Good travel writing

The New York Times runs a great series of travel articles written by Matt Gross called The Frugal Traveller.

An article posted today has a great description of visiting Venice in Winter.  The article is heavy on describing travelling with a 6-week-old baby, but we non-parents can skip over those bits.  I will be noting down the hotel details for if we ever make it to Venice.

What got me turned on to this column was a 2007 series of a cross-country road trip in America.

To our English readers:  The American series give a great glimpse into the diversity and wonderfulness of small town America.

    I like reading his column. I don’t think we’ll take the advice on travelling with a six week baby, even though round trip tickets from Houston to Heathrow are $308 right now.

  2. Oohhh – I think a trip to come see Auntie Sarah in May would be just perfect!!!
