Looking for an expedition cruise you will never, ever forget? Check out Alan and Donna’s time exploring the Arctic ice!

From Donna:

I have one boomer travel tip for you this week: visit the Oregon coast in October. Alan and I have been enjoying long beach walks, coastal drives, and mountain explorations during spectacular weather with mild temperatures. That’s it for now. I have to get back to the adventure.

Isn’t this the sweetest covered bridge? We discovered Ritner Creek Bridge on a drive in Kings Valley, Oregon. No longer operational, the bridge has been turned into a wayside park with picnic tables next to the bridge windows. Cute, cute, cute!

From Nicole:

Expedition cruises are hot this year. Alan and Donna love adventure so they hit up both Antarctica and the Arctic a few years ago. If you’re considering an expedition cruise, take a look at Cruise Critic tips for choosing the right one for you.
