My Itchy Travel Feet | The Baby Boomer's Guide To Travel

It’s clear that one of our preferred methods of travel is cruising on small luxury ships. One of the main reasons we love to travel by cruise ship is the vast number of distinct features we encounter aboard each cruise. Our latest experience on Silversea’s Silver Spirit had us crossing the Atlantic after we explored the beautiful villages of Southern Italy. Although this was our third Atlantic Crossing, the experience was as unique and interesting as the first time.

Crossing the Atlantic with Silversea

After our first week exploring Southern Italy by land, we embarked on a Silversea cruise to see some of the most beautiful Mediterranean ports before an Atlantic Crossing brought us back to the U.S. Click on: Crossing the Atlantic with Silversea to read more about our experience.

4 Hours in Menorca

Menorca is one of the beautiful islands that make up Spain’s Balearic islands in the Mediterranean. Not only does it offer incredible beaches, but years of history as well. Click on: 4 Hours in Menorca to read more about our experience.

And the Angels Sang on Montserrat

Barcelona is a common port stop for many Mediterrranean cruise ships. However, if you’re looking for a unique experience, our excursion to Montserrat was a beautiful day in a mountaintop monastery filled with angelic voices.
