News for the Week


From Donna:

I can’t talk about travel this week without, first, sending sympathies to the people of France. And if  the Nice terrorist attack has increased your travel anxiety, read How to Travel Safely During a Crisis before canceling your trip.

Are you a cyclist? Alan and I are really excited about the completion of the Bitterroot Bike Trail in our corner of Montana. The 50-mile trail runs from Missoula to Hamilton with some of the most beautiful scenery that you’ll see while riding a bike. And the Stevensville Hotel has opened a camping facility for bicyclists. Be sure to add the Bitterroot Bike Trail to your boomer bucket list.

From Nicole:

This month, we’ve been talking about cruise travel, but I have a confession to make: it’s been a good twenty years since I took my last cruise. Why? It’s not because I don’t want to cruise, it just that there is a frustrating number of choices. Countless possibilities in the form of destinations, cruise length, river or sea, cruise ship size, etc. make my head spin.

If you’re like me and need a little help to guide you in the right direction, take a look at our Luxury Cruise Travel Planning Guide to get your started. Also, you can’t go wrong with Cruise Critics’ Tips for First Time Cruisers and How to Choose a Cruise line.
