Every time I think about San Francisco, my heart skips a beat. It comes in a narrow second behind Copenhagen on my list of cities I love. Today I’ve teamed up with my friend Marie to share with you my San Francisco City Guide. This is not meant to be an end-all city guide, but more so to showcase a few places I like in the city I love.
