The Best Austrian City in Italy

A Quick Visit to Trieste

Trieste VisitThere is much more to Italy than Rome, Florence, and Venice.  We do recommend visiting those three cities if you have never been to Italy before.  However, there is so much more to explore.  In between trips to Croatia, we had the opportunity to go up to Trieste, very close to the Croatia and Slovenia border. Although we spent only a short time there, we found it to be a refreshing and most enjoyable way to experience Italy.  Read about our short visit to Trieste in today's blog post.

Are Free Airline Upgrades Even Possible?

Read on How to Get Free Airline Upgrades

get first class upgradeEveryone loves to get upgraded when flying.  There's more legroom, free drinks, better food, and it's just a heck of a lot nicer than getting stuck in coach.  However, as we all know, upgraded seats can cost a lot of money.  For instance a round trip flight in coach between JFK to Paris CDG on American Airlines in October runs $454 in coach.  Upgrade to first class on your own and it will cost $4,992.  So, who wouldn't want to get upgraded for free?  But in general, airlines are stingy.  However, they are exceptionally stingy when it comes to giving away upgraded seats. In today's blog post, The Professor gives some tips on how to get that "free" upgrade.

Andy Herbach Eating and DrinkingWhenever we go on a small group tour to Italy or Paris (or anywhere else, for that matter), I strongly suggest travelers take a copy of Andy Herbach's books.  Andy Herbach is the author of the Eating & Drinking series of menu translators and restaurant guides, including Eating & Drinking in Paris, Eating & Drinking in Italy, Eating & Drinking in Spain and Portugal and Eating & Drinking in Latin America.  The Professor can tell you, without equivocation, these are the best guides for not only selecting the best places to eat, but in helping diners read and translate what's on the menu.  No more "point and pray" when selecting from a menu.  Andy's guides help you order confidently and correctly from the menu.
