I am a published author of two books: Cirkus and Out of Harmony. I work as a professional writer, editor, and publishing consultant. My partner and I live in Minneapolis with a small dog and two cats (but they don't travel with us). My partner is from Spain so I get to travel there often, but we stop at other places in Europe to see the sites. My latest favorite movie is "Midnight in Paris"... writers in 1920s Paris...a car that picks you up and delivers you to Gertrude Stein? What's not to love?!?
When we visit new places, we like to stay in "neighborhoods" instead of touristy areas. We like to get a sense of the local culture and people and don't mind a bit of a walk or taking public transportation to get to the touristy areas. We're quiet people. No kids. Pets stay home.
