My favorite things about my cities

I have lived in Southern California since 1983. I love the beaches. I love the micro-breweries that have really started to take hold in the Southern California region over the last fifteen years or so. I'm a chef who worked in Kyoto, Japan in the Gion district back in 1988, and although I am no longer a professional chef, I am still a foodie, so I know about a lot of good eateries and places to get a quiet or a noisy beverage.

I'm in my mid-fifties, so I would probably be a better fit for travelers who are seeking advice on places where people in their forties, fifties, and sixties would like to see the sights, get some golf in, where to get a good, affordable meal and a refreshing microbrew or other adult beverage.

I speak some Spanish and I am semi-fluent in Japanese. Also, I have driven all over the Southern California area covering all of Los Angeles County, Orange County and even much of San Diego and the surrounding area, as well as having made many trips up to Santa Barbara (one of my wife's and my favorite little coastal towns).

Please feel free to contact me anytime.
