Leaving the rat race, as quickly as possible…..

August 27, 2008

The surest start to a relaxing break is making the transition from urban to rural as quickly as possible.

My favourite cities tend to be bordered by water. Think San Francisco or Seattle, rather than Paris or Berlin.

There can be no way more majestic to leave a city than to walk, ride or drive across the Golden Gate bridge.

Once across there is a resort with the most fantastic vista. No, not Sausalito. About a mile before, there is the newly opened Cavallo Point (www.cavallopoint.com), a lodge that has all you need to relax. Being located in Marin County means all you need for an active or relaxing break are to hand.

I haven’t stayed there myself, but fully intend to, next time I’m in SF, if only to check out the wildly varying reviews on www.tripadvisor.com.
