Greetings from San Francisco!

This is my first real vacation since I started college and my first solo travel vacation. My trip to the Philippines sparked the wanderlust in me and San Francisco is further cultivating that love.

I’ll be here for about a week and then I’m off to San Jose to check out another part of the Bay. For the next week or so, stay tuned for blog posts about my Bay Area adventures! And if you want to see more timely updates, follow my hashtag #AMinSF2015 on Twitter and Instagram or add me on Snapchat (ladlada).
