Chick Chat Video: Life in San Francisco

Today, the Three Bay B Chicks and My Home Wellingtontown, Wandering the World, (me) Under the Sheets…Shhh and The Misplaced Americans will all be talking about how life is interesting and unique in our part of the world. This segment will feature bloggers from San Francisco, California, Sue is from New Zealand, TypO Egypt, and Rebecca's family lives in Brazil.

I can't wait to see their videos....let's go together to check them out!

A huge thank you to Three Bay B Chicks for asking me to participate in Chick Chat. I wanted to show you my love for the city of San Francisco and some of it's beauty. Comment and let me know your thoughts about my first video for Chick Chat. 

It was a perfect, windy, San Francisco day for a beret and I borrowed my friend's scooter for you.

Curious about seeing the person behind Under the Sheets-Shhh? You're just a click away.

OMG! I loved it. I've had the pleasure of visiting San Francisco with my family ...about 5 years ago. Would love to return....

Great food-
I got my first and only tattoo there...
Rode the cable car (thought my youngest most adventurous child would fall off, (she insisted on riding on the outside).... It was a blast, but we soooo didn't get to spend enough time there! Loved your vlog!!! Thanks so much for that.

Amazing, amazing vlog, my friend. You really did us locals proud. I have to tell you that when Kacey, Thuy, and I tried to talk about life in our own backyard we were in no way as entertaining or creative as you! I am so glad that you were able to be apart of this topic. Your love for SF is true. :)

Thanks again!!

Awesome video!!! Loved, loved, loved it. :) Now I want to go to San Fran so badly. I've been a couple times before, but there is still so much more to explore--- like checking out ladies in spandex, wondering if they're going to bust out into a tai chi workout. ;-)

I love San Fran. It reminds me of a small, community-style New York.

Great vid! You should host a travel show!

laura, love your video. nicely done! I would so not be able to do that. I grew up in san jose and spent MUCHO rec time in SF. Now i only live in Sacramento area, but oh so far from the City. We really hardly ever get there. Mostly when visitors come. Anyway, just loved your video and positive outlook on that crazy, but great, City By the Bay!

You're adorable, you know that right! and you used the word microcosm which I'm going to start using in my daily vocab. Great noun.
