Favorites and Still to Do

The world is filled with such variety that is impossible to see it all. We each have to choose what’s important to us -what resonates with our interests. And what is within our reach – financially and physically. We know how fortunate we are to be able to enjoy active, (occasionally) luxury travel as we enter retirement years.

This is our list of ‘favorites’ and ‘still to dos’. Your list will be different.
