I have had a subscription to International Travel News since the turn of the century (a little Irish hyperbole). Seriously, this monthly publication – with its down-to-earth b/w newsprint format – started in Sacramento, California way back in 1976. It covers everywhere in the world EXCEPT the United States. All of the information is very practical. I’ve decided to take excerpts from a column that ran in March 2018 by Mark Gallo. It is titled The Mindful Traveler and it’s very relevant because we’re heading for the summer travel season.

In another article that appeared in the International Travel News of August 20, 2017 he notes that the most common adapters for US travelers to use for smartphones, tablets, digital cameras and many models of laptops are dual-voltage with 2-prong charging cords that work with non-grounded adapters.
To sum up, if you’re going to France or Germany, you need the Continental Europe adapter plug. However, if you’re traveling to a country where two or more different adapters are used (e.g., China, India, parts of Africa and South America) you’ll need to do more planning for wall-socket specs.

Over the years, the airline industry has experienced many twists and turns – and one of the most remarkable has been the evolution of the stewardess or airline hostess. That said I was stopped in my tracks by an article in Travel & Leisure, April 2020 titled “Taking Wing.” It featured a photo of a flight attendant’s dress from 1965 and was skillfully written by Ann Hood who has delivered a detailed on-the-scene report.
In a city like New York, that has a population of close to nine million, it’s great to know that there’s something for everyone. This gave me the idea to write about fun and/or favorite spots in all five boroughs, namely: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. So, in this blog we’ll cover places I’ve personally enjoyed over the years and spots mentioned in an article that ran in Condé Nast Traveler magazine in April 2020. Here are five slices of the Big Apple:
Roughly eight years ago, I was chatting with a young lady in her twenties when she started raving about something called “Birchbox.” I stopped her at once and said, “What on earth is Birchbox?” Well, she looked at me as if I had two heads and said with dismay, “You don’t know about Birchbox!”
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers.
