As most of my readers know, we love traveling during the shoulder season. Fewer crowds, cheaper car rentals, and more choices in hotels are just a few reasons why we love visiting famous tourist destinations. This past fall, we visited Yellowstone National Park and stayed at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge and Cabins.
Palm Springs is known for its Desert Resorts, Coachella, and Son Bono. Hollywood stars and socialites from Los Angeles travel two hours to soak in the desert sun and splash in hotel pool parties. But what if you wanted to do something different than the same ole Palm Springs Scene? What if you wanted to go on a road trip to visit something so unique and strange you wouldn’t think you were in America anymore. That is where the Salton Sea and Salvation Mountain comes into play.
The final day of the cruise was an interesting one. After four days full of excursions at Endicott, Skagway, Juneau, and Ketchikan, we finally had some downtime to enjoy the ship on our own. We were a little exhausted from my days full of activities, so this Sunday at Sea was a more relaxing one.
Earlier this week, mom and I boarded a plane to Atlanta, so we could drive to Nashville to watch the Great American Eclipse in Clarksville, Tennessee. Having never seen an eclipse, the last one was February 26, 1979, and the fact that August 21 is my mother’s birthday, we thought this would be the best way to celebrate!
Three months ago I wrote a blog post about the top 25 tips for preparing for an Alaskan Cruise. I wrote this blog post based off of things I read on other blog posts, message board, and talking with friends. A few days after posting my tips, I boarded the Disney Wonder in Vancouver, Canada for a trip of a lifetime.
