Meet the Author

Michaela Riva Gaaserud is a native Virginian and longtime resident of the Washington DC area. Some of her earliest memories are of playing travel guide to visiting relatives as they went to the museums and monuments in Washington DC. Inspired by the enthusiasm she witnessed from first-timers to the city, Michaela began looking for hidden secrets to share with her audience. A particularly inspiring school field trip to the underground depths of the Lincoln Memorial sealed her love for discovering and sharing the marvels of her own backyard.

Michaela has published travel guides on various aspects of the Washington DC region, and her articles have appeared in newspapers, magazines, and international publications such as Canoe & Kayak Magazine and Paddler Magazine. Other publications include Lake Placid: With the Olympic Village, Lake George and New York’s Adirondacks; From Fairbanks to Boston: 50 Great U.S. Marathons; From Kona to Lake Placid: 50 Great U.S. Triathlons; and Sea Kayaking the Baltimore/Washington, D.C. Area. After the publication of this last book, she became a sought-after speaker and was featured in a kayaking documentary. She is also a founding partner at Rainmaker Publishing and an executive producer at Eddyline Media.

I must preface this book review of Moon Spotlight Coastal Virginia (Including Colonial Williamsburg) by Michaela Rivera Gaaserud via mentioning that my interest in looking into living in various places across the U.S. is independent from the fact that both my husband and I have mutually agreed on following our shared intent to settle/reside in the Washington D.C. area together by the time we are both in our 60’s (preferably traditional employment as my first choice until at least my mid 50’s, and self-employment after age 58 or later if spiritually up to me). I say spiritually up to me because I’m humbly aware that many men and women are sometimes forced to fend for themselves via self-employment (for a myriad of reasons) due to the competitive employment market even for minimum wage/private sector jobs(such as the case in the Washington D.C. area). We (my husband and I) both actually enjoy living in the Washington D.C. area and a long distance marriage would only be our last resort (due to economic necessity). I prefer to avoid publicly sharing our various reasons why, but I obviously intend to keep the longevity of my marriage in mind when weighing a relocation and/or career decision and must avoid saying anything further out of consideration for my husband, mother-in-law, allowing ample time to notify my employer, any concerned friends, any concerned family members etc. Information on Williamsburg and The Historic Triangle is found on pages 26-27 and includes information on the Yorktown National Battlefield Visitor Center. House, condo rentals, and restaurant information on Virginia Beach are details of note that encompass pages 49-57. Chrysler Hall, The Virginia Zoo, Naval Station Norfolk, The Hampton Roads Naval Museum, Nauticus National Maritime Center, Battleship Wisconsin (all between pages 44-45), and the Norfolk International Airport (page 57)are among some of the multiple attractions mentioned within the Moon Spotlight Coastal Guide Virginia book (including Colonial Williamsburg) by Michaela Rivera Gaaserud.
