Urban Hiking in San Diego

059_M08Red2SWYou might have guessed by now that San Diego is my home town, and I consider myself a minor tour guide of my fair city. In fact, I often give talks on and off ships about navigating the city and getting the most out of your visit.

One talk I give is Urban Hiking in San Diego and it is not about boots and backpacks, and climbing mountains in the city. Urban hiking is all about getting around quickly and cheaply, and enjoying all the sights of San Diego.

This is the first round of postings of the Urban Hiking talk that I do aboard ship, with a running commentary to make sense of it all… so enjoy my home town:
