When you hear about travel and leisure vacations what thought or imagination gets into your head? OK so Kenya isn’t the great adventure it once was; it’s still pretty adventurous. The adrenaline levels for this trip can be bumped up a notch through a hot air balloon ride. Bump up the adrenaline even more and plan to go during the great migration in the dry season where millions of African migratory animals begin the move towards water. Check with a destination specialist to arrange for this experience. Want more adventure? Try a guided camping safari in the bush. After loading up we headed for Port Pirie some 230 Km’s away. This coastal town sits between The Spencer Gulf and The Flinders Ranges. This is a very beautiful place to visit. But I’ll give you some stats on what roads are like. The whole Region has 1226 km’s of roads. Of which only 280 Km’s are sealed. And these figures were produced in 2009. Back in 1969, that would have been more like 20 Km’s sealed.

The only drawback with these companies is if you are looking for a senior trip with solidarity, look somewhere else. Although these adventure-focused travel companies understand the needs of the solo traveler, the accommodations aren’t so accommodating. When on one of Intrepid Travel or Adventure Women’s trips, you are paired with a roommate. Keep in mind, there is still no single supplement charge for these senior trips, but you won’t be sleeping travel insurance alone. Keep an open mind and take advantage of this opportunity to meet a new person and have a travel buddy on your vacation. A Mediterranean cruise is a dream honeymoon for many a couple, but many couples simply assume that such a dream is beyond their means. It is easy to see why people think this, especially since the cost of the wedding itself today is so high. Many couples feel there is simply not enough money left for a great honeymoon.

Six years ago, I met Bonnie and Cheryl at Gunflint, when my hiking partner and I decided to paddle part of our intended route rather than risk getting lost on the remote, unmarked and often obscure Border Route Trail These two knowledgeable, capable women were very helpful in outfitting us for our canoe trip, obtaining the last-minute permit, providing us with maps for our route, and picking up the canoe (along with a surprise delivery of fresh strawberries) when we left the water a week later to hike the well-maintained Superior Trail I thoroughly enjoyed the paddling and portaging and knew I’d eventually return for more. The original building that now houses the St. Regis Florence was designed in 1432 by Filippo Brunelleschi, famed for his design of the dome of the city’s Duomo. Today, it brims with Murano-glass chandeliers and 16th-century frescoes, and it offers guests spectacular views of the Arno River.
