Hi there! I’m Stefanie Weisman, and I love traveling, history, art, and literature.

I love anything old — the older, the better. I have a B.A. in History with a specialization in medieval Europe, and an M.A. in Art History with a concentration in ancient Greek and Roman art.  I live in the ultra-modern city of New York, but I visit the Old World whenever I can.

I am the author of The Secrets of Top Students: Tips, Tools, and Techniques for Acing High School and College. I’m currently working on a historical fiction novel about the ancient Minoans.

I am also addicted to traveling. In the past three years, I’ve been to the following places, in no particular order: Belize, Brazil, Italy (twice), Spain (twice), France, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Russia, Japan, Taiwan, Palau, Turkey, and lots of places in the U.S.  And I’m not done yet!

This blog will chronicle the many interesting/ amusing/ bizarre things I have seen on my travels.  I’m also going to write about ancient and medieval history, art, literature, and anything else that catches my fancy. I hope you enjoy my ramblings!

“Travel is intensified living – maximum thrills per minute and one of the last great sources of legal adventure.  Travel is freedom.  It’s recess, and we need it.” — Rick Steves

    Hi Stefanie,
    I really enjoyed reading Glimpses of Paradise–very witty and engaging, made me want to explore those caves in Turkey and street markets in Yucatan!
    I am also a travel buff—so far, I’ve visited 40 countries, from Switzerland to Zimbabwe to Pakistan to Argentina. Climbing ancient temples of Angor Wat, wondering how 700 giant Moai statues, 50-ton each, “walked” to the edges of Easter Island and staring at lions from the jeep only 3 feet away in Masai Mara were some of my most memorable experiences.
    BTW, have you seen travel2unlimited?
    This guy is a former trader who quit his job and for the last few years travelled to 300 countries and territories on 7 continents. It’s like a travel diary with tons of great pictures –check it out!
