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.

Travelers have started asking us questions (we get more and more of them everyday).  One problem with addressing this issue is that the situation is developing.

4 Terrific French Restaurants

Andy Herbach Paris restaurant picksOne of the best books to help diners find great restaurants for every taste and budget in Paris is Eating and Drinking in Paris  by Andy Herbach.  Not only are the restaurant selections in the book plentiful and highly recommended, the book is also a menu translator to help the diner read and interpret a French menu.  So, instead of guessing what oeufs meurette are (poached eggs in red wine sauce), Andy's book will tell you.  It also lists wine bars, historic restaurants, food markets and more.  The Traveling Professor never goes to Paris without  Eating and Drinking in Paris.  Read about 4 of Andy's favorites in today's blog post.
