It’s Friday as I write this. Tomorrow Alan and I return to Montana after a summer at the beach and a “kind of” blog vacation for me. Of course Alan’s been packed for a day or two. Me? Not so much. So I’ll make this note short and sweet. Have a great week of travel fun and I’ll see you next week.
Well, the searing hot months of summer are almost behind us and you know what that means, don’t you? Fabulous Fall Road trips! European road trips, that is! This month, we’ll be taking you through some of our favorite road adventures in the old continent. If you’re planning a trip to Europe this fall, take a look at some of our road trip ideas:
- We love Italy and both of Alan and Donna’s boomer road trips to northern Italy and southern Italy were incredible.
- Don’t forget about Spain’s great road trips, such as my trip through the Lower Rias.
- Road trips are great, but they can also be a bit stressful. Make sure to check out a few of our favorite European Travel Apps to help you next trip run as smooth as possible.
