No, this post is not about what you think.  It is about a fantastic YouTube video that makes me smile every time I see it.  After you watch it, you might think to yourself, “How is this related to travel?”  To me, hearing the song instantly brings to mind images of rolling Austrian hills and a twirling Julie Andrews.  Also, look at the faces of the people who are not participating in the dance?  They look so happy!  That’s what travel does to me, it makes me happy and I hope it makes you happy, too.

Amelie’s Paris

Every time I see the movie Amelie, with Audrey Tautou, it makes me want to immediately book a plane ticket to Paris.  To enjoy the whimsical life like Amelie!  Luckily, most of the filming locations were shot on location in the Montmartre section of Paris.  On my next trip to Paris, I am going to live like Amelie and stop off at all of the filming locations, including the fabulous Cafe de Deux Moulins. This book, The Worldwide Guide to Movie Locations, is a must-have for any traveler who wants to add visits to their favorite movie locations on their next trip!  Happy Travels!

Where in the world?

Well, summer is almost over and I haven’t taken a vacation.  I think it’s because I have such a hard time deciding where to go.  Does anyone else have this problem? This year, I made a decision that I was going to travel to places that I consider exotic:  Argentina, Iceland and Peru. Of course, I will probably end up at my favorite place in the world:  Italy.  The hardest thing about traveling to Italy is that there are so many great cities, towns and experiences.  Although most visitors to Italy overlook the fabulous city of Milan, it is one of my favorites.  I can’t describe the feeling of seeing DaVinci’s “The Last Supper” in person or visiting the La Scala Opera House.  I only spent one day in Milan on my last trip so I think a trip to Milan is in my near future!  I stayed at a fabulous hotel in Milan on my last trip: Hotel Spadari al Duomo.  It had it a fantastic location and a reasonable price for Milan.  See you there!
