Have a day and a half to kill and an unlimited budget? Or perhaps just needing a little vacation time away in the middle of a busy day? Somehow I find myself in neither boat, and yet still engorged in Elaine Sciolino’s “36 Hours In Monaco”, an envious day in the life account of the travel writer’s opulent, yet speedy trip to the French Riviera.

If you happen to have time to replicate, be sure to attend Luxe Pack Monaco (Oct 23 – 25), one of the greatest shows to find luxury packaging.
