5 January – Planning Adventures for 2014

Well here we are in 2014 and my thoughts turn to travels.  I have thought about touring around South America on backpacker buses, but something keeps putting me off.  Perhaps it’s the very long distances across huge countries or that it can be quite a dangerous place for a woman traveling alone.  I’m not sure that I’m particularly drawn to the Inca Trail or Machu Picchu…. bound to be overrun with tourists.

However, there are places in Europe that I long to visit and I have now found what looks like the perfect solution… “Busabout”,  they provide alternative routes around Europe to choose from and I am looking at the South Loop which includes the cities of Ancona, Florence, Venice, Lauterbrunnen, Lucerne, La Spezia, Munich, Siena, Rome and Nice.  Some of these I have already visited but certainly wouldn’t mind returning to, especially Rome.  But I am so looking forward to Venice, an artist’s paradise or so I’m told.

Hey, last night I caught up on line with an old traveling buddy from my West Canada adventure last year, and she has invited me to visit her home in Switzerland.  This is just amazing… not only a beautiful country I have longed to visit but it seems I shall be seeing some of it from horseback… my favourite mode of transport for viewing nature away from tourists.  Her Dad owns a horse ranch!!  I must check out Engadine which is near St Moritz.   ….I just did and Wow!!!

More soon……. 🙂
