Europe Guided Tours With Extra Leg Room

As your resident travel agent, I try to keep a look out for travel options for my tall friends as well as myself.  If you’re tall, there’s nothing worse that being crammed into a tour bus for two weeks where your legs don’t fit.  I know of a tour company that has taken out many rows of seats on their coaches and reconfigured them so that everyone has more leg room.  Awesome!  They only take up to 40 people on their buses, so you aren’t traveling with a massive crowd. Plus, they are one of my preferred suppliers which means great prices and amenities.

One itinerary I would love to take is the Highlight of Europe Tour – as it is a 17 day tour around Europe visiting England, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and France.  Land only prices start at $4945 per person (based on double occupancy) for trips this Summer.

These are luxurious guided tours with stays in first class accommodations. Many meals are included and  your bags and tips are handled for you. You’ll be given headsets so that you can hear everything your local guides are teaching you while journeying to historical sites.  Shorter, longer and less expensive tours are also available.

You know me from helping you find tall clothes, but I’d also love to book your travel.  krista mayne tall travel agent

Hot Deals on Summer Staples: Tall White Button-Up Shirts

Have you looked at the tall selections on The Limited’s website recently?  I just did and was pleasantly surprised at the variety of tall blouses.  I’m always on the prowl for classic, versatile pieces and the Ashton white button-up blouse caught my eye for several reasons:

1) The blouse is offered in three different sleeve lengths (long sleeve, short sleeve and sleeveless)

2) The sizes range from XS-XXL

3) All 3 styles have good reviews

4) The attractive neckline is perfect for framing your favorite statement necklace

5) The blouse is long enough to either tuck in to pants or a skirt or to leave untucked and belted.

6) All three tops are currently 40% off bringing the price to under $30!

Long-Sleeve Style 

The long sleeves can either be worn full length or cuffed using the button tab.    If you’re looking for a button-up in other colors, look no further since this blouse is also available in 8 different hues.

Short-Sleeve Style

If you don’t like sleeveless styles but still want to stay cool in the summer, the sleeve length on this blouse might be just what you’re looking for.  I have found this type of sleeve to be quite flattering on long arms and do like that it provides more coverage than a sleeveless style.

Sleeveless Style

I used to have a similar tall sleeveless blouse and wore it year round.  In the summer, I wore it to work under a light blazer to keep from getting too cold while the office AC was blasting. For a summer weekend jaunt or a night out, I wore the blouse alone either tucked into jeans or a skirt or untucked and belted. I wore the top so much I literally wore it out so it’s high time I buy another one.
