Com­fort food “In Am­s­ter­dam, if I feel home­sick, I go to Restau­rant Red. They only serve three things: steak, Cana­dian lob­ster and wine.” Lo­cal fave “Out­side of Am­s­ter­dam is a lit­tle city called Delft, which is where Ver­meer did his paint­ings. Ev­ery­thing still looks like it did in the 1600s.” Greek treat “One place I just dis­cov­ered and should have al­ready known about is the Greek is­lands. Mario Restau­rant in Naousa is su­per­authen­tic and has a won­der­ful evening vibe. It’s Greek food and the Greek is­lands at their best.” Week­end get­away “I like spon­ta­neous travel. I used to be a very ‘Let’s plan two months ahead’ kind of per­son, but now I like mak­ing plans the week be­fore. There are so many choices within two hours of Am­s­ter­dam. One week­end, I said to my fam­ily: ‘Why don’t we just go to Mi­lan? I think the Expo’s on.’ We booked on a Thurs­day and ended up in Mi­lan for two days. You have to be care­ful with flights, but in the world of ho­tels, prices some­times go down at the last minute and you can get great deals if you’re not in high sea­son.” Best base camp “I love find­ing in­de­pen­dent prop­er­ties that have re­ally high rat­ings and ones that are a lit­tle more lo­cal and at­tuned to the cul­ture of the city they’re in. I re­cently stayed at Ho­tel Cubo in Ljubl­jana, Slove­nia—it’s right in the cen­tre of town, and it was amaz­ing. It’s the num­ber one rated [book­ing.com] ho­tel in Ljubl­jana for good rea­son. Pretech­nol­ogy, you would never have found places like this. You’d ask your travel agent, and they would have no idea. Tech­nol­ogy now al­lows us to take a lot of good, cal­cu­lated risks.” Must-have tech “I like to read good books and nov­els when I travel— al­most al­ways on a de­vice. I have the new­est iPad, but I wish they would take an­other crack at it and make it even lighter. It can still make my arms a lit­tle tired.” n
