Welcome to this edition of News for the Week—a look at boomer travel ideas, news and deals.
Hello from Denver, no wait, am I in Boston? Seriously, I’m on a plane flying to Denver. I’ve just spent the last two days at TravelCon 2019 where I was a panelist on the Boomer Travel Blogging panel.
Did I meet you at the conference (or not)? Be sure to say hi and ask to receive my list of resources that I use to power My Itchy Travel Feet.
And don’t miss the $30 discount that the folks at Tailwind gave me to share with conference attendees (and you). It’s the best tool for improving Pinterest performance. Love those Tailwind Tribes!
Where will you be on the 4th of July? Alan and I are celebrating our country’s birth in the Colorado mountains with our good friends, Rich and Sue (we met them on a cruise). I’ll be on the lookout for Colorado travel tips to share with you.
While Donna is at her travel conference, we’re still discussing wonderful road trips. Do you have any favorite road trip itinerary? One of my all-time favorite road trips was when my husband and I drove from Bordeaux to Normandy and then down back to Bordeaux through the Loire Valley. The scenery was really out of this world, and we stopped at some incredible little villages such as Saint Malo, Dinan, Bayeux, etc. It was incredible!
