Stalking George Clooney

George Clooney's home in Lake Como, Italy
Sometimes the best vacations happen while you're busy doing something else. I came across an article awhile ago on girlgetaway. com. Picture this: a group of four friends were each going through what could be characterized as, well, a rotten time in their lives.  The cure?  a girl getaway.  But where should they go?  They toss around perfectly good ideas but then suddenly someone blurts out, "let's go to Lake Como and find George Clooney!"  They're off!   Tracking George takes them from one fabulous place to another, meeting wonderful people who help them stay hot on the trail, and the food!  oh my, the food - (apparently George enjoys a good meal now and again)  things they never would have found if they had spent even a minute trying to plan it.  

Think of a goal - silly, fun, important to no one but you - be open to where it takes you. You might just find George Clooney....and what a vacation that would be.  Sigh.

About Me

My photo
I didn’t dip my toe in an ocean until I turned 25 and my friend Sandy and I traveled to Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. After that week, I was hooked. I loved being somewhere new; smelling the smells, tasting new food, seeing how other people lived. It energized me. As luck would have it, I landed a job that allowed me to travel all over the US and often to Canada. Being a sports event television producer, I was on the road all the time. That's when my love affair with travel began. Now, its 20 years later and still no one gets more “geeked up” about planning a vacation than I do. All I need is a destination and some travel companions and my fire is lit! I start delving into my favorite hotel sites, sifting through photos and reviews, comparing, contrasting -it’s like an addiction. The travel shows with tips and trends? I study them like a playbook. I LOVE doing the things most people hate doing before they go on vacation. Whether it be searching for a food tasting tour with a local or discovering a romantic B&B in the middle of New York - I’ve found it and I’ll share it with you. So....where should we go?
