Did you know I now have a video channel? It in the early stages, but you can find me sharing Baby Boomer Adventures on YouTube as Alison Abbott. I’d love for you to take a peek and let me know your thoughts. Learning the ins and outs for this baby boomer filled with wanderlust is always a challenge, but one that I love. Video is another outlet for my creativity. Sharing travel experiences in as many ways as possible allows me to give you a deeper look into a destination.
All of the films are under two minutes, giving a short overview of experiences. In addition, the first group all center around cruises. I guess I was on the water quite a bit in the last year.
Culinary tourism has exploded in recent years and there is no denying the connection between the pleasure of eating and learning about a country’s customs or connecting over a meal. I like to scratch beneath the surface of a culture by visiting markets, tasting what’s grown in the region and breaking bread, or in this case dumplings, with a local resident. The Muslim Market in Xi’an took me way beyond the Terra Cotta Warriors when I traveled to China in this video on a Viking River Cruise.

Then there was a wonderful trip this summer in Rockland Maine. Have you ever been on a windjammer? If you want to unplug and recharge while cruising along the gorgeous Maine coast, this is a trip for you! The entire experience was awesome, especially the food. Be on the lookout for another video piece coming about the amazing meals Chef Annie could create in her postage stamp kitchen on a wood burning stove on the WOODEN sailboat J&E Riggin.
Finally, I had the lovely opportunity to sail on a romantic cruise along the Rhine River with my husband as we started down the road to our 40th, yes 4oth wedding anniversary. We are planning to experience forty new adventures this year and are well on our way. We’ll finish off the first 20 this January in Hawaii, so make sure to stay tuned.
