Some Personal Travel Links
This list is not meant to be some kind of boasting or ego-trip. Read about some of the wonderful places we’ve visited, and maybe you’ll get some ideas for your own future travels. Our travel philosophy is simple: Don’t wait, do it now.
This website now has a lot of general travel and photography information. Philip’s various travels are detailed here. He is a very good writer and observer, as well as an accomplished photographer. Following his advice, I’m posting as many of our travel photos as I can on our personal website.
We were clued in on this website, during a world cruise. While discussing rail travel, a kind gentleman suggested this site. We always consult this site before considering any rail travel.
Some Commercial Travel Links
This site has great discussion boards about cruising. We’ve posted here many times, and learned a lot about cruising and cruise lines. The “roll calls” (must register to view) are great, and you get to meet your fellow travelers before getting on board. Our handle is “bobnsandi”.
We’ve taken many cruises since our first serious cruise on the Star Clipper. This cruise line is special, and highly recommended.
At the time of our first cruise on this line, we had given up on cruising due some bad experiences. Our enjoyment of this trip helped convince us to return to cruising.
Food and Drink
Dining is certainly part of travel, and these folks have done a great job covering the subject. (And, their home cooking recipes are well worth checking out.)
We’ve been using these guides for many years, checking out wonderful eating and drinking opportunities in the U. S.
Travel (and Retirement) Blogs
A story of escape from the corporate world and traveling the world. A woman, alone. Uplifting and inspiring.
