The podcast continues to take on a life of its own with wonderful guests sharing their amazing travel-related stories and adventures. The biggest thrill for me is that each show holds the potential to not only entertain, but provide amazing personal narratives from the incredible lives of our guests.

My guest for episode 4 blew me away with his historical knowledge of San Francisco. Even better, he also shared his personal story of living in San Francisco for the past three decades and opens up about his love affair with the city and his Telegraph Hill /North Beach neighborhood.  Please give it a listen and feel free to leave a comment.    Cheers! - Keith B.


Episode 4 takes us on a virtual tour of San Francisco as seen through the eyes of a longtime resident and current "Bus Monkey" tour guide.

Nick Messinger has called San Francisco home for the past 30 years, and he had a successful career as a TV News Producer. After taking an early retirement from his job and then while facing critical life questions, Nick had an epiphany to become a tour guide on a double-decker tour bus. Little did he know how much his new career would impact his outlook on life.

Host Keith Breitbach gets the inside scoop on what compels someone out of retirement to become a tour guide with an insatiable appetite for San Francisco history and trivia. Messinger takes us from the 1848 Gold Rush to a discussion about current politics, the arrival of Tech workers and skyrocketing real estate prices.

Over the past 30 years, Nick Messinger's personal journey wound its way across the country to the Mission District then to The Haight and North Beach neighborhoods. His history is woven with that of the city, and in this podcast, Nick shares his passion and love for San Francisco.  It's a compelling and insightful adventure providing a fun perspective of the city and the people who call it home.

San Francisco is a beautiful city with a rich history and cultural heritage. Doing a research paper for my history class, I have learned some historical facts about San Francisco. The city, originally a Spanish and later Mexican mission and pueblo, was conquered by the United States following the discovery of gold in its hinterland. It was the gold rush that made San Francisco a cosmopolitan metropolis and although the great 1906 earthquake and fire caused a massive destruction in the city, it didn't stop its progress. Throughout the years, it thrived to be the center of wealth, military power, culture and technology.

San Francisco is one of the most visited places in the US. It has its own unique and distinct culture. There are lots of places to explore and people to meet. Having a tour guide like Nick Messinger who knows the ins and outs of the place will make your tour a very enjoyable and memorable one. With his passion and love for San Francisco, your stay will become a very insightful adventure.

San Francisco's golden gate bridge is the attraction I will never forget from my visit in the area. I had a look at it for a good 20 minutes, and I just kept wondering how many people crossed that bridge. That population could be easily represented by all countries in the world. More than just being an established presence literally "bridging" people from one point to another, it has a rich history that I hope dwellers, visitors and curious minds also think about.
