I'm a writer, a mythologist with a doctorate, and a librarian. I'm an independent traveler but love to get information from locals about their favorite places and things to do.
I have traveled extensively throughout the United States (44 states and counting). I've also been overseas a few times. Favorite U.S. cities include Boston (for its history and walkability); San Francisco (for its views, coffeehouses, and culture); New Orleans (for its food, elegant shops, music, and just about everything); and Los Angeles, for its sunny skies, sophisticated shopping, creative class, and laid-back attitude.
