News for the Week

A bucket list for traveling with grandkids offers great travel advice for boomer grandparents.

If you’re thinking about taking the grandkids on a safari or other bucket list trip, start with our advice at Traveling With Grandkids.

From Donna:

Earlier this week, Alan and I returned refreshed and relaxed from a New Year getaway at Triple Creek Ranch. We took no photos. I posted nothing on social media. Instead, we enjoyed each other’s company, staying in the moment even during the spectacular fireworks display that the ranch hosts at midnight on New Year’s Eve. While it’s fun to document your travels to share with family and friends, I highly encourage you to schedule some “staying in the moment” time on your next trip. You won’t regret it.

Looking for a travel experience to add to your bucket list that you won't soon forget? Alan and I highly recommend a hot air balloon ride at the Bluff Balloon Festival in Bluff, Utah.

Safari pants worn over a thermal base layer work great on a winter trip. And they pack light!

Yes, I wear safari pants on cold weather trips. Worn over a thermal base layer, I stay warm and dry. If it’s really wet,I’ll put on waterproof pants over the ensemble. If you enjoy an occasional winter trip, this is the smart, budget-friendly way to outfit yourself. Check out more of Donna’s ideas at cold weather gear for women.
