One of our favorite ways to do boomer travel right is by road trip! Check out Donna and Alan’s visit to Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, which included hiking, adventuresome drives and tons of beautiful desert scenery.

From Donna:

Want to know a behind-the-scenes secret? I’m working on a total redesign of My Itchy Travel Feet. It probably won’t be complete until sometime in January, but you’re going to love this colorful, energetic take on active travel for baby boomers. It’s also why I’m a littler quieter than usual on our social media channels and why there are fewer new travel articles from me.

Penguins on shore in Antarctica

An Antarctica cruise was a dream come true travel experience for Alan and Donna.

Would you like to cruise in Antarctica but can’t handle the potential rough seas on a Drake Crossing? Starting December 2021, Silversea will be offering the Antarctica Bridge. Fly business class from Punta Arenas, Chile on a Silversea private charter to King George Island to board your Silversea expedition ship.
