If you tend to get stressed about traveling over the holidays, Donna has come up with a great list Holiday Travel Tips to Make Your Boomer Travel Hassle-Free.

From Donna:

Welcome to the last day of November. Can you believe it? And you can breathe a big sigh of relief because I’m mostly done sharing gift guides, Black Friday deals and showing you other buying opportunities.

If you’ve purchased through one of our links, thanks so much. It’s costly running a website like My Itchy Travel Feet. Your purchases through our affiliate links are a big help.

In December, we’re featuring our best travel tips and favorite articles from 2019. Keep up with My Itchy Travel Feet the easy way. Subscribe here.

From Nicole:

With Thanksgiving already behind us, are you starting to feel that overwhelming holiday stress? Don’t worry—it happens to the best of us. Thankfully, there’s online shopping for the gifts (you can find budget travel gifts ideas to luxury trinkets in the blink of an eye these days). Additionally, there are an infinite number of travel options to pamper yourself a little during the holidays.

I like to mix up a little family time (“little” is quite a lot when you have Spanish in-laws!) with a lot of “me time” over the Christmas holidays. What do you do to relax this time of year?
