From Donna:

Alan and I are staying put this Thanksgiving holiday. While we’ll miss seeing family, we won’t miss traveling on the busiest travel days of the year.

If you’re just about to head out the door, read our Holiday Travel Tips, first. And when Alan and I sit down to our turkey dinner, we’ll be sharing reasons why we’re thankful for travel. How about you? What are you thankful for in 2018?

Happy Thanksgiving!

From Nicole:

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of hiking around two beautiful chestnut and oak forests just an hour outside of Madrid. We were there with a group, led by a mycologist, to hunt for mushrooms. Unfortunately, we were experts at finding the inedible ones, but it was still loads of fun.

If you’re around Madrid this time of year, I highly recommend an excursion to El Tiemblo en Avila. It’s right at the foothills of the Sierra de Gredos mountain range and it is stunning this time of year!
