Who is Tom Douglas’ favorite traveling companion?
My wife, definitely. She is a go-getter. Unlike me, she likes to make plans. In our five weeks in Paris, my only criteria were visiting places with no stars and making no reservations. That was a big mistake — not so much on the star perspective, but the no-reservation thing. She’s like a mini travel agent. She loves to travel and she’s been out-traveling me lately. She is coming around to my idea that camping should be done at Ritz-Carltons and Four Seasons, and that outdoor eating should be room service.
