Our European Travel articles
I’ve always enjoyed sharing our travel experiences and helping other travelers. Here are links to my internet articles, trip reports, and blogs. Some of my writing tells about our family’s travels. Most of my recent articles are from the Slow Travel Tours blog; I post there five or six times a year. I’ve also written articles for the Slow Europe website and TheLuberon.com website. (A few links are to articles written by Charley or our daughter Kelly.)
