Boomer Travel Resources
Alan and I think planning for a trip is almost as much fun as taking it, especially if you know the right resources to consult. We’re both planners and it’s not unusual for us to be working on a trip months — sometimes even a year or two — in advance. Although some of our trips are sponsored, many of our journeys are personal trips that require lots of planning on our part. We’d like to share our advice with you as well as the boomer travel resources that we use. Check back often as we’re always learning something new.
