Bachelor, never married. I'm in the professional audio business, and between that and freelance writing for magazines I have traveled a lot, and still have many more places to visit and cultures to experience.
My Favorite Places:
Finding myself illegally in North Korea twice in a 24 hour period was quite exhilarating (I pictured myself on the cover of Newsweek--"American caught in North Korea", and I came out of it with unstained pants to boot! A little town I found in Portugal that was a throwback to the dark ages. The roofs of the houses were made of giant slabs of slate, the streets were full of hay, people had their horses tied to the front door latch, etc. If you remember the scene from Monty Python's Holy Grail where the guy is driving the cart through town and saying "Throw out your dead", that is exactly the way this place looked. Somewhere around the Mid 1400's, maybe before then. Another great throwback place is the town of Monsanto, also in Portugal. It is perched on top of a solitary hill with the remains of an old castle above it. Of course, Machu Picchu, Burning Man, the Roger Waters' "The Wall" gig in Berlin in 1990, Downtown Tokyo at 5 pm on any weekday, and Dracula's (Count Vlad Tepes) tomb beneath the altar in a church on an island in Transylvania.
