About

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
