I spent a lot of 2014 traveling. Hong Kong, Macau, China, Japan, Germany, France. After spending time abroad, I have to say no place is as nice as the San Francisco Bay Area. Try getting decent Thai food in Paris, craft beer in China, or Tequila in Germany. Those places have fantastic specialties but no diversity. We're pretty fortunate to live where we do.
Some random thoughts:
-Yosemite is beautiful but it’s like saying fisherman’s wharf is the best part of SF. The true gems take a little effort to find.
-Bars in SJ should stay open till 4am like places in SF, we’re cool down here too!
-Why doesn't the Los Gatos creek trail connect to the Guadalupe River Trail?
-Burning Man is amazing!
-If your motorcycle sets off car alarms you probably have deep rooted attention and self confidence issues.
