J House Greenwich for Luxury near New York City
Luxury is not having to stay in New York City. We chose the Connecticut alternative and discovered a new hotel with an excellent restaurant and a nearby commuter rail station.
Even Experienced Travelers Learn Tips from Books
I spend a lot of time on the road, so I thought I knew all the tricks of the trade. But two books, “Smart Packing for Today’s Traveler” and “101 Tips for Women Travelers” taught me a lot of ways to make my travels smoother.
