Welcome to this edition of News for the Week—a look at boomer travel ideas, news and deals.
I’ve had my nose to the writing grindstone this week so not much to report except that Montana is having gorgeous summer weather and I’m not getting out to play in it. Need to fix that! Hopefully I’ll have a fun adventure to tell you about next week.
And, I’m off to my yearly beach retreat in beautiful Mallorca. Normally, we just get there and hit the beach, ride bikes, rest, read, etc. But, I’m considering a visit the Caves of Drach this year. They look incredible!
