January 2015 Travel Tips and Tales Newsletter

Welcome to a New Year and More Exciting Travel Possibilities!

Greetings!

Where in the world will your travels take you in 2015? We’re putting together our list of top travel destinations for this year to cover, but we’d love your input as to where you want us to visit. So send us an email or tell us on Facebook, and we’ll do our best to add your requests to our itinerary.

Looking back on 2014, it was definitely an exciting year and we checked-off many of our travel bucket list experiences. How about you? What did you do that was on your bucket list?

WJs 2014 IN REVIEW:

  • Back in the USA we did a 26-day, 5,634 mile (9,067 km) Southwest roadtrip through Oregon, Nevada, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Texas.
  • Fall travel started with a 49-day Holland America Line cruise from The Netherlands to South Africa – crossing 13,241 nautical miles, taking us to 16 countries or territories, and 23 towns or cities.
  • Down in the Southern Hemisphere in November, we spent a couple of weeks living in style to celebrate Viv’s 50th in South Africa. That was beyond an epic adventure!
  • December found us in Europe to join Viking River Cruises for their 2nd annual #VikingSocial cruise – Romantic Danube – from Nuremberg, Germany to Budapest, Hungary. We have lots to write about that cruise, but don’t wait… book one of their river cruises now – we know you’ll love it, too!
  • We also visited a number of Christmas Markets in Germany, Austria and Hungary, they were so much fun. The Nuremberg Christmas Market was definitely our favorite and one we highly recommend visiting for a few days.
  • Our year wound down with some relaxation in the south of Spain – in Marbella along the Costa del Sol. We found a really sweet apartment in a fantastic location near both the beach and the Old Town. The Spanish certainly know how to celebrate the festive season and ring in a new year!

We still have lots of tips and tales from our last few months of adventures to share with you, so stay tuned for updates. In the meantime, don’t forget to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Flickr, where we share fun travel photos, deals, tales and tips on a daily basis.

Until next month…  Happy Travels!
