Today, Alan and I disembark the Silver Wind for our long journey back to Montana. Visiting the Selinunte archaeological site near Trapani, Sardinia, has definitely been the highlight of the week. Did you see our Instagram photo?
Magical travel moments can’t be planned, they just happen. My Silversea cruise excursion to the ruins at Selinunte on Sicily certainly qualifies. My advice: go in spring when the wildflowers are blooming. The hour-long drive from Trapani was definitely worth it. #silverseacruise #babyboomertravel #selinunte
And, as always happens to us on a long cruise, Alan and I spent the last couple of days talking about how we’d like to change things up after returning home. There’s nothing like getting away on a trip to bring ruts, bad habits and routine into focus. So we’re planning more boomer adventures like hiking, ATV rides, four-wheel-drive trips and exploring our Montana neighborhood in place of all that time we spend behind a computer. And then there’s the matter of eating healthier and exercise. Stay tuned to see how it all works out.
