Kie H. Chesley has been both traveling and writing for the last 25 years, but only recently thought to combine the two—leaving his third passion, cooking, on the back burner. He's worked at over 30 jobs and lived in over 30 different homes, in such places as: Santa Cruz, West Hollywood, Portland, Montgomery (Alabama), Lewistown (Montana), and Kaiserslautern (Germany). Having never learned anything in school as important as the linguistic and travel skills picked up in these locations, he continues his mission to go to all the places, see all the things, and talk to all the people.
