Everybody else has a page devoted to what they
are passionate about. I love travel. My husband
and I have been lucky enough to travel to some
wonderful places, and we love to share our recommendations
and suggestions. Last year on the Get Caught Reading
at Sea cruise, we even got to give a talk on it.
So I'd love to share some Dreyer's Travel Tips(especially
for international travel), and then some of my
favorite places to stay.

Okay, specific recommendations:
You'll notice they're all B&Bs, most in Ireland,
and most away from the cities. Yeah, okay, it's
our preference for travel. But whereever we go,
we try and stay at small family run places. Not
only does that provide a more personal atmosphere,
it inspires unexpected benefits. Always ask the
homeowner for local recommendations. They're more
than happy to help. In fact, once in Ireland when
I asked a lovely lady where the local music pub
was, she called her husband in from blowing tree
stumps so they could take me themselves.
Whereever you go, if you choose this way of travel,
be flexible and respect the privacy of your hosts(kitchens
must be invited into). And be prepared to be surprised
and delighted. Anybody with great(reasonably priced)
recommendations of their own, let me know. I'll
try and include them: For other info on Ireland
or England, I highly recommend their Tourist Boards.
I have a few links on my site, but the net is
a great place to shop for places to stay. If you
have any questions, comments or recommendations,
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I'm prejudiced. Ireland is where God lives for
me. I love the beauty of the country, the sound
of the sea, the soft northern light, the skirling
music and raucous sport, the history and the crac
(you have to ask an Irishman about that). One
of the most important things to know about going
to Ireland, though, is that fully half of the
experience of visiting is the people themselves.
I've never met a kinder, more friendly, more hospitable
people anywhere in the world. My husband swears
that as children they were warned that if they
failed to give directions the fairies would get
them. It's why I always stay in B&Bs, and why
I learned to stay in B&Bs everywhere I go. Not
only does that provide a more personal atmosphere,
it inspires unexpected benefits(also, because
of the hot economy, a lot of hospitality workers
in the cities are from Eastern Europe. Still nice,
but it's not the local flavor).
Always ask the homeowner for local recommendations.
They're more than happy to help. In fact, once
in Ireland when I asked a lovely lady where the
local music pub was, she called her husband in
from blowing tree stumps so they could take me
themselves. Just remember to respect their home
and the privacy of your hosts(kitchens must be
invited into). And be prepared to be surprised
If you haven't been, get a book like Inside Ireland.
Decide what you want to see and how you want to
get there. And most importantly, remember that
Irish roads aren't like ours(and it's more than
driving on the wrong side of the street). The
country may be the size of Illinois, but the average
speed is about 35mph. And that's not counting
the times you stop for photos, or a beer, or to
ask directions (make a point of it. It's an experience
all to itself)
The Lombard Pub
1 Lombard Street / 44 Pearse St.
+353 1 671 8033
A real find. This B&B is a well-run, comfortable , reasonably priced set of rooms over a pub in the very middle of Dublin. Everything is walkable. You sign in at the pub and the managers are in charge, but they're friendly and helpful and kind. They were wonderful when we ran afoul of the volcano last trip and had to keep changing reservations. I highly recommend it.

We took two trips to Scotland. One that I call the
Flying American Tour, or Clans, Castles and Cathedrals--everything
but Edinburgh and Glasgow. It's another country I loved
driving through. Wide roads, lots of space, amazing
scenery. It's especially fun to walk into a pub and
ask what the owner's favorite whiskey is.
You'll get everybody talking. And drink some great
The second trip we took, we only went to Edinburgh.
I found it much easier to take plane or train in and
then rely on public transport. It's a very walkable
city(although I swear it's all uphill), but your B&B,
hotel or local information office has a handy 3-day
pass on buses and trains, and entry to most of the major
attractions. And when you go, make sure you go on the
Mary King's Close tour. It really shows what the old
town used to be like. And it's haunted. A little girl
is down there, and tourists all bring her little stuffed

just too diverse to comment on in one place.
I've been lucky enough to see a lot of it.
The good news is that the train service is
amazing. The bad news is that it is also expensive.
There is also an excellent network of bus
lines. Or you can drive everywhere but London.
They actually charge tax for people to even
drive through certain areas. But the public
transport there is fabulous, and taxis great
fun, and I think reasonable. Remember that
when visiting, especially London, that August
is the European vacation month, and everybody
has come to see the same things you have(I
was once caught in a Japanese tour at Westminster
Abbey, and unable to even touch ground for
twenty minutes). London is another city I
highly recommend taking the double-decker
bus tour. And don't miss those historical
museums, like the Naval Museum. The Brits
really know how to put a museum together.

Italy is is bright, fascinating, musical, passionate, gentle, and, oh, Lord, is it friendly. There is just something about that Mediterranean light that makes you want to sit in one place with a cup of cappuccino in hand, watching the world go by. And the bells. Each town seems to have its own system, but there are so many churches that there seem to be bells ringing all the time, and it's glorious.
There is so much variety, you find you can't stop taking pictures. Learn a bit of Italian and you can have wonderful interactions with people everywhere. If you love well-worn history, evocative music and people who talk more with their hands than their words(they really do say "Maaa-ma MI-a!" all the time), this will be like dropping into a soup of experience. And I haven't even talked about the food.
Organizing the Trip
General: I used two travel agents, one in Italy,
Lionetti in Italy for train tickets and the south, and
Travel and Leisure Elite through American Express in the US helped us arrange tours.
Accommodations: I reserved the hotel rooms. I like that, and I find that even the best travel agents tend to go to their same default hotels. See my general travel notes on search engines.
Travel: How did we travel? Train. The Italian trains might not always be on time, but they are clean, comfortable and efficient. You can easily plan a schedule through the Trenitalia website.
- A bit of advice: There are no seats in a train station. So you don't need to get there really early. You'll find out your track 5 minutes before leaving. When it's announced, head for the You'll find out what track you'll be on 5 minutes before you leave. When they announce it, though, move fast. That train doesn't wait long.
Matera is one of the most unique places I've ever been. Mel Gibson filmed the Passion of the Christ there, because it really does look like that. After my second trip to Italy, I still say don't miss it. Matera is quaint, quiet, beautiful and walkable(although, like many places in Italy, you have to like stairs). It's still small enough that in the evening everyone dresses up, enjoys gelato and strolls the piazzas in the traditional passeggiata. The photo is of a religious procession I stumbled over.
- When making reservations, remember that many hotels have been carved out of caves.
B&B Alle Malve
via B Buozzi 102
- down in the historic Sassi, easy access, beautifully updated, and Giovanni's whole family helps take care of you(and you hope his mother Giovanna does the baking)
Domus al Barisano
via Lombardi n 16
- down in the historic Sassi near the Duomo. Lovely old house beautifully updated. Steps are involved. Worth it. And the host's name is seriously Fabio.
Via Morelli, 13
- 18th C palazzo up on the hill over the old part of town. Stairs are involved. Worth it!
- Elegant simplicity amazingly in a cave. Unmatched food and service. Reached from the bottom of the Sassi
via del Beccherie 33
- Another lovely elegant restaurant, this one up by the Duomo, lovely food and service
Ristorante il Borghese
via Lucana, 198
0835 314 223
- Comfortable, family-friendly place on the Piazza Lucana. Food is wonderful and reasonable, staff friendly.
|PRAINO (Amalfi Coast)
Amalfi Coast is spectacular. It is also straight up. I'm not kidding. Our hotel was 100 steps below the street). The town of Amalfi itself is fairly flat, but the tour buses live there, so it's packed. Positano is lovely, but it's expensive(and steeper than Praiano). We chose Praiano because it was between the two, reasonable and we could catch the coastal bus anywhere(first time I've done that. Embarrassed how easy it was). Great restaurants, family feeling, and sunsets to die for. But no parking. And you can easily get to Pompeii from here.
Hotel le Sirene
via S. Nicola, 10
- 100 steps down from the street, but call ahead and they will have someone help with bags. No frills, but none are needed. Each room has a balcony overlooking a spectacular view of the ocean and Positano, and there is a full bar downstairs so you can sip a drink and enjoy the view. Breakfast included.
Via G. Capriglione 13
Aaaaaaaah. That's the best way I can put it. Sweet little, friendly, happy restaurant with lovely food and a spectacular view. The kind of place where the owners encourage you to stay. We did, even if we could no longer see anything in the dark.
I usually don't do this, but I did want to warn you about another restaurant. For some reason everybody in Praiano recommends the next restaurant. And while the food is good, it is certainly not worth it. I've never met a ruder, more disagreeable, less accommodating staff in my life. Avoid ila Brace
via Gennaro Capriglione 146
Rome has had such a bad rap over the years, that I went reluctantly. Again, embarrassed. Of course it's noisy. It's busy. It's a city. It's also lively, friendly, gorgeous, clean, accessible, and oh, the history! The art! The food! I loved it.
Recommendation: We used David and Rosanna Incorati, the hosts of our B&B in Rome, as private tour guides. I highly recommend them. The tour was personal, passionate, informative and fun. They made a remarkable city truly an experience of a lifetime(and you don't have to stay with them to use their services).
- Vatican: I recommend a private tour. Otherwise the lines make Disneyworld look like the 6 Items or less lane. It will also help you decide exactly what you want to see in the Vatican Museum. Whatever else you do, though, do NOT miss the Sistene Chapel. It is a miracle.
Piazza del Risorgimento No. 36 int 16+ 06 39889323
- This is a basic B&B. Nothing fancy. But very comfortable. We rented an entire apartment for 5. Lovely neighborhood, amazing hosts, really convenient. The view out the window is the Papal Palace. (I waved). The very best part is the hosts, David and Rosanna, who were not only thoughtful, funny, generous and hospitable, but great tour guides. Even if you don't stay there, get in touch for tours.
We didn't spend much time in Florence this trip, because my family doesn't enjoy art. But when I come back(and I will), I've decided that I'll stay in Siena and train over every morning. Florence is glorious; it's grand. But Siena is quaint and friendly and small, a medieval walled city that oozes charm and geniality. Even better, after about 5 the swarms of tourists leave, and the city is yours.
But, wait! There's more! Tuscany really is that charming. If you can do it, get a tour of the hill towns, especially San Gimignano, which is priceless.
via della Sapienza 15
- Highly recommended for the amazing hospitality, the central location, and especially the freakin' amazing patio that has one of the spectacular views in the world. If you do nothing but sit on that deck with a bottle of wine and some cheese you bought down the street and watch the light change over the hills and buildings, it would be enough. The rooms are simple, clean and roomy. The only problem for us was Room 10, which had a terrible mold smell when we stayed there. I've been assured that the owners know about it and are dealing with it. I'll try and update when I get further info.
Osteria del Compaccio
Vicolo del Compaccio 2
- Tucked in a backstreet below the Duomo, friendly, small, with good food. Reasonable price.
There are few places in the world that can't be mistaken for someplace else. Venice is one of those places. I have never been anywhere like it. The color, the light, the narrow, twisting streets, the wedding cake buildings and gleaming canals. And then, I took a vaporetto down the Grand Canal and thought, "I've seen this all before." and realized that I was thinking of a Canaletto paintin from the 18th century. It really hasn't changed sine then.
Venice Note: Maps suck. Especially the locally produced ones. The big thing you need to know is that the two directions are toward the train station, or toward St. Marks. And the Ponte Vecchio is right in the middle.
Calle Cendon Cannaregio 534
- My very favorite room in Italy. A 15th C palazzo right on the Cannereggio Canal, which is a quiet neighborhood near the train station. Beautifully decorated, lovely staff, all the percs, and amazingly reasonable for Venice. It was our splurge for the trip. I recommend you spring for a suite. They have balconies out over the water. I could have spent months sitting on the 15th C balcony sipping coffee and watching the boats bring supplies up the canal and the light change on the buildings.
Al Leon d'Oro
Via Canonici, 3\
- Don't miss this gem. Small, out of the way, literally a mom and pop restaurant. Mom cooks and pop mans the front. Amazing food, really good prices.
|My husband travels to Prague on business and has
been begging me to join him. I finally did, and
have to say I'm really glad I did. This is an
amazing city. It's the only major European city
to not be bombed during World War II, which means
the historic center is intact. And this represents
more than a thousand years of history. I recommend
you stay down in the historic area. We stayed
in the Male Strana, beneath the castle, and the
area is quaint, packed in great little pubs and
restaurants, and steeped in history. If you like
stained glass, don't miss St. Vitus Cathedral.
If you like classical music, you can't swing a
dead cat without hitting a historic palace or
church that isn't playing something each night.
My only caveat is to familiarize yourself with
the language before going, especially if you want
to use trains or subways while you're there. It's
very intimidating for a westerner, but after about
a day, I felt much more comfortable about it.
And most Czechs are fluent enough in English to
communicate. Also, if you try out at least the
basics, Please, thank you, etc. the locals are
delighted, and will even help you with pronunciation(it
became a game with me). Just don't expect a whole
lot of green veggies at the restaurants.

We got to stay in India for almost three weeks. I'm not going to kid you. For the first 4 days, all I could think was "I'm so glad I came. Now I'll never have to come back." I've traveled extensively, as you can tell. I thought I was prepared for the sensory overload. I was not. I began my trip in Delhi and felt battered by the people and the noise and the dirt. But right about the end of that fourth day, I began to see past that to see the beauty. Within two more days I was fascinated. Within 10 I was in love. I truly can't wait to go back.
Every cliche about India is true. It is a land of contrasts. In Delhi the animals fed off the trash in the streets(although in Calcutta, they are using trash to fuel). Being at the edge of the desert, it is a very dusty city. And the noise! If I heard one more horn honk, I thought I'd explode. But there is so much beauty, such diversity. I always thought the Irish people the nicest in the world. I now know better. The Indians are, hands down.
Yes, there is extreme poverty. There are children beggars you must not even make eye contact with.(every local will tell you that you will do more good by donating to Mother Theresa). But there is color and sound and an amazing joy that seems to permeate everything. I think of walking down the bazaars, where gold and scarlet flower necklaces swing in the breeze, and women in iridescent yellow, green and magenta saris crouch by the road with a blanket of fresh fruit: mangos and tomatoes and bananas. In a nearby shop a salesman lifts a length of peacock georgette in the air so it wafts into a woman's hands. Aromas of coffees and spices and flowers vie with exhaust and cow dung. The ancient buildings glow in the sunlight, their designs so intricate you can't believe them possible. The air is thick with shouting as men sit cross-legged negotiating, music from the local Sikh temple, the call to faith from the Mosque. India truly is a sensual banquet.
Again, Rick and I arranged a self tour. I reserved the hotel rooms using Trip Advisor(if you take a guided tour, you will usually stay only in chains). Then I used the brilliant people at Travel & Leisure Elite(a travel subsidiary of American Express) to arrange drivers, guides and interior transportation. I can't recommend them enough.
I can only speak to two specific areas: THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE and CALCUTTA, as they were the only areas we had time for.
|THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE (Delhi, Agra, Jaipur)
DELHI: Many historic sites. Otherwise, not my favorite place.
AGRA: Gateway to the Taj Mahal.
Only stay in Agra long enough to see the Taj, preferably at sunset.
TAJ MAHAL: Okay, I admit it. The only reason I went to the Taj was because my husband had gone once without me and I never let him forget it. I mean, can't you close your eyes and see the Taj Mahal? Well, let me tell you. No you can't. I have rarely been flummoxed in my travels. The Taj flummoxed me. It really is beyond description, a gleaming wedding cake that seems to float in the air. And up close, intricately carved with inlaid gems and stone. It really, really is all that, and you'll regret missing it. The only warning I'll give is that it's a lot more crowded than you can see in that picture with Princess Diana.
JAIPUR: A pink fantasy of a city. Beautiful architecture, wonderful history, and it's the world capitol for cutting of colored gemstones. Don't miss an exhibition. We stayed in a little gem of a local hotel that is an old haveli, or Hindu home, and ate a sumptuous dinner off of gold plates at the Rambagh Palace, once the home of the Maharajas of Jaipur. And make sure to make time for the Amber Fort, about 20 miles outside of the city. If you get there early enough, you can ride an elephant up to the ramparts (even more cool than it sounds).
RANTHAMBHORE TIGER SANCTUARY: Just south of Jaipur. A small sanctuary that still has the greatest number of tiger sightings in the area. You can't stay within the sanctuary, but I highly recommend the hotel we found, just outside. A family home turned hotel with extra rooms in tents that resemble 4 star accommodations. There is just nothing like coming back from a hard day hunting tigers to sit around a campfire by the pond(where the crocodile lives), and having young men in white jackets hand you a gin and tonic before dinner. Civilization at its finest.
Hotel Vasant Continental
Basant Lok, Pratik Market
New Delhi, Delhi, India
ITC Mughal Agra
Taj Ganj, Agra 282001
#1 Savista Retreat
About ten miles outside Jaipur and reached via a road that will make you question your choice. Have faith. The pictures on the web site don't do it justice, and the hosts are fascinating as well as truly hospitable. We stayed here for a couple of days just to rest.
#2 Umaid Bhawan Hotel
D-1-2A Behind Collectorate, Banipark
Jaipur, Rajasthan 302016, India 0141 2316184
A heritage hotel with character. An old haveli, or Hindu home that is all color and whimsy. A great base for touring Jaipur.
RANTHAMBHORE TIGER SANCTUARY:
Khem Villas, VPO Sherpur Khiljipur, Dist. Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan,
Telephones: 094140 30262, 07462 252099, 07462 252219
Khem Villas call themselves a luxury jungle resort. It is truly exotic, between a historic house and camp tents that are more luxurious than most hotel rooms, a pond with a crocodile, evening drinks served by waiters in white coats.
My favorite place in the country. A beautiful melding of Indian and British architecture at its finest.
No animals in the streets here, but the medians are lined with small Hindu temples to their 2 million and 2 gods. Lush tropical foliage and gleaming white buildings, a great swath of green that is a horse racing track, and the ever-present brown flow of the Hooghly River, which is a tributary of the great Mother Ganges. If you are interested in history, ask your guide to show you the British Cemetery from the earliest days of the Raj. It was filled in 1820, and is eerie and beautiful and evocative today.
If you're hesitant about traveling to a new place,
a tour is a great way to get an overview and learn
where you want to return. If you are in a tour
group, consider getting a bit away once or twice
to see people you normally wouldn't on the bus.
In general, in big cities I've found that the
on-off bus tours are great for getting a lay of
the land, especially the double-deckers, if you
enjoy architecture. Even if we've been to a city
before, we often take them just to enjoy an overview.
Anybody with great (reasonably priced) recommendations
of their own, let me know. I'll try and include
them: For other info on Ireland or England, I
highly recommend their Tourist Boards. I have
a few links on my site, but the net is a great
place to shop for places to stay. If you have
any questions, comments or recommendations, email
