French Visitors To the U.S. Told To Keep It Cool


Tho we admired Charles Boyer and his amorous ways many years ago, recent instructions from Paris tell their citizens not to emulate him when they travel in America.

On a trip to Rome several years ago, while visiting the Spanish Steps and Colosseum, we were harassed by aggressive male locals. The same thing happened in Venice and Pisa.

At first, we were flattered at the attention by young men to two middle-aged tourist women. However, we’re concerned that on our upcoming trip the advances could become personal attacks or robbery.

It’s called voluntourism, involving signing up for a trip that combines the pleasure of travel with the satisfaction of helping people. With this year’s terrible record of hurricanes and forest fires, senior travelers can pitch in and help where most needed.

For example, combine a Caribbean cruise or vacation to stay and help rebuild homes in Puerto Rico, Haiti, South Florida and other areas devastated by the hurricanes. Also, with the continuing deadly forest fires in Northern California, volunteers are needed to help those left homeless and other necessary aid.
