Glacier National Park is a gem of our national park system. Alan and Donna have spent a lot of time exploring this beautiful area. Needs some inspiration? Check out their Glacier National Park Photo Essay.

From Donna:

We’re on the Oregon coast where it’s been raining, raining, raining. But I found three sand dollars!  Hope to have more adventures to share with you next week—if it doesn’t rain.

Is the Galapagos on your bucket list? It’s certainly on mine and Alan’s. Did you know that Silversea is launching a purpose-built ship for the Galapagos Islands in the summer of 2020? Take a look at the gorgeous Silver Origin. Wowzer! I’m signing up for this one!

From Nicole:

Well, I’m off this week folks to enjoy some back-to-nature time with the family. It’s Easter holiday next week and we’re headed to the mountains near Avila.

Not only is Avila well-known for its beautiful natural scenery of expansive mountains and large lakes, but I hear the Easter processions in this area are really something special. When I get back, I’ll tell you all about it! In the meantime, check out my favorite off-the-beaten-path destinations in Spain.
