"One of my all-time favourite cities" San Francisco by sunshinejo

Even before I arrived, I knew that San Francisco would be one of those places I would love instantly and eternally! Try as I might, I really struggle to pinpoint what it is exactly that I like about it here. Possibly the fact that, in my opinion, this is a truly beautiful city, and area. Or it could be that, in comparison to LA, there's a much more laid-back and relaxed atmosphere here, which is something that always appeals to me. Whatever it is, this is a place that is worth getting to know well, preferably gradually, over a long period of time! Fortunately for me, this was something that I was able to do, thanks to having a friend in San Jose who let me stay with him. Over the 4 weeks that I was in the Bay Area, I felt I really got to know the area pretty well. Being able to spend time with the locals made my stay even better, as I learnt things you could never pick up from a guide book and got a real insight into how they live there.
