Travel Thought for the Week

“There are, really, only two kinds of travelers: those who visit the Eiffel tower and love it, and those who find it boring.”

– Leonard S. Bernstein, American writer, poet, Never Make a Reservation in Your own Name, 1981

Dinner in Warsaw

One of our Hand Crafted Travel® small groups from 2006, enjoying dinner in Warsaw, Poland. Note that not all of the meals are the same. That's one of the advantages of traveling with a small group tour – you get to choose from the menu, rather than everybody having the same meal, all prearranged by the tour company.

Above Bolzano

During a trip prepared by Hand Crafted Travel® you can ride the cable car from Bolzano/Bozen, Italy to Soprabolzano/Oberbozen. Glide silently above vineyards, farmhouses, and tiny villages, then at the top you can pop into a local restaurant for lunch, continue your journey among the mountains on a narrow gauge train, or choose among dozens of hiking trails with views of the Dolomites.

Olive Mill in Tuscany

Oh! how I miss being in Europe, and running across sights like this old olive press in Tuscany.

Travel Thought for the Week

“How fortunate we are that the British Museum and the National Gallery are full of objects that are neither British nor National.”
– E. R. Chamberland, Loot: The Heritage of Plunder, 1983
