Six years ago, my mom, sister and I had a “dream”. We wanted to save time for just the three of us at least once a year to do something fun. We decided to stay local to keep costs down and just explore the Bay Area.
This year we were back in San Francisco.
My sister found a fun way to explore an area in SF that we’ve never discovered. We went on a walking food tour called Gourmet Walks.Â They have a new tour, Gourmet on Hayes, that takes you on a 3 hour walk in Hayes Valley that stops at 7 gourmet restaurants, getting tasting samples at each place. All the restaurants were amazing.
We can’t wait to go back.
Besides the 7 stops, other restaurants were pointed out that looked heavenly that we can’t wait to try! Such variety too. The parking was so good that I almost want to keep this area a secret! Very charming and trendy area of SF.
I would recommend the food tour for an easy stress-free way to explore it and at the same time gaining information about the area.
After stuffing ourselves with all the gourmet food, we decided at the last minute to walk across the Golden Gate Bridge. I’ve been wanting to do this with the 8 Women Dream gals so hopefully we’ll get it together and do it soon. (Come on girls!)
It was a beautiful day, windy but not bone chilling. It took an hour and a half and my feet were burning but we made it!
(I didn’t have the greatest shoes on)
So dreams can turn into wonderful traditions. And traditions can help with your dreams. I got my walking exercise. I got to travel. Even though it wasn’t far away, I was motivated to getting some research in to Japan.
And researching Japan made me try harder in my quest for Graphic Design jobs.
So keep dreaming.
Till next time,

She lost 20 pounds and overcame her intense dislike (do we say fear?) of flying to accomplish that dream. She rotated off the blog in February 2010, but still hangs out with 8 Women Dream.Â You can find her in the comments section)
