In September 2016 my husband and I packed up our lives and moved to San Francisco from London. We are enjoying getting to know this amazing city. As well as blogging about SF and life as an expat, I share travel guides and updates with my friends, family and anyone else who wants to read my musings!

My passions include travel, food & drink, animals & wildlife, reading, writing and the outdoors.

The name ‘One Bay or Another’ came to me because I love living by the sea. The bays I’ve lived in or near include Morecambe Bay (Lancaster, UK), Cullen Bay (Darwin, Australia), Port Phillip (Melbourne, Australia) and now San Francisco Bay.

I was apprehensive about starting this blog. Would anybody read it? Is it self-indulgent? Am I showing off? Now, having been writing about travel and my new life in San Francisco for a year, I wish I’d started blogging years ago!

Documenting my travels, sharing tips and writing about my experiences helps me to appreciate them and reflect on living life as an expat in a new country. I just wish I’d been blogging for the last 15 years!
