  • Scott, Paul here from International Living…I read that last piece you did for us and thought it was really good, so I’m wondering if you’d like to contribute to a story …
  • I loved your article about traveling with the kids! (I have three myself.) I was wondering if you’d be interested in writing another one for me…
  • This is fantastic! It turned out so well. Thank you for this and for getting it over to me so quickly. I will let you know soon if I have any questions at all.
  • Thank you so much, Scott–and for turning this piece around so quickly. It’s been fun to work with you, too. 🙂 Do stay in touch–I’d love to see/read about where you travel to in the future…
  • While I have you, I wonder if you would be interested in writing another piece for me? I was thinking about a piece on how travel writing, and press trips, allow you to travel more with your kids.
  • … Fredericksburg is posted. Thank you for submissions that are easy to work with, edit and post! Another great article by you.  Thank you.

From my Readers

  • I just stumbled upon your blog and wished to say that I have truly enjoyed surfing around your blog posts. Thanks and keep up the great work!
  • It’s beautiful.  Didn’t know anything about the place.
  • The way you described La Rapiere reminded me of Circa 1886 in Charleston. They made us feel like a million bucks and the food was amazing. If I’m ever in Bayeux, I’ll try it out. I’m a sucker for good seafood and chocolate cake. 
  • Monet Museum and Gardens also sounds like something up my alley. It looks gorgeous and peaceful. A couple of months ago I went to the Wilson Rose Garden in NC and loved it. I’m always open to finding new ones! 
  • Great itinerary! We’re hoping Tuscany will be our next big trip.
