top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>Are you planning a summer getaway? Interested in taking a summer driving tour from your home in St Louis, USA, London, England or Berlin, Germany but don’t know where to go or how long it will take to get there?? Diva Reader and Regular Diva Contributor Lady Lotus recently emailed, sharing an excellent tool for helping plan summer getaways!

Lady Lotus writes: “To help brainstorm for places to visit within driving distance of your home, use a great website called tools.com/radius-around-point.htm” target=”_blank”>Free Map Tools. You simply type in the city from which you’ll be starting your journey (skipping over unnecessary details such as Latitude and Longitude) and see what locations come up within a particular radius of your starting point! A four hour drive is about 300 miles, but you could put in to drive less or travel further! Free Map Tools charts all the places you could go within a pre-designated amount of driving!”

Now that’s a great resource for planning all your driving vacations travel! Thanks Lady Lotus!

Happy Travels,

The Antiques Diva™
(with a little help from her friend Lady Lotus)

  • Hi Sarah Sophia,
    What a wonderful newsy comment you've left! I really enjoyed reading your blogs mentioned and am so glad you enjoyed my painting in the Home Office pic. Its funny, it was painted as just color but everyone sees a sunset over the sea!
    Thanks for the encouragement!

  • Thanks for your comment, Toma. Frankly I thought, it would rather have shocked you… but nice that you perceived it so well. Checked out the post you mentioned. is it the golden painting on the wall? oil? Seem like a sunset over the sea… but it's very difficult to tell from a distance… anyway, nice warm colors and it brings harmony into the room. That is also always very important to me from the interior design – point of view!

  • If you ever have a chance to visit Florida again on an antiquing excursion, please let me know so that I can send you a copy of the monthly ANTIQUE SHOPPE NEWSPAPER. Our monthly publication has a listing of shops, shows, auctions, stories and so much more. Our sister publication, ANTIQUES & ART AROUND FLORIDA magazine will be coming out with a Fall/Winter issue this year, published in September. To learn more, email me at gfgtaylor@aol.com or go to http://www.antiqueshoppefl.com or to http://www.aarf.com

  • Sounds like a great idea! and I also loved your post on Italy which I saw on Phivos blog first! Might use that for inspiration for going down as well…

    thanks for your comments on my blog, though it was some time ago… bvut sorry, I am the same way that you are…- just didn't get around to answering. i know it's bad manners and I really would like to be more up-to-date with that, but things have been crazy and I just don't have the time to do everything I want to do … so I am always behind.

    Anyway, I should tell you that my e-mail-address doesn't seem to work right now. You might wanna try keith@mail.dk instead, if you still want to mail me the pictures.

    I have also just came back from the north – the very far north that is!


    and you might be interested in that one, since it says a lot about my relationship to Germany:


    Last not least, there is soemthing I really would like you to look at – if you have the time:


    I don't know if you have done this before, but given you're not too busy right now, why don't you also let us know 10 things about yourself?!

    hope, you're enjoying the nice weather!

    love, sarah sofia
