for the weather in San Francisco, it tends to be unpredictable. Mist and strong winds are a rule rather than the exception here. But this isn’t a drawback—instead, it creates a specific charm of this city.
There were numerous places I loved in San Francisco. I especially liked those little parks situated on hills where I could sip my morning coffee without rush, admiring stunning city views. I also enjoyed a long walk from Battery Spencer, along the Golden Gate Bridge and Baker Beach, all the way to Lands End, and having dinner somewhere in Outer Richmond, without any tourists around.
To me, San Francisco, with its narrow, walkable streets, had a somewhat “European” vibe, and maybe this is why I felt like home there. Or perhaps I just love cities by the bay 😉 Nevertheless, SF, I’m coming back to explore more!
