A Bit of Background
I live with my partner Patrick in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, which is a suburb located just west of Minneapolis. Minneapolis is a very cosmopolitan city that defies the mid-west sterotype of nothing but farmers and fields of corn. The arts are extremely well represented here. With the exception of New York, there are arguably more theater companies in the twin cities area (twin - Minneapolis and St. Paul are seperated by the river Mississippi) than you would find in any other major city in the U.S. Minneapolis is home to the famed Guthrie & Theater de le Jeune Lune theaters, to name a few. Incidently, both theaters mentioned have been past "Tony Award" recipients. Many tourists visit Minneapolis to shop at the Mall of America, located in Bloomington, a suburb just south of the city. MOA is accessible by our new rail system (LRT) from many points in the city, as well as the Humphrey & Lindberg airport terminals.
We enjoy many of the finer things in life including, but not limited to, theater, music, dining and of course TRAVEL. Patrick and I have been fortunate over the years to have had some very interesting and fullfilling (mostly) adventures. Over the course of time, I intend to share some of past and furture journeys with you and to offer, hopefully, some meaningful advice to others pointed in the same direction.
