Along with hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles, I have authored or co-authored more than 30 travel books, mostly guidebooks. These cover my native New England and Eastern US and Canada, as well as southern Europe, where I once lived and return several times each year.
So where does the luxury come in? Like you, I like to pamper myself with the best experiences I can afford. I love to stay in Italian villas, sample the creative genius of top American chefs, restore my balance in spas, look out my hotel room window at the best view of the Matterhorn, watch the opera from box seats, dance in the ballroom and stop to smell all the best roses. Most of all, I think everyone can travel in some luxury while still keeping within their budget.
Those readers who love Italy, Spain and Portugal as I do, may want to read my articles on the Southern Europe Travel page at Suite101.com.
