Travel Product of the Month

What to Wear on the Road

Bluffworks Travel Product of the MonthA few months ago, I found a travel product that has been one of the most practical travel products I have ever used.  When on the road, it is always difficult for me to pack a variety of clothes for the different locations I go to and the different functions I attend.  For instance, I might spend a few days in Iceland, then I am off to Peru, then I need to go to Scotland for some business meetings.  I have found a product that is perfect for me, and maybe perfect for you.  Read the blog post to find out more.

Travel Product of the Month

Eat, Drink and be Merry on Your Next Tour

small group tours to italyI have been taking my small group tours to Italy and Paris for years.   Although I know my French and Italian pretty well, ordering from a menu can be a challenge.  For example, when dining at Aux Lyonnais in Paris, exactly what am I getting when I order "Caillette de Chabeuil" or "Gigot d'agneau de lait roti"?  In Rome, what happens next when I order "Braciolette d’abacchio ai ferri con patate" or "Straccetti di calamari alla piastra".   Use this travel product of the month to avoid using the hazardous "point and pray" method when ordering off a French or Italian menu.

The Absolute Best Places to Eat in Rome, Venice and Paris

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.
Andy is also the author of several books published by Europe Made Easy Travel Guides, including Paris Walks, Europe Made Easy, Italy Made Easy, Paris Made Easy, Berlin Made Easy, Amsterdam Made Easy, French Riviera Made Easy, Provence Made Easy, Oslo Made Easy, and Barcelona Made Easy
