Travel with Aging Parents hitting the one year mark this month! I was a bit nostalgic and rolled through all 131 blogs from the past year and identified my Top 9 posts. In no particular order:

  • Top 10 Reasons to Travel with your Aging Parents – The inspiration for why I started this blog!
  • Letting Go of Emotional Baggage – After 20+ years of traveling with my Mom, I still reread this post before we travel together. It’s hard to travel with anyone, let alone a family member. This post gives me inspiration that we’re gonna have a fabulous vacation!
  • Travel Resolutions for the New Year – I offer four easy goals to spice up your life through travel. Take a peek!
  • Chiang Mai, Thailand trip – Of all the trips I’ve taken with Mom, this vacation was one of my favorites. Between the elephant kissing mom, petting tigers or the fish pedicure, it was really a trip of firsts. Awesome time!

A baby elephant took a liking to Mom in Chiang Mai, Thailand! Definitely a highlight of the trip!

  • A Journey to Normandy – Deb Wood’s trip with her father and uncle to Normandy in remembrance of her uncle Frank, a paratrooper who participated in the D-Day landing (and died three weeks later) is incredible moving. Deb is an inspiration to me (and a reminder of why this blog is important).
  • Reviews of Ultraviolet (part 1 and part 2) – My favorite restaurant experience EVER. I still dream about that evening!
Ultaviolet by Chef Paul Pairet in Shanghai, China

The immersive restaurant experience at Ultraviolet is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced!
