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.

Moon Virginia Including Washington D.C. by Michaela Riva Gaaserud caught my attention due to the shared agreement between my husband and I to eventually permanently settle in Virginia regardless of whether we are employed in the private sector or the government sector. However, I’m going to avoid saying more about the timeline when this would happen out of consideration for first finalizing my plans with the people in my life (such as my husband, mother-in-law other concerned people in my life etc and practical considerations (giving at least 2-3 weeks notice to employers, time needed to plan the relocation ect). I like this book because it features various parts of Virginia such as the cities in northern Virginia; Arlington, Old Town Alexandria and the nearby areas, Fairfax county, Loudon county etc. Then there are other areas covered such as Williamsburg, Hampton Roads, Newport News, Virginia Beach etc. The Alexandria Film Festival(page 102), The Lighted Boat Parade (Page 181), and The Blue Ridge Parkway (page 294) are some of the multiple features discussed in Moon Virginia Including Washington D.C.
