Travel in Western Europe: Recommendations

She hasn’t been disappointed yet. I asked a former travel agent what she uses to get recommendations for accommodations and itineraries.

“Without a doubt,” she replied, “I use Karen Brown guides. The hotels, inns and bed and breakfasts aren’t inexpensive but they are always great.” She further explained that Brown doesn't cover every single country.

For Italy, try her exceptional hotels or bed and breakfasts. If you narrow your travel to Tuscany and Umbria, check her guide to the area.

Sample Ireland's gems or the hotels, inns and B&Bs in England, Scotland and Wales.

Similarly, France comes alive in her charming bed and breakfasts or her amazing hotels.

Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Portugal are covered at length.

Finally, don't miss Spain, one of my personal favorite countries.
