Thanks for reading my story and looking me up.&nbsp; I'm a freelance writer and live in San Diego, Ca.&nbsp;No matter where in the world I travel,&nbsp; I always appreciate coming home to the beautiful city where I live.&nbsp; After a 20-year career in advertising and marketing I decided to&nbsp;ditch my corporate job&nbsp;because I hated being stuck in an office when I knew&nbsp;there was so much to see and do in the world.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /> <br /> My husband&nbsp;and I love to travel and some of our favorite trips have been to&nbsp;France for biking tours.&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /> <br /> My essays, stories and photos about travel, food, organic gardening, environmental science and the arts have appeared in the <em>Christian Science Monitor, San Francisco Chronicle, Boston Herald, Philadelphia Inquirer, edible San Diego</em> and online at <em>Go World Travel, World News Network </em>and <em>Iconoclast.com</em>.&nbsp; Check out my website at <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.marthachristopherson.net">www.marthachristopherson.net</a>.&nbsp;
