Where to Next?

I am often asked this question… “Where am I going next?”  And of course I usually do have something on the calendar.  Most often like you, it is to visit family.  I may add a bit of something on the visit, but family consumes most of our travel.  And that is just fine but what about the rest of our lives?  What do we do for adventure, excitement, education and motivation just to name a few?

I get about 100 emails a day telling me of how wonderful this or that place is!  And they all sound so very interesting.  River boat cruising is clearly still very hot.  The Rhine, Rhone and Danube in Europe of course are at the top of the list, but there are now river boat cruises most everywhere there is a river; on the Irrawaddy in Myanmar, Mekong in Vietnam and the Yangtze in China.  Or go to the end of the world and cruise the tip of South America.  I would like to cruise to the Galapagos Island or the Tahitian or Fiji Islands!  I would never come home again!

Some emails I get are for budget travel and others for luxury.  Many are places I know about, like the Adare Manor in Ireland that I just received, but some others are from very unknown places: Asia’s most remarkable landscapes, beginning on the rugged coast of Vietnam and moving on to the spiritual city of Luang Prabang, the ancient ruins of Angkor Wat, a private island in the Sulu Sea, and finally to the buzzing Japanese capital of Tokyo.  Can you imagine?

Some emails are packages with air, hotel and tours while other emails are the airlines or the hotels/resorts telling me why to choose them.  Everyday my brain travels the world to wonderful places.  If you thought about a place, you can go there.  We just need to figure it all out!

Where are you going next?  What is on your calendar for this summer or fall?  Or for that matter, what about next week?  Having something to look forward to experiencing or fond memories of the most recent experience keeps our spirits high!
