Bryson's Guidebook. In my spare time from research, I'm an avid traveler myself. I am a graduate of Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.; the traditional landscape and architecture inspired me to immerse myself in other unique, rich cultures. I love Europe and Japan! I am grateful to have spent time working in California and to now be located in this great city of New York for the past few years. It's my hope that my home be a sanctuary for the traveler that I have been in my day: the curious explorer, the young couple exploring the Big Apple for the first time, and the family looking to spend some relaxing yet exciting time together in NYC.
