I live in Michigan and have stayed with Air B and B hosts in America and abroad. I'm a writer. I've written a number of guidebooks and many articles about travel for newspapers at destinations around the world. I have also written books on medicine, education, Eastern Europe and the filmmaker Michael Moore. I recently produced Waterwalk, a feature film. based on the story of two French explorers, Jacques Marquette and Louis Joliet who discovered the Mississippi River.
I like bookstores, independent films, theater especially fringe shows, all kinds of music and small restaurants where the cooking is done by the owner. I travel a good deal and prefer to stay in private apartments and homes or bed and breakfasts. I am out much of the day and am very careful and quiet. I like to make new friends. My wife is a librarian and we love books. I believe there is no such thing as a bad trip as long as you keep your sense of humor.
