Travel Favorites and Still to Do (to-do and ta-dah!)

“Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.”

Max Ehrmann, Desiderata

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’ve been fortunate to be able to enjoy active, (occasionally) luxury travel as we enter retirement years but there are still a few items on our travel bucket list.

Somehow our “to-do” keeps growing, so I like to reflect back on all the special adventures we’ve already had. Our “ta-da!” list.

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