Well, Duh!

Of course!  Traveling is one of the best things that I have ever done for myself.  Between my trips to Disney every January and my cruises at other times of the year (a four day Bahamas cruise after Easter and a longer, usually transatlantic in the fall) I find myself refreshed and relaxed.

As a matter of fact, I have already done the online check-in for my April cruise to the Bahamas and am presently planning my shore excursions and on board activities for my transatlantic in November.

Knowing that I have these kinds of breaks coming helps me to get through the stress of the rest of my life.  When I was younger, I could go, go, go and never worry about getting away.  Now, I need to get away in order to be able to do the work required of me.

I look forward to the day when I can retire and travel even more.  There will be extended periods of time — I guarantee it — that you will not see me.  Some of my bucket list?  Well, let’s see.  A cross-country train trip with a sleeper car, a river cruise on the Mississippi, and a world cruise, to name a few.  Oh, yes.  And a cruise to the Norwegian Fjords during the highest point for the Northern Lights.  Must not forget that.

If you do not do it, give it a try.  Travel!

  1. My husband, Frank, died 32 years ago on February 2. After a time, I began to travel. (I’ve been on all 7 continents.) My traveling partner was Audrey Seberger (she has since died), and her husband died 4 months before Frank… but we both knew we liked traveling. So I do agree with you… traveling does wonders! But I’m too old now, and my traveling partner has died. Besides, the only places I haven’t been are too dangerous to go to now. But I’m available if you should need to ask questions. (Don’t retire too soon!)
