Creative holiday planning

Many years ago I saw an escorted tour for Northern Italy. I had been wanting to do the Po River Valley and this tour covered most to the town, Parma, Modena and Bologna. But much to my surprise the tour began in the Piedmont region, south west of Milan. And there was a resort.

Immediately I needed to go to this wonderful place; taste the wine, pick the truffles and enjoy the meals. So my plans changed and I went to the resort and then down to Cinque Terre, Lucca and on to Florence. Was a wonderful holiday.

Wonderful unique resorts are a great way to plan a holiday. Here are four resorts in very different parts of the world to begin stimulating your thoughts. Years ago I stayed at the Glenlo Abbey Hotel and ate in the train car! Every place you stay does not need to be a five star, in fact, if the holiday has too many five stars, their unique and special feathers dwindles. But three nights, now that can make a holiday pop. Here are the four thoughts for you to begin that next dream holiday.

I still want to do the Po River Valley, taste the Parmigiano Reggiano from provinces of Parma and Reggio Emilia, Balsamic Vinegar of Modena and Prosciutto di Parma and the Italian durum wheat semolina pasta! And of course then go on to Florence. Who would like to join me, possible this fall? Go into Milan and then all by train. So as many who would like to join, it will be easy to accommodate. Call and we can talk and plan. 617-876-6007
