Ask a local in Europe

Dear Friend,

I feel a silly sort of pride when I stump spellcheck. I am smarter than the machines!

It is easy to overestimate the power of those devices in our palms. To glance down instead of looking up at the world. Yes, there is an app for that. But you could ask the person next to you. She is surely more charming than Siri.

In many cases, people offer the best solutions. By not asking a human, you miss out, especially when you travel! GPS might get you there, but it won't recommend a picnic spot on the way or proudly send you to its brother-in-law's farm stand.

Our European staff people are our biggest strength: practical problem solvers with deep knowledge, warmth, and the personal touch that has launched many memorable adventures.

In this issue we visit some of our favorite people in Europe, follow a friend's advice for castle hopping with grandkids, and meet a brilliant woman who has solved a basic problem for breast cancer survivors like herself.

The world is full of fascinating people. Ask anyone!

Happy travels,
Andrea Szyper
Communications Director
