Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: Stay long enough to do as many activities as you can. Good city, not enough time. But hold on to your valuables.

Liked: San Francisco had all that you would want in a city, culture, art, good food and diversity.

Disliked: I did not like the amount of homeless and also how they would approach you. Very intimidating.

Travel Type:
With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Business / conference Partying / nightlife Relaxation / spa Romantic getaway Visiting friends or family Work / volunteering

Customer Travel Tip: Mind your own business, but I guess when entertainment and social notoriety makes a mockery of anything you do toward contributing, than on most levels it makes it even harder to believe, attempting to enjoy the most pleasant things become difficult. Honestly it's been exactly that on both spheres of trying to survive the equality barrier of being the all American guy. Consciously, it made my trip an awful experience. If I could have my way. Amanda at the Andrea gallery needs to be fired.

Liked: The beautiful scenery

Disliked: This one particular gallery receptionist. I didn't like her racist remarks toward discrimination against me for some reason.She basically didn't want me in the gallery as, if I wasn't equal to her noterity. I thought that after being invited month in and month to events by the galleries owners, the other day like no other. She basically insulted my intelligence and caused a scene given her prowess and my vulnerable identity of being a highly successful educated student. Personally, I thought by way of friends and colleagues my best interest was to try and aborsb as much of the gallery as I could.
