Love levees?

Love them? Frankly I never thought of them but a new travel friend, Lucy Tobias, has written a great blog on how much fun they are to walk on.

Lucy, author of 50 Great Walks in Florida, is an authority on the authentic areas of the state that tourists too rarely encounter.

Tip: And of course it's Florida which is 95 percent flat, Levelers.

Her website is a source of many good tips, but see for yourself. Here's the link to Loving Levees:


I'm in Atlanta at the moment for a meeting of professional travel writers throughout the Southeast. If I run across any other goodies, I'll share.

By the way, a phlebotomist - that's a nurse practitioner who draws blood - at the Mayo Clinic Jacksonville gave me two tips perfect for travelers.

According to her, the best hand sanitizer is Walgreen's store brand.

And for those cuts and scrapes before, during and after traveling, Nexcare bandages stay on better than the more famous brands such as the one with the name that is synonymous with the product.
