About Me


I’m Jeanne Neylon Decker.  For years, friends have been asking me for travel tips and restaurant recommendations and I’ve been happy to oblige. If you’re looking for a cool wine bar in Berlin, terrific restaurants in Portland, Oregon or a great little gelato place in Marzememi the next time you’re in Sicily, TravelTawk can help. Interested in a list of favorite small museums in Paris– should you find yourself there in mid-summer and the thought of standing on a three- hour line at the Louvre doesn’t excite? I’ll gladly share.

You won’t find tips for spelunking or slot canyon treks–those are not the kinds of adventures that make my pulse race. Look to TravelTawk to find overlooked places at interesting destinations, small museums, beautiful architecture, ancient ruins without the crowds, comfortable accommodations that won’t break the bank, and the never ending quest for fabulous food—that’s more my style. I write about places I have personally experienced, for better or for worse. I will happily include comments and reader’s recommendations and will identify them as such.

Read on, ask questions, or share your thoughts via email Jeanne@traveltawk.com or on Instagram and Twitter @traveltawk.

    Just signed up for your blog and will let you know how the trip to Puglia goes. Lecce is supposed to be gorgeous and we’re also looking forward to visiting the little town my Mom’s family is from.
    Stammi bene e ci vediamo presto.
