3 Star Paris Hotel Picks

My Favorite Mid Range Paris Hotels

best 3 star paris hotelHotel rated as 3 stars in Paris usually are usually well-appointed.    Good ones are tastefully decorated and have amenities like wi-fi, modern facilities, and quality services.  However, on your tour to Paris, don't be surprised if the room size is small, regardless of star rating.   Also, location has very little or nothing to do with the star rating.   Most 3 star hotels in Paris I have stayed in do not have restaurants.   See my blog post for my recommendations for the best 3 star hotels in Paris.

Why We Are Not Going To Peru In 2015

Maybe It Will Be On The Schedule in 2016

machu picchu traveling professorPeru is a wonderful journey.   Lima is like Southern California and old Europe mixed together.   Cuzco is a cultural experience that all travelers should experience.   The train ride from Cuzco to Aguas Calientes at the base of Machu Picchu is one of the most dramatic in the world.   It is difficult to describe in words the beauty and thrill of Machu Picchu.    The Sacred Valley is a spiritual journey.   The Amazon Jungle is one of the great outdoor experiences in this world today, right up there with the Galapagos Islands.   Peru is safe.  The hotels we stay in are better than anything we stay in Europe.   The food is world-class.  So, why are we not going to Peru in 2015?
