Alan and Donna visited the French island of Corsica on a Med cruise excursion, but would love to go back to explore this beautiful area by car.

From Donna:

How do you like our new intro video? Does it make you want to read our articles and then plan a trip? Let me know.

Alan and I have been enjoying Montana’s beautiful fall weather. We finally got in a hike. Big Creek Trail is a soothing walk in the woods without much elevation gain, at least for the 2 miles (4 miles-round-trip) that we hiked on the trail.

Big Creek Trail is in Montana’s Bitterroot Valley. We love this quiet walk in the woods.

From Nicole:

Happy weekend, everyone! I had a wonderful time in Italy last weekend. The wedding was in Tropea, a small coastal village in the Calabria region. It was such a beautiful area. So beautiful that I was kicking myself for not staying longer.

The church of Santa Maria dell’Isola is one of Tropea’s most beloved sites.

I’d love to go back and take a slow road trip through this part of the country. Alan and Donna’s road trip to Southern Italy really inspired me, but to be there in person is really something!
