We travel in a leisurely manner, never rushing simply to get somewhere in a hurry. We do not want to rush through 7 countries in 10 days! We chose an area and try to see it well. We are both photographers and enjoy all the scenic areas of the US, Canada and Italy. As you can see by the map we have traveled overseas as well. We enjoy good food, not always fancy food, but local and fresh.
We prefer staying in hotels that are reliably clean and not rustic. For that reason we are Diamond Members of the Hilton Hotel chain with a Rewards program. We rent condos for longer stays in favorite places to cut down on the costs and have a place to cook and do laundry. We include local must-see sights, museums and galleries, parks and drive through neighborhoods to get the "feel" of how people live. We use REAL print maps and love to travel the small side roads in lieu of the the freeway…that way we run across magical towns and scenic views and wonderful people.
