Friday morning at 10am I landed in San Francisco.
I was there to work at the Gluten-Free Expo but had a day to explore before work began.
After dropping my bags off at the hotel, I immediately took the BART (San Francisco’s subway…) into the city.
I had spent the better part of the afternoon on Thursday, making lists and mapping out my course of action. It has been years since I’ve traveled in a new city by myself and I was excited and prepared to take full advantage.
San Francisco is full of things to do, so, as to not overwhelm myself, I decided to stick to one area and explore it well. This trip: Mission District and a bit of Hayes Valley. I had a list of restaurants, stores, coffee shops, and a bar or two and my course of action all written out in a notebook and with that, I set off.
