Hi I'm south of San Francisco now and want to spend a week or two in nature, traveling, meeting some new people and places and also find some time to be alone.

Can anyone suggest beautiful places to visit?

Could I couch surf with you for a day or two?

Would be happy to connect with communities and do some work exchange for a couple of days too.

Also want to find a private little cabin or something to do a private retreat for a few days or a week. Need very simple accommodation but something alone. Can pay for this or do exchange for most any kind of work or for movement and bodytherapy treatments I do. you can check that out on my site. http://www.ramikouhana.com/

Hi Rami

Try Marin County (near San Fran) and also anywhere along the 101 driving down the coast... Carmel, Monterrey, Santa Barbara, Solvang. In southern california, try visiting Laguna Beach and Newport Beach and even San Diego is beautiful.

Sorry I can't put you up as my other half only agrees for me to host females (it says in my profile).

Good luck to you

Hi Victoria,

Thanks, driving the 101 is very beautiful I heard but never did it. Probably I'll do that this week.

thanks a lot :)

Hey Rami,
Marin is a great escape right in the Bay Area’s back yard. And a good place to start if you wanted to head up the coast. There are many places to stay in the area.
For staying in the area :
Pantoll Campgrounds (a great base camp for exploring Mt. Tam)
Steep Ravine environmental Camp
The cabins there are awesome but difficult to reserve if you want to stay soon.
Samuel P. Taylor State Park
Dillon Beach has a site
In east marin there is a site at China Camp State Park (but I recommend staying in the western part of the county for a vacation)
Primitive hike-in camps:
Point Reyes: Coast Camp, Glen Camp, Sky camp, and Wildcat Camp

Golden Gate National Rec. Area: Bicentennial Camp, Haypress camp, Kirby Cove camp
Hostels: marin headlands hostel
Point Reyes Hostel
Rooms: West Point Inn is a unique beautiful spot
(There are many others to stay)
Also check out green gulch farm its retreat center for SF zen center or Spirit Rock meditation center. They might be able to hook you up.
I have wednesday afternoons and thursdays off If you wanted to explore with some one else. I am always down for some backroad exploring
