And, since Alan and I have experienced five crossings—Regent (Voyager and Navigator), Silversea (Silver Sprit and Silver Wind) and Seabourn (Sojourn)—our answer is a resounding YES! What IS a Transatlantic Cruise? Occurring in the fall and spring, […]

Corsica

Corsica

From Donna: As a southern girl, I think of beaches as those wide expanses of sand on the South Carolina or Florida coast where the water’s warm enough to hop on a raft to ride the waves. Yes, I still like riding them. To me, Oregon—Alan’s favorite—has always represented a rugged seacoast with small beach […]

From Donna: Everyone here at My Itchy Travel Feet—Alan, Nicole and me—are thinking of those affected by Hurricane Irma. The pictures out of the Caribbean are devastating and now we wait to see how Florida and the southeastern U.S. is impacted. In the meantime, during our escape from Montana wildfire smoke, Alan and I drove […]

Arches National Park near Moab, Utah

From Donna: Sorry to start our News for the Week on a serious note. Have you hiked to Sperry Chalet in Glacier National Park, or overnighted there? On Thursday afternoon, August 31, 2017, the historic lodge burned down due to the Sprague Fire. The Glacier National Park Conservancy is spearheading fundraising efforts, although it’s too […]

Driving the Burr Trail is a fun experience in southern Utah.

From Donna: Forest fires to the left, hurricane to the right, I feel like I’m singing a version of Jimmy Buffet’s song Fins. Seriously, for those of our readers in Hurricane Harvey’s path, stay safe! And if you’re one of our Montana neighbors dealing with the Lolo Peak Fire, currently the largest in the nation, […]

From Donna: Alan and I have always enjoyed the times our cruises have called on Barcelona. It’s such a lovely city. The terrorism attack that targeted tourists in La Rambla this week  is tragic. How many of us have walked that promenade while exploring Barcelona? We’re so sorry for the loss of life and those who […]

Pilot Mountain, North Carolina

From Donna: I’m declaring August, “The month everyone looked up.” First off, this weekend is the peak viewing time for the Perseides meteor shower. Planning on hosting friends for a party? Space.com shows you where and when to look. And then there’s the hoopla over the solar eclipse, which is August 21, 2017. Don’t expect […]

Akaka Falls in Hawaii.

From Donna: The Bitterroot Valley is currently smoked in from area forest fires, which means that Alan and I are searching for an escape. The U.S. economy is obviously doing well because there are no rooms to be found on the Oregon Coast—a two-day drive from our house. Of course the upcoming solar eclipse is […]

Wildlife on Top of the World Highway

From Donna: I have the travel itch. Maybe it’s due to the smoke in the Bitterroot Valley (sorry, no hiking report to give you this week). Or it could be the summer doldrums. Or perhaps it’s because I’ve been busy writing travel articles from previous trips. You can guess where this is going. Our motto: […]

Miles Canyon in White Horse

From Donna: Wildfire season is in full swing in the western U.S, which is one of the reasons that I’m not posting a hiking report this week. There are lots of fires in our corner of Montana. And if you’re visiting national parks like Yosemite, Glacier or Yellowstone, there’s a good chance you’ll experience some […]
