One Step At a Time

San Francisco homes

Presidio, the Palace of Fine Arts


While I am at home running errands and taking a class, some of my friends are on vacation! They must be having a great time. A former professor of mine once told my class that she liked to live vicariously. I think that is true for many. That's why I like reading blogs and oogling over travel photos.

A few months ago, I went to San Francisco with my mom and brother. We stayed at the Fisherman's Wharf and tried out various restaurants. Some of my favorites include: Good Mong Kok Bakery (delicious dim sum at inexpensive prices) and the Boudin Cafe (rave-worthy clam chowder in their sour dough bread). I am not particularly picky with food; I eat just about anything that's healthy and/or delicious. We were in the mood for some Chinese food, so we headed out to R & G Lounge. They did not disappoint; good food, fast service, and a warm ambience. I really liked their R&G Special Beef.

If you can't venture out for a vacation, no worries! A day trip to the beach or hiking a local trail will suffice. I read in an Elle magazine that it doesn't matter if you go or not - planning a trip will boost your happiness. How wonderful is that?
