Where I've Been

After David and I returned from our Italy/Spain trip this spring, two friends asked me to help them plan their own frugal trip to Europe. Although they could have looked at my blog, since most of the advice is there, my friends wanted me to give them a step-by-step procedure to follow in organizing their first European trip. 

As we worked together over the next couple weeks, I understood why they wanted personal help instead of looking through the blog on their own.   I had trouble, too, finding particular articles I wanted them to read. Most every tip is indeed on the blog....but locating the exact piece of information when you need it can be problematic.

It finally occurred to me that a book was in order. If I consolidated all the tips and tricks David and I have learned along the way and through the years, and arranged all the information in a step-by-step format that anyone could follow, maybe everyone would be able to take a meaningful and affordable trip to Europe (or two or three or twenty) the way David and I do.

So, that's what I've been doing--writing a book that I hope will benefit travelers and would-be travelers. I'd like to tell you a bit more about it in the article below.


  1. Lynn -- I've been following Foundation for Women, would like to get involved as a mentor myself. ALSO -- I'm wondering if you have considered your book as an e-book. I'm just getting into developing e-books for my clients (and mself). It could be a great way to make your book available & cost-effective for you & your readers. Just a thot . . . . let me know if you want to discuss In the meantime, I look forward to gleaning from your experiences at frugal travel -- greatly needed info!!

  2. Thanks, Lynn. I hope my blog is helpful to you.

    Thanks, too, for your suggestion about an e-book. I am in the process of querying publishers right now, in fact. We'll see what happens.

    Hope to meet you at a Foundation for Women meeting sometime. This is such a wonderful organization that it's a joy to work with everyone involved.
