September-October 2022 | 34 days

On our first trip to Great Britain we hit many of the typical highlights and  focused more on cities and towns. This trip was more about walking and nature; villages and small towns. (And castles.) We balanced that with a week of more cultural and entertainment pursuits in London. Since we’d seen highlights the first time we could relax and take in more specialized options. We’re finding that’s one of the nice things about revisiting a place: We feel less compelled to check must-sees off a list and more freedom to just be there.

We finally got to take our trip to Spain that was cancelled due to COVID the day before we were supposed to leave in March 2020. So a two year delay. We loved the architecture, which was our main theme. So much of it and so interesting.

Costa Rica Coast-to-Coast

COVID-19 was still disrupting travel plans and causing stress so we decided to return to a country we’ve been to before that was open to travelers. We may have found our ideal Costa Rica itinerary: wildlife viewing sandwiched in between beach time.

Greece: Cyclades and Rhodes

This was our second trip to Greece. We hit Rhodes first before heading and our favorite beach town (Perissa) for a relaxing end to our trip, with some of the less commonly visited Cyclades Islands in between. It was a great mix of the old buildings, charming villages, beaches, and walking.

Natchez Trace and the Gulf

When COVID-19 forced us to postpone our trip to Spain for another year we took the opportunity to drive the Natchez Trace Parkway, a road trip we’ve been wanting to do. We combined that with a couple of weeks along the Gulf of Mexico for some beach time and long walks in nice weather.
