What to do on a Quick Day Trip to Berkeley

As I wrote in our guide to San Francisco, I went to undergrad in the Bay Area, so we couldn’t take a trip to San Francisco without visiting my alma mater-UC Berkeley.  After nearly ten years of talking about Berkeley to Albert, I finally got the chance to show him the campus and some, unfortunately not all, of my favorite parts of the city.

Our First Airbnb Experience

 Surprisingly, Carrie and I only recently stayed in our first Airbnb. Our first stay happened to be in the home of Airbnb, San Francisco. On a recent work/leisure trip to San Francisco I had the chance to experience both accommodation options in the city-a hotel in Union Square, which I won’t name and an Airbnb in the Mission, which I will happily promote.
