Andrew's Favorite Travel Tips
Tip #1: Always carry binoculars, even to unlikely places
It is amazing how often I find binoculars useful
and how often I wish I had them when I don't. Can't get close enough to the Mona Lisa to be able to see it?
You might feel self conscious using binoculars in the Louvre, but you'll see the painting when everyone else
is just looking at the backs of a lot of heads. With your binoculars in hand you'll be able to see detailing
on the ceilings of the rooms at Versailles, Saint Paul's Cathedral, and the Vatican with better clarity than anyone
since the people who built them. The spectacular windows at the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Chartres are a medieval
story-book. With the naked eye you can barely understand what they are trying to say. With binoculars, all becomes
clear. So don't think of them as just a tool for your hiking or boating trip. Bring 'em along wherever you go.
