Do you have a boomer bucket travel list? Somehow the topic always comes up when Alan and I are on a cruise. We sit on our balcony sipping a cup of coffee as our ship sails the ocean, like we did this morning on the Silver Cloud, dreaming about where we would like to go next.
Of course, if you are a long-time reader of My Itchy Travel Feet, you know that a cruise to Antarctica on Silversea’s Silver Explorer is at the very top of my list. Also, as a lover of all things Christmas, I’ve always wanted to visit Germany’s Christmas Markets. I’ll be checking that one off after our AMA Waterways river cruise in December 2012.
What do you think is at the top of Alan’s list? If you guessed photographing the Northern Lights on a winter trip to Norway, you are correct. Alan also has his eye out on a whale watching adventure cruise in the Sea of Cortez. And both of us are eager to see the polar bears in Churchill, Manitoba.
Closer to home, Alan and I are hoping to see a grizzly bear in Glacier National Park this summer — from a safe distance. We also want to explore the wild scenery of the Magruder Corridor in the Bitterroot Mountains along the Montana-Idaho border — a four-wheel-drive adventure that will take us way off-the-beaten-path.
