Readers will never look at travel in the same way again as author Scott Bailey shares Vacations and Libations: Enjoy France and Europe “Our Way.” This book will plant the desire for exploration in those who have always dreamed of embarking on an upscale European adventure.

Complied over a 15-year period from 1995 – 2011, Vacations and Libations: Enjoy France and Europe “Our Way” is a summary of European travel notes and experiences of Scott, Melanie and Drew Bailey. It is not a travel guide, comprehensive wine book nor is it a substitute for the encyclopedic dining guides. Here, the author and his family report on their food, wine and travel experiences and rate: Highly Recommended (excellent); Recommended (very good / good) or Not Recommended. In certain circumstances, they may defer as Judgment Reserved.

What makes the author’s trip style is in the nature of assimilating into European culinary and oenological life and living it as a native does, rather than a tourist on a once-in-a-lifetime European grand swing to see all the touristic sights. Featuring a series of regional wine experiences, dining venues and practical tips, Vacations and Libations: Enjoy France and Europe “Our Way” is sure to increase the reader’s enjoyment of participating in the finer points of French and European ways of life. These personal recommendations are particularly helpful when people finally decide to make plans for their own gastronomical and vinous travels and explorations.
