I talk with Lisa Falour a United States Expat who has lived in France for almost 20 years. Lisa's artwork is in the permanent collections of female artists at MoMA and in many other major museum permanent collections around the world, such as the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Sweden and The Museum of Modern Art in Mexico City, as well as smaller museums such as The Amarillo Museum of Art in Texas. She has had more books published under a variety of pseudonyms than she recalls offhand, and in the past 25 years has appeared in many book anthologies.She writes in English, French and Italian and has written articles published all over the world since the '70s. A former FM and AM radio show host in the USA, she most recently appeared as a guest on FRANCE CULTURE at Radio France in the "Mauvais Genres" series, and France recently voted that out of all the guests for 2013, the segment with her in French was the one they requested to be replayed by popular demand. She has modeled, done movies, television, been a visiting artist in Tuscany, Italy, and semi-retired, enjoys travel and sharing fun things she discovers -- especially bargains and unknown places.

This week, Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from The Athenaeum in London. Situated just steps away from St. James Park, this family-owned establishment is one of Peter’s favorites. He’s been going there for more than 30 years, and it started because of Sally Bulloch, the electric, dynamic general manager—and at the time the only woman to hold that post in a London Hotel. We pay tribute to Sally this week, as we’re joined by Tim Arthur, CEO of Time Out, who gives some of his off-the-brochure secrets for visiting London.
Also joining us is London travel writer and U.S. expat Amy Laughinghouse who talks about the best walking tours in London. All of this and more when Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from the Athenaeum in London.

If anyone could travel the world in 80 days without breaking a sweat, it would be Spelman alumna Martice Sutton. The 25-year-old globetrotter’s passion for all things international has taken her from Johannesburg to Istanbul to Paris and back.

To date the organization has hosted a Passport To the World global engagement summer camp in Philadelphia, sponsored first time passports for girls 10-16, and have created two educational travel experiences to Toronto, Canada and Turrialba, Costa Rica.

Nadine Hays Pisani, a native of Elizabeth, New Jersey, who attended Rutgers University, resides in Costa Rica with her husband and dog, Clementine. Nadine is the author of the best-selling series, Happier than a Billionaire.
She shares her weekly adventures on her blog: www.happierthanabillionaire.com where she writes, “All I can tell you is that I was one of those individuals who was burnt out from the rat race. Maybe that was my addiction as well. It’s easy to become a workaholic. It can sneak up on you disguised as the American Dream. The interesting thing about my journey is that I still have a strong work ethic, however it has taken on a more creative form. What I have discovered is that when I do creative things, work no longer feels like work: I finally feel like I have a life that fits.”
When not writing, you can find her at the beach, on the back of a scooter, or frantically tossing scorpions out of her bed. Join her on her blog as she navigates living as an expat in the sometimes confusing, always beautiful, country of Costa Rica.
