I'm off to Europe next week for whirlwind visits to London and Paris. I've been planning this trip since November, and I've got my itinerary down to where I'll be at exactly what time and even what I'll order in which restaurants. I'll concede maybe I'm a little more meticulous than most people, but when you've only got a week to see all the major sights in two cities to which you'll probably never return, you don't want to waste precious time hemming and hawing about what to do next when you're there.

Turns out, there's another Long Islander who loves to plan vacations, and while I do it for myself and my family, The Traveling Professor, Stephen Solosky, does it for you.

Solosky, who lives in Garden City, is a professor of Mathematics at Nassau Community College and has traveled extensively to the "City of Lights." He's the author of "The Traveling Professor's Guide to Paris" and runs travelingprofessor.com, as well as guided tours of Paris.

Tomorrow night, he'll be holding a seminar, "Your Personal Travel Guide to Paris," at NCC in Garden City (room B133) from 7:00 pm-8:30 pm.

During the seminar, Solosky will answer common questions and concerns, including where to stay and dine on any budget, what to see and do, warnings and dangers in Paris, packing lists, offbeat attractions and more.

Plus, each attendee will receive a free copy of his book.

The fee for the seminar is $25.00
