When I was a kid and I visited San Francisco, it was the crazy hills and the gorgeous deco bridge which made me want to live here. As an adult, I'd have to say it's that particular San Francisco flavor of bohemianism and intentional community which makes me glad I call this place home. The bridge and hills are just gravy now. Tasty, tasty gravy.
I also like to leave SF - I was camping up in the Black Rock desert over the July 4th weekend and had a blast. I also spent a month last year visiting Iceland and Norway. Puffin is rather fishy tasting but the Icelandic pickled herring on rye open-faced sandwiches are to die for. My favorite place to go is traveling.
I polled my friends for the first word to come to mind when they think of me and they came up with: generous, dashing, stylish, loyal, smart, and several choice profanities I won't replicate here. That last bit either means I have very honest friends or I have very good friends but either way, I win.
