Where to live?

San Francisco is a great place to live for younger people between 21-30. You just need to step out the door and you find life. It’s it really interesting how different Subcultures can develop in a city like this. For example you have Chinatown, Japan town, the Mission district with a Mexican touch and a lot others. That is what makes San Francisco really interesting to live in. Long story short, it is a melting pot with many cool and funny people and all of them have their own exciting stories to tell.

Ways to save money?

It is California if you want to save money you are probably in the wrong place. Life in San Francisco and the bay area is really expensive so you must be sure to have some funds on the side. One advise I can give, prepare your own food for the most of the time, that saves you a lil bit.
