Welcome to this edition of News for the Week—a look at boomer travel ideas, news and deals.
How was your Thanksgiving? Alan and I enjoyed a quiet, relaxing but oh-so-tasty day in Montana. And now it’s time for the crazy shopping season to begin. If you’ve clicked through any of our affiliate links, thank you! It is so helpful to us.
The day before Thanksgiving, Alan and I drove almost 100 scenic miles for breakfast at The Crossings Bar & Grill in Wisdom, Montana. On the way back, we stopped at Chief Joseph Cross Country Ski Area for some snowshoeing. As you can see from the photo, it was an outstanding day.
I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving celebration! Here in Spain, the day usual goes by without me noticing, but I do try to do a little celebration. This year? A paella lunch and a few glasses of red wine did the trip.
Of course, without the hustle and bustle of Turkey Day, I move right on into Christmas. I came across this article and its giving me major Itchy Travel Feet: 10 Beautiful European Cities Put On The Best Christmas Markets. It was the photo of Helsinki that really got me.
