Hi there! I'm Joan, your friendly local host here in San Francisco. I absolutely adore this vibrant city – the energy, the buzz, the colors – it's simply electrifying! You'll often find me exploring Marina, North Beach, Chinatown, Mission, Haight Ashbury, and of course, soaking up the beauty of Golden Gate Park. I'm a connoisseur of eateries, a dedicated people-watcher in cozy cafes, and a treasure hunter in old bookstores. Live music? Count me in! I'm your go-to gal for all things San Francisco – whether it's uncovering hidden nature spots for a hike, delving into the city's rich cultural and musical history, or simply savoring the coffee and cafe culture. So, if you're ready for an adventure filled with laughter, exploration, and a few surprises along the way, let's hit the streets of San Francisco together!
