David Kravetz: Kindred Quirky Traveler
I met David Kravetz several years ago on Twitter, and I immediately realized he is a kindred spirit. We both love exploring offbeat and overlooked places, and are especially fond of the quirky and humorous. We have even met in person!
David is a prolific blogger and photographer who has lived and worked all over the world, including China and Japan. He speaks Japanese fluently and has worked as a translator. There are so many things I could share with you about this talented fellow, but let’s dive in and hear all about his new book!

I read “Passing Gas: And Other Towns Along the American Highway” by Gary Gladstone several years ago, and loved it. I’ll have to check out David’s books too!
Haha! What a great book title. I’ll have to look for that one. You’ll love David’s stuff. He takes great pics, is very punny, and has a great eye for spotting quirky places. Thanks for dropping by, Bob!
