Name: Mickey Goodman

Backyard: Atlanta, Ga., and environs. Epicenter of the South. Home of the world’s busiest airport (both a plus and a minus), the world’s largest aquarium, Martin Luther King, Margaret Mitchell, the 1996 Olympics and the occasionally World Series-winning Atlanta Braves.

Passions: My kids and five grans, the U.S.A., chocolate (any kind, anywhere), meeting new best friends, traveling, exploring new cities, museums and art galleries, scribbling, reading books-books-books. Sharing my new book — “Nine Lives of a Marriage — A Curious Journey” — written with Holocaust survivor, Eva Friedlander with others.

Travel Favorites: Sipping a glass of wine on Ladera’s verandah overlooking the Pitons in St. Lucia at sunset; cruising down the Danube between Vienna and Budapest wrapped head to toe in a woolly blanket; tiptoeing through the tulips in the Kuekenhof Gardens in Holland; luxuriating in a massage in an outdoor wickiup at the base of Sedona Arizona’s red rocks at The Enchantment; playing among the “flutterbys” with three grandchildren in the Day Butterfly Center at Callaway Gardens.

Personality Type: Lazybones, athletic nerd, friend-collector, reader-dreamer-stargazer.

Most (Un)Memorable Travel Moment: Removing the entry card from its pocket in a hotel room in Florence, Italy which trapped my roommate in total darkness in a coffin-sized shower in a windowless bathroom (and no way to turn on the lights without the card). Whew. Still living it down.
