There’s been times in my life where I’ve felt completely disconnected from my soul and the only remedy is to travel in hopes of re-connecting with it again. Call it soul-searching if you must…but last October, I gathered my family along for a journey that fell nothing short of that.
First stop: beautiful, cultural, lively San Francisco.
My stay in San Francisco was – well, a plethora of EVERYTHING. I don’t think I’ve ever seen or done so much within 72 hours and I loved every minute of it. The city was a cultural mecca and I was in awe as I absorbed every street, every attraction, every district – all so unique and fascinating in it’s own right. It’s quite amusing that so much “city” can fit into this little bay area. From attractions such as Chinatown, Fisherman’s Wharf, Golden Gate Bridge, and Union Square to streets and districts such as Castro, Haight + Ashbury, Lombard and Presidio – I did it all and so much more!!
Perhaps next time I will stop and take in San Francisco at a slower pace. But for now – I can honestly say I left feeling completely enriched and inspired. Exactly what I needed.
