News for the Week


Our Christmas tree has a snowy view this year.

From Donna:

Merry Christmas from Montana! It’s snowing gangbusters this Christmas Eve so our plans to attend Christmas Eve services followed by a delicious dinner at The Catered Table in Stevensville might or might not happen. But that’s okay, even though it’s just Alan and me this holiday, the halls are decked, the fridge is stocked with our favorite foods and there’s enough Christmas cheer to keep us warm. We wish all of you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday and Safe Travels.

Nicole and I will be taking next week off. But we won’t leave you without travel adventures to read. The next News for the Week will feature some of our favorite travel stories so read on. And the same goes for the Weekly Broadcast. See you in January 2017 with new travel adventures to share.

Christmas in Madrid

Merry Christmas from Madrid!

From Nicole:

Merry Christmas Eve, everyone! I hope you’re all having a nice holiday weekend! I’ll be dining with my inlaws in Segovia this weekend. The dinner of ham, seafood, shellfish, and meat (lots of meat!) lasts for hours and hours and the food never seems to stop. When it does, it’s dessert and coffee time and then, BINGO with the family. Hopefully, the pueblo will have a bonfire this year and I can brush up on my Spanish language Christmas Carols.
