Jan Gets a Blog!
I realized one of my long-time goals and launched my Girl on the Go blog covering travel-related news, events in Atlanta and relationships. Check out other blogs from travelgirl contributors here.
Pick of the Week
I'm lucky enough to be the proud owner and user of several Apple products, my Mac Stack, as my husband calls it. So I'm forever in need of chargers and also needed a new alarm clock. So I'm loving the Time Command from Stem Innovation, which functions as an alarm clock and charger for the iPod, iPad and iPhone. There's also a feature to control your bedside lamp and wake up by turning the light on when the alarm goes off. And the sound is great for listening to my tunes. $99.95 at
Downton Abbey Tour
I admit my obsession with "Downton Abbey" and would love to take this tour that leaves from London to travel to Oxfordshire village and then to Highclere Castle, which is the main Downton Abbey set. You can stroll around the grounds, tour the "Above Stairs" rooms where much of the show is filmed and even see inside the bedroom where the Turkish diplomat spent his last night on earth, an event that threatens to embroil the Crawley family in scandal. Other tours from britmovietours include James Bond and Harry Potter tours, as well as walking and bus tours of London.
Paris By Heart
Apartment rentals are an awesome way to have a bit more space as well as a kitchen when you're traveling. If you're heading to Paris, check out the options at ParisByHeart.com. Email them with your dates, desired price range, neighborhood and amenities and they will even help conduct a search for you. Check out the FAQ with extensive information for planning your trip. And the rental comes with a guarantee that the apartment will look like the photos.
