It’s been more of a Road Hiatus, and I apologize.  In late October, we went to Germany to visit friends and see the countryside.  I don’t like to advertise my absence when I’m away from home, and, quite frankly, I was having a great time and didn’t want to miss one great conversation or good meal…we don’t see our friends very often.  After that, it was time to head out to Indiana for Thanksgiving.  Repeat above disclaimer about friends, food and conversation.

Since that time, I’ve been working toward one of my personal professional goals, namely, landing a writing job with About.com.  It’s taken a couple of attempts, but I’m finishing my second week as About.com’s Guide to Senior / Baby Boomer Travel, and so far I am loving every minute.  I love travel planning almost as much as I love travel itself, and this is an ideal writing opportunity for me.  Please stop by my About.com site if you have time!

I’ll try to catch up on some of our road trip news.  Meanwhile, if you like wine travel, you can read about my trip along the German Wine Road here.
