Hello again, and greetings from the great state of Michigan! As you may have seen from my social media or in my blogs about Chicago and West Michigan, I’m in the States for multiple reasons, one of which is a Midwest book tour. I’m incredibly honored to share the inspirational stories from my book, Flavors of Life. I was invited to speak at Michigan State University (MSU), and boy, was it great to be back! I led a discussion at a student luncheon and gave a lecture to a group of Journalism history students. In Ann Arbor, Michigan, home to University of Michigan (U of M), I held a discussion and signing at Nicola’s Books. Read more about my time in these two beautiful university towns!
Savannah and I initially met through Twitter, but it turns out we live only an hour apart, her in Alkmaar and myself in Amsterdam. Over the past two years or so, I’ve gotten to know her and her family, hearing the stories and looking at the pictures. Their travels are truly an inspiration and every time I visit, I want to immediately hit the road. While many of you may know her already, perhaps as the co-founder of #TRLT or social media rock star, a world traveler or author, I wanted to take the time to share a bit more of Savannah’s tale.
