Old Dogs, New Trips is our tongue-in-cheek name for a couple of seniors who feel young enough to make travel what we do. Vay David has years of experience as a writer/editor/publicist and actor, while John Laudando has been a graphic designer and photographer since he was a teenager. We are a married couple living in East Hampton, New York. and have a biweekly column in The Independent, a Hamptons newspaper. We do all our own booking and planning and try not to spend a lot, and we like to keep it simple but fun. We're happy to share our successes—and admit our pitfalls, to help our readers avoid them. And we like to express our appreciation for the best meals, places and people we’re lucky enough to find.
