In and out of San Francisco USA in 5 days. 2015

Posted by

Thanks to REA i was invited on a study tour of The High tech Silicon valley game changing businesses in September 2015 such as Google, Airbnb, Sales Force & Uber plus a bit of fun along the way. There was about 22 Real estate Agents from across Australia invited to participate in a strategy Forum and whilst there  we enjoyed all the san Fran can offer in 5 days

The paired Ladies up on Alamo Square are always worth a visit as are the vistas all around the park.

There is nothing like the way they design and build on the steep blocks.

We took in a trip and tour of Alcatraz which was a real surprise for me as i had dismissed it all as tourist hype but really got into it.
