About leslieq

  • Last trip
    Tuscany, Cinque Terre in October
  • Favorite destinations
    Ireland, England, Costa Rica, Oregon, various California locations (Pt Reyes a favorite)
  • Destination wishlist
    Spain - Basque region; Dingle Peninsula Ireland to play music in pubs
  • Best travel tip
    After airline lost my suitcase on arrival and didn't locate it until the flight back (yes!) I always carry all essentials on the plane. Had my hiking boots, rain jacket, meds etc on the plane so loss of suitcase on hiking trip to Ireland was annoying but not devastating.
  • Favorite hotel
    Stay in B&Bs. Burneville Farm in rural England was awesome
  • Favorite restaurant
    Low-key local
  • Never travels without
    Before: a giant bag of books. Next trip to Italy: got Kindle Fire for birthday. Will see how it works out...swore I would never do it!
  • All-time best travel moment
    Will have to think about that one!
  • Interests and hobbies
    Hiking, reading, playing Irish traditional music at local pub (tin whistle, learning mandolin, neighborhood walks & museums in San Francisco.
  • Quote
    "I have no strategy"...family joke about playing supposedly strategic card game in Costa Rica.
