I love living in the Bay Area. A friend of mine was recently visiting after having moved away some 5 years ago and we were reflecting on what a different type of place the bay area is and how much she misses the 'feel' of the Bay.
Which is why I'm still here.
Don't get me wrong, I love traveling, and there have been places I've gone to that have tempted me to stay - but I always come back :)
It's not a perfect place, but it's our home
