(1) Edinburgh Scotland and London, then a 2 week Baltic cruise.

(2) Eastern Canada.

(still trying to squeeze in a Fall trip, so not really thinking about 2020 yet )

Italy in the Spring. First time for both of us, so it should be interesting. We decided to take a guided tour, which will only be two weeks, so we're trying to decide what else to do before coming home. Probably Germany, since we're both very comfortable there.

So far just camping in the NW because we're not doing much traveling to save money for our travel extravaganza in 2021. I am, however, thinking of a trip with my DD to Chicago, where she wants to move in the next year or so. She really wants to work at Shedd Aquarium and continue doing stand up comedy in the evenings. I've only been to Chicago once, a decade ago, when she was graduating from Navy bootcamp, and we really didn't see much.

watch Chevy Chase European vacation?

What do you like to do/see/eat? Is there anything that you thought to see "one day"? Eiffel's Tower? The Vatican, The swiss Alps, The Northern Lights. Belgian waffles in Belgium, English high tea

I was talking to MIL tonight about my trip to France in April. She was quizzing me. Then she says maybe I'll talk to my sister about a trip....

It will never happen. But if it did it would involve Business class, passports, scooters & wheelchairs. MIL is 88. Sister has had knee trouble. But it would be fun to see MIL in Europe

Going back to the Netherlands and then maybe a short bike and barge trip through France, Luxembourg and Germany. Planning on taking a cruise through Norway or Great Britain and the Orkney and Shetland islands if I don't have to schedule a shoulder replacement before then.


Cheers!

We’ve enjoyed Lyon. Haven’t made it to Sicily yet.

Tuesday started to tuneup for a fall walking/hiking trip to the Dolomites in Italy. We did a 9 mile with 3000 ft. elevation gain that top out at 8000 ft. Six hours including lunch at the top and Jasper was good the whole time.

SoCal for wedding this spring, midwest in the summer for family reunion, Northeast coast, Canada and Niagra Falls in the fall. Possibly return to Hawaii late in the year.

Last year we spent 10 days in Barcelona, it is a great city to visit with lots to see. Also it is a jump off point for many cruise ships.
For many people 10 days might be too long.
So consider visiting Barcelona for a few days, then take a Mediterranean cruise from there.

The plan is to do the east coast in our truck and trailer next summer. We did a "Wild, Wild, West" trip this year. We will start in the Keys of Florida and work our way up North to Maine. We have found some ocean side campgrounds from various places. But any suggestions on campgrounds along the coast is welcome. We do have solar, so places with no hookups are OK.

On October 25, I posted that we'd just be camping this year. Things change. Going to do an 8 day walk in Alsace with friends in the spring, then go to the Dordogne for several days. In the fall, a couple invited us to go to NYC, then take the train to Montreal and spend some time roaming around eastern Canada. I want to see PEI while we're "in the neighborhood."

It's funny....many people love P.E.I. My late wife, (one of her brothers raved about it), and I went "Meh" when we visited in 1997.

DW was there in 1978 and also went "Meh".

We all preferred N.S. and N.B. - as DW says "P.E.I. is like the Prairies with water".

If I had limited time, I'd spend it in Cape Breton.

Yes, P.E.I is flat. There's a reason it is the potato growing region for Canada.
