I was looking through my old postcards and found this San Francisco postcard that I mailed myself in 2001. We really did a whirlwind tour of San Francisco back then – we hit all the sites! I feel really lucky that I’ve been able to travel lots and I think as a result of visiting many places, I’ve learnt to slow down and focus on the here and now, to get a feel for the local pulse. I no longer need to see all the highlights to feel satisfied. There isn’t a right or wrong way to travel (as long as you’re respectful) but for now, taking it more slowly and soaking up the local flavours and culture is the way for me. Happy Monday!

You can check out my trip to San Francisco from this past summer, 13 years after I first visited San Francisco here. While we’re on the topic of California, I also went to San Diego and Palm Springs this summer.
