  1. As a North Central Florida resident, I enjoyed your article on Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings homestead. I hope you find the time to come back to our area sometime to discover the other treasures North Florida has to offer, like the hundreds of crystal clear springs, or paddling down the Suwannee River.

    Best wishes on your travels.

  2. Hi,

    I ran across your blog today and really enjoy your articles. Even though I'm not a baby boomer, I think they are good for any age. I'm interested in being a freelance writer myself . I would love to be able to visit different places and write about my experiences. Do you have any tips or suggestions on how to get started? Thanks!

  3. I am a travel agent, but only speak English and feel very inadequate in other countries. I feel like Spanish (Latin American) would be the best language for me to learn. Baby boomers have been left behind and it is up to us to pick up and learn something new! Thank you for giving us this opportunity!!

  4. I would like to learn Portuguese (Brazilian) since I sing some Brazilian sambas and bossa novas and would like to feel more confident about the pronunciation. J have always wondered about this program and was happy to read more about how it works. It makes sense. How nice of you to offer it.

  5. I have tried for 20 years to learn Spanish. Classes, books, and tapes fill my bookshelves but still, I have not had any real success with my efforts. My greatest difficulty has been to learn the verb tenses and verbally communicate in spanish. If Rosetta Stone Language Learning Software can help me overcome this stumbling block, I will be very grateful indeed.

  6. As soon as we are home from one trip, my husband & I are daydreaming about the next one. When our grandson was three I told him we were going on another trip because, ” We have itchy feet.” He said, “Not me. I wear socks!”
    Our grandson is now seven & has itchy feet as well. We have taken him to Central America twice & he likes to suggest future locations he thinks we should visit. I would love to learn Spanish & teach it to my grandson as well.

  7. I have wanted to try the Rosetta Stone since I heard their ads. I need Spanish badly. I speak a little; mostly medical. I work in a county hospital ER and despertly need more Spanish. Between working and travel;this would be a greast asset for me. Thanks! Judy D.

  8. Travel is the venue for understanding. Having experienced other countries and varied cultures I am made aware that travel alone is only a beginning. Language is the other half of understanding. Though I can fumble my way thru a conversation for directions and help, I still come home feeling empty because I cannot actually converse with the citizens and understand the culture on a deeper level. I would be very pleased to have the opportunity to use Rosetta Stone to assist my learning.
    Thank you for this chance.

  9. I work exclusively with Koreans doing construction work and I seem to get by. However I would really like to communicate my concepts so as to produce better results. At the very least I would like to learn how to say, “I told you so!”

  10. I never cruised before but definitively I will love to do it one day, I know is somewhere in Alaska. What I'm really will love to do is to watch Whales in special Blue Whales those are magnificent creatures that survive from almost extinction and for what I know those tours also helps financially those people who try to protect Whales environments. And for sure I will recommend Mr. Alan and everyone who can to take a road trip to Alaska specially to watch the Whales.

  11. Great idea for a trip across Canada by bus. Trains don’t stop for nothing, and here you have a European style bus, stopping at breath taking spots available only by car. Do they serve wine and beer, snacks????

  12. I would be listening to one of my many audio books. Listening to a book makes the time go by so much faster especially when I am driving a long dull highway.

  13. I love watchign Mad Men on my iPhone on long flights. I watch several episodes back to back!

  14. If I win the idox case for my Nano 5G, I plan to use it to record the music and messages from my weekly Church sermon to then share with the men in my class at a prison unit here in north Texas. They really enjoy the video element that I have been able to bring in from You Tube downloads, but only the audio is available from the Church that I attend.

  15. Thanks for commenting, Carolyn. Please visit again soon.

    So sorry about the lack of press trips for you. Many of the trips we
    take are on our own dime. Finding comped travel is extra-hard with
    the decline in the print media.

  16. Ahh. . .finally making plans to retire & just found  the ‘MyItchyFeet’  website.  It looks like a match made in heaven!  Would love ‘The California Directory of Fine Wineries’ to start my plans for future travels. I’ve heard Mendocino is a fun area. . .lots of antique shops nearby.

    1. Mendo or anywhere in No Cali in the fall, the sun verses the fog
      is abundant.  My old backyard.  I have visited every winery there is, as
      I lived n Petaluma for over 40 years.  Yum yum on the wine, antiquing,  great food and scenery.  You will not be disappointed, just bring money.

  18. The entire area in and around Traverse City, MI, is one of my favortie places to vacation.  We have rented houses, stayed at B & Bs, stayed in hotels, and stayed with friends a lot over the last 24 years, which is saying a lot since we live in Central Kentucky — a 10 hour drive.  This year we played golf at Interlochen and at the Leelanu Club, and went fishing on Bass Lake.  We had great family meals at Boone’s, Sledder’s, and  Knot Just a Bar, just to name a few. The Old Mission Peninsula offers both beer and wine tastings, not to mention beautiful views of both the East and West Bays.  Front Street remains to be one of my favorite places to shop.  We bought a lot of Cherry Republic goodies both downtown at at Glen Arbor and some of Jenny’s Pasties to bring south.  As always we enjoyed our  vacation “Up North” in this beautifully scenic location.  

  19. My maternal grandparents lived in San Antonio when I was a child. Was AND still is my favorite place to go- whether on business or to just relax and play!
