Visiting Austria, Spring 2012

A day away in Austria—Spring 2012

I’ve been writing travel guides since 2001 and I remain very proud of the six Maryland Delaware Guides I wrote for the prestigious Frommer’s, as well as webpage updates I wrote for framers.com. In addition, I wrote one edition of the Insider’s Guide to Baltimore.

A journalist for the past 35 years, I like combine my passion for word with my passion for travel.  Most importantly, I like to tell a good story whether for local publications or here on my blog.

A Day Away Travel keeps me traveling and writing, searching and exploring all the places you might want to know about. I try to keep the tourist in mind wherever I go and I only write about the good stuff.

From a visit to the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park: Ice cream made right at your table in Bocuse, the French restaurant at the Culinary Institute of America.

If it’s in here, I thought it was fun, a good place to visit, or a restaurant I (and I hope you) will never forget

I’ve been surprised by what blogposts keep readers coming back to my blog. These are a few of the Top Ten–

Berlin: Picture Perfect Small Town: main filming location for Runaway Bride. 

An Outdoor Ballroom in Versailles: My favorite part of this grand chateau was the ballroom featured in the Kate Winslet movie, A Little Chaos.

Delaware Stops Along the Underground Railroad: popular every month of the year.

Romance in a Small Town: Western Maryland hometown of romance novelist Nora Roberts features a romantic inn and restaurants — all lovingly portrayed in Nora’s Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy.

10,000 Step Tour: Havre De Grace, City by the Bay: Since I became the owner of a Fitbit, I’ve used it to tour towns near and far. It’s fun and I feel like I did something healthy too. This post about a pretty little waterside town in northeast Maryland has been the most popular.

Shopping the Avenue in Hampden: I went shopping in this funky little part of Hampden and had so much fun and saw so much cool stuff I made it a blog post. And it’s been a big hit. I just returned for shopping and dinner — it’s always worth the pain of finding a parking space!

  1. Thank you for visiting my side, Side/Dishes – and I’ll have you know your 10,000 step tour of Manhattan at the height of the holiday season has done the unimaginable…make a native New Yorker miss their city in winter. Well done!

    I’ll be following along – feel free to follow Side/Dishes! https://sidedishesblog.wordpress.com/

  2. Thanks for liking and following my blog, “With Humour and Hope: The Only Way to Live.” It’s not really a travel blog, but there are travel posts. I also post about health issues, and may try and combine these two at some point, but always with the main theme of humour and hope in mind. Please drop by again and comment if you’re so inclined.
    Cheers,
    Christine
