Clara Bosonetto About the author:
Clara proudly admits to being a Michigan Yankee. She left Motown in ’82 (where all of her family still lives) to travel through Europe (with Saudi Arabia as her home base) for two years before landing in Atlanta. The opportunity to see that bit of the world inspired her to take up a career in the travel industry. Clara began at Action Travel — agencies owned and managed by Clark Howard. Clara continued her career as a retail travel agent while assisting Clark with two weekly travel columns for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution until 1996 and solo travel columns through 2017. Each weekday Clara searches for the latest and greatest travel deals (that Clark hasn’t already found!)
