After a busy ski season we stretched April vacation a few days to do more travel-with-kids "research" – this time to Venice and Verona – then headed back to Europe in June to explore the fjords in Norway and the beautiful Art Nouveau city of Alesund. The rest of the year was closer to home, with the Maine coast, New Hampshire’s White Mountains, Quebec’s Eastern Townships, Quebec City and the Charlevoix. Appointment as Events Editor of Global Traveler Magazine means I’m looking for great festivals, so I’m on my way to England as they celebrate the 800th Anniversary of the Magna Carta.
