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 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."

Small restaurant in Paris

I have had this place in my Paris Notes for Clients since 2003, and was delighted to see that it is where the Obamas ate in June 2009 – someone advised them well!

La Fontaine de Mars, 129 rue St-Dominique, 7th, metro: Ecole-Militaire. Always reliable, old fashioned bistro, chic clientele. Good traditional cooking, friendly welcome, good value; terrace seating in summer. See
