Over the years, friends have contacted me when they’re planning a trip, looking for suggestions and advice. I love helping people plan travel, so I get excited and come up with huge long lists of things that they can do, or favorite spots to eat/drink/have coffee/see a show/attractions not to miss if I’ve visited or (often) lived there.
I set up this website as a place to store, and share, these recommendations. I’ve lived in Ireland and the Northeastern U.S., and traveled around Britain and parts of Europe as well as hitting every state on the east coast of the U.S. at least once. If I don’t already know about a place, one of my favourite things to do is to research places that people are going- and find out about the transportation, if there are tourist discount cards available, and the interesting, unusual and historical attractions that may be slightly off the beaten track.
I intend, eventually, to offer my services to do this research for busy people who want to travel, but aren’t sure what to do when they get there. For the moment, however, I will be posting regularly(ish) on the blog. If you’re interested in that sort of thing, I also have a collection of goodies featuring images of a variety of places in my cafepress shop, and calendars for your enjoyment over on Lulu.
