A European in San Francisco

4 years ago

From Madrid to Munich and now to San Francisco: this is me LolaMy name is Elena, this is %u201CLola%u201D (my bike) and this is my Blog: a European in San Francisco. A blog about my personal experience: living, working and discovering San Francisco from a European%u2019s perspective: My perspective. About me in short: born in Madrid, became an expat for the first time with 23 when my first job took me to Belgium. Ten years and a few countries later, I moved to Munich following my German husband. In 2011 I started blogging about the life of an expat amongst Germans. It turned out that people liked my little blog and thanks to them, it became one of the leading sites for the expat community in Munich. Go check it out if you are curious: My Adventures in Munich. Me Now that I am moving again %u201CA European in San Francisco%u201D is my new blog which I write with the intention: of discovering this exciting city and finding answers to practical questions that I have as an expat living in northern California. You need to know that I have never been to San Francisco. I have traveled intensively all my life but mostly within Europe and lately also to Australia. However I have never been to San Francisco. My only preconceived idea of the city is a mixed between the Hitchcock%u2019s thriller: Vertigo and the 90%u2032s TV serie: Charmed. The rest I will have to discover on my own and I think it%u2019s going to be fun.
