Our feet are itching to go in 2012.We have some very special travels planned starting with cruising the South Pacific on the Seabourn Odyssey (Sydney to L.A.). Have you been to New Caledonia, Ile de Pins, Vanuatu, Suva, Pago Pago or Fanning Island? Stay tuned for our reports. In June, Donna will be attending TBEX12 in Keystone, Colorado, to catch up with travel blogging friends while learning a few new tricks of the trade. Montana explorations will include Helena, some yet-to-be-announced road trips and a very special Glacier National Park hiking tour with Road Scholar. The year ends with our first European river cruise on AMA Waterways, Amsterdam to Basel with an extension to Lucern.

Where did we go in 2011?
Relocating to the Bitterroot Valley in Montana gave us plenty of opportunity for exploring the Northern Rockies. Joining the Spokane Porsche Club for a sports car road trip to the Kootenay Rockies in British Colombia was a special highlight. Donna traveled on an enlightening trip to Cairo as a guest of AuthentiCity. And, our Silversea Christmas cruise through the Panama Canal (San Diego to Ft. Lauderdale) more than met our expectations. Celebrating New Year’s Eve on Silver Cloud was the best!
2010 was a huge travel year for us:
We attended the Bluff Balloon Festival in Bluff, Utah; checked out Hidden Meadow Ranch in Greer, AZ; enjoyed a California sports car road trip from Paso Robles to Mendocino before ending in Sonoma; I attended TBEX10 in New York City; explored the Bitterroot Valley and Fishtail in Montana; reported from Cancun for Marriott’s blog paradise press trip, sailed Alaska’s Inside Passage with InnerSea Discoveries and American Safari cruises; explored Northern Italy on a boomer road trip before ending the year cruising from Rome to Ft. Lauderdale on the Seabourn Sojourn. Whoa, just reading that list makes me tired.
Did we have fun in 2009? Oh yea.
The Big Island of Hawaii and Molokai concentrating on off-the-beaten-path adventures and unique lodging; Eugene, Oregon with a Joe Cocker Concert thrown in for fun; Chicago where I attended the BlogHer conference and TBEX09; Cruising on Regent Seven Seas Mariner for 52 days from Vancouver to Singapore, with stops in Alaska, Siberia, Japan, South Korea, China, Hong Kong, Viet Nam, Cambodia and Thailand.
