From Donna:

I should just copy my greeting from last week because it’s the same: a busy work week and continued health maintenance. But we’re seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Hoping for an ATV ride in the forest today. It’s been a beautiful weather week in Montana.

Starting, of course, with my beautiful Spain, a Road Trip through the Lower Rias is an unforgettable experience. Of course when we’re talking about European road trips, featured writer Debi Lander has given us some great ideas such as Tips for a Champagne Country Road Trip or a Boomer Road Trip Adventure through Greece, and she also told us how she went Conquering Castles and Countryside on a Scotland Road Trip.
