Expert In

Germany

History, geography, culture. Hanseatic trade routes, religion and hunting traditions.

Vancouver, Canada

History, culture, ins and outs, places to stay, places to go, places to eat, places to drink, places to see. Particularly near and dear: Victoria and Vancouver Island.

Seattle, United States

I've lived in Seattle off and on for over thirty years - and am an expert on it's history, culture, neighborhoods, academic scene and nightlife. Equally at home on I-5 corridor communities up and down the coast from Vancouver BC to San Fransisco.

    @mhoward Hello! Here in Toronto it’s still gloomy, but I’m not complaining because it finally stopped snowing and was actually still light outside at 7pm today. I’m a survivor of Canadian winter! Wooohoo!

    Thanks for the add :) I wish Modern Greek hadn’t give you such a hard time… ;)

    @mhoward Thanks for the add. I envy anyone with a talent for language. It took me two years of immersion in Mexico to be able to use basic Spanish and I’m having absolutely no luck with Portuguese. I’m assuming that you’re currently in Michigan and not South Lyon France. Have a great Thanksgiving.

A penchant for travel and languages lead me on for thirty years in a variety of careers - winning hearts and minds in and out of uniform - federal, military and freelance. Now exclusively freelance. I'm fluent in German and English - with survival skills in French, Haitian Creole, Russian, Standard Arabic, Swahili, Turkish and Samoan. Lately I've been knocking the rust off my old Public School Latin. Tried Chinese and Thai with absolutely no luck - and failed miserably with modern Greek.
