News for the Week



From Donna:

Our extended family has experienced a couple of medical emergencies this week. Watching our loved ones deal with them has reminded me of how important it is to be prepared when it comes to identification and insurance. When I’m hiking, on an active cruise excursion or enjoying a new travel adventure, I wear pants with a zippered pocket for carrying my drivers license, medicare card and supplemental insurance card. And if you have life-threatening medical conditions, I recommend wearing a medical ID bracelet. Being prepared is an important step on a boomer travel adventure.

From Nicole:

We’re talking Spain travel this month and if you’re planning a visit to the capital city Madrid, there are a lot of great options for day trips. Two of my favorite Spanish towns to visit on the weekends are Segovia and La Granja. But you can easily go to someplace a little more off-the-beaten-path like Chinchon. No matter what you choose, you’ll see some beautiful areas outside of the city!
