Norway's herdal farms

Is cruising in Norway on your bucket list? It’s not all majestic fjords. Alan and Donna visited waterfalls and goat farms on a Regent Seven Seas Cruise.

From Donna:

Alan and I are still on the Oregon Coast, where the weather seems to change by the hour. My new, blue waterproof jacket is getting a workout!

This week, Alan traveled to Los Angeles on business while I stayed in Oregon on a personal writing retreat—no answering email, very little social media or business-type duties and hardly any cooking. What fun to finally work on the backlog of trips that I want to share at My Itchy Travel Feet. So what’s coming up for you to read about? A Triple Creek Ranch winter getaway, Ulva Island nature walk (that’s in New Zealand), seeing pandas in Chengdu, touring Siricusa and a Lanai jeep tour.

My writing retreat also included editing photos. Where is this beach located? You’ll find out in an upcoming article!

 I could probably hold a year-long writer’s retreat and still not exhaust my potential article list. But that would mean no traveling for me. And that’s not going to happen.
