Age: 72, it's a wonderful age!
Florence, Italy. We discovered Florence as a couple on a driving vacation for our 25th anniversary. We stayed at an inn that was a home of Napoleon called Villa Cora. We revisited Florence this past November while on a cruise celebrating our 50th! My husband and I want to return and enjoy some more of this artistic and romantic city.
2. What are your favourite heleneclarkson pieces and why?
Tulita "Maxi" Reversible Skirt
Lille Reversible Poncho
The Tulita "maxi" skirt, paired with my Lille Poncho is so comfortable and perfect for any occasion. It's such a wonderful outfit to mix and match and add a touch of elegance. Travel made easy!
I love this pant outfit for travel or everyday activities such as shopping and dining with friends and family. I've packed this outfit on many excursions including our two week cruise in Europe this past November. P.S. Adding the Nadi Wrap for extra warmth makes this a perfectly comfortable outfit for flying.
3. Favourite travel accessory?
A carry-on bag for flights plus a travel purse. I am not fond of backpacks or totes while sightseeing. A travel cross-body purse that holds an umbrella and a few necessary items is more to my liking leaving my hands free.
4. How often do you travel in a year?
It all depends. We plan one annual two week vacation, hopefully to a foreign country or a cruise.
We also take several 3-5 day stateside trips. We love Bed and Breakfasts or unique inns. We fly or drive for those. I am a fan of Karen Brown travel ideas, whether on a European driving vacation or in the US.
We research travel books or book online ourselves. We have moved many times in the US and lived twice in other countries. Travel has always been our passion and experiencing different cultures, there's nothing better!
5. Travel Advice?
Do not travel in fear, but be cautious. I think to embrace the differences of people and cultures is a key to unlocking a great enjoyable adventure of life.
