What I can do for you:

Planning your independent trip to Europe

Tours versus independent travel

Advice on guidebooks, packing, time vs money, hotels and alternatives

Air travel, trains, rent cars, tradeoffs


I am not a travel agent. I offer some free advice and charge a modest fee if I do some real planning or research for you.

I have been to Europe 52 times in all kinds of situations. I will go to London with my wife in July.
