Hire Me to write about your destination and your tours. I’m available for freelance assignments, commissions, and partnerships. In addition to cultural travel, I specialize in golf travel worldwide, and California travel. (I am not paid to write the posts on this site; when I am a guest of a tour company or a destination, I will mention that.)
