What the Pro's are saying...

Jack canfield

Author of the beloved "Chicken Soup for the Soul" Series

"Where were Patty's travel books when we were doing seminars in Italy? I own many travel books, but Patty's are uniquely different. There really IS a better way to travel!"

Dr. Zahi Hawass

Minister of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, Egypt (ret.)

"As the author of nearly 50 travel books, I know travel books! Patty has done something very unique here. She has a way of making you 'see' your trip differently - not just eat, drink, then leave. You will go deeper and leave more satisfied with Patty's books."

What Kind of Traveler are YOU?

Most travel books speak to the first-time traveler: 'Top 10' sites, How to eat & drink your way through your vacation, 3 Days in..., speed traveling (13 cities in 8 days - whew!), etc. Lotsa talk, but little substance. But that's what folks are used to. Until now...

My books take you through 101 sites per city. How to go slower. How to go deeper. How to avoid the crowds. How to 'see' what you're looking at. And they're beautifully photographed!

If this is you, than I have the books for you!

P.S. Each of these books comes with a FREE matching
Spin-a-City Spinner Board!

One of the biggest pain-points of traveling is the PLANNING process. Maps, charts, brochures, guidebooks, notes, websites, YAAAGGGHHH! 


Instead of following the masses to the limited 8-10 sites in Rome, Venice and Florence, now you can SPIN your way through 101 Sites in ROME, 101 Sites in FLORENCE, and 101 Sites in VENICE! These cities are thousands of years old, and have so much more to offer than just a few sites. But how do you find them?  With my new Travel Spinner Boards, you can plan from the street corner - before the light turns green!
