Here I go!

I've been told many times over the years that I should write travel guide books, but this is as close as I plan to come to that!

Since getting my first passport at age 43, I have gotten to go places in this world that I never dreamed of seeing, and I'm an inveterate note taker. My travels since 1986 have been as a professional travel agent...which only increased that note taking. I hope to share some of the things I've found interesting for one reason or another -- maybe for cultural or historic reasons, maybe just beautiful, maybe ultra good, maybe just hilarious. And sometimes just because I liked it, related to travel or not.

My speciality in the travel business is Italy, though I handle travel pretty much worldwide..and if I don't keep up with a particular area, one of the great agents in my office does. See www.sallywatkins.com for more about the professional side of my life.

Your comments and shared tips are very welcome! I truly believe "we get by with a little help from our friends."

Far Away Friends

At this season, my thoughts turn to distant friends who I won't get to see or share a cup of something with over the holidays. Some in the USA, some abroad, some especially in Italy. For those in Italy...you know who you are: people with whom business first brought us in touch but with whom friendship grew to keep us more closely in touch. You have blessed and enriched my life!

So lift a glass or cup, accept a virtual hug and know that I wish we could spend some time together over the holidays.
