Biography

Back in college, Bill Weir always figured he'd settle down in a career and live happily ever after. Then he discovered traveling. He dreamed of exploring the world, saved up some money, and quit his job. It was the best decision he ever made.

In 1976 he took off on his bicycle, "Bessie," and rode across the United States. That led to more trips, including a bicycle expedition around the world. Correspondence with authors of the guidebooks that he used led to the idea of writing a guidebook of his own.

But which place to write about? Bill realized that the best destination lay underfoot: his home state of Arizona. He began work in 1984 on what became Moon Handbooks: Arizona. Other guidebooks followed. Now Bill has moved his comprehensive guide about Arizona onto the online world at www.arizonahandbook.com. Here you can read about his latest world travel adventures.
