Travel Barometer for 2015




Whenever a new season approaches, I'm often asked, "Where's your next adventure taking you?".  I just returned from the British Isles, and that was such a fantastic whirlwind of a trip that I'm just going to settle down for a few months.  Until late summer, that is! Then I'm off to Memphis again for some bonding time with my baby granddaughter, Presley.

Enough about my travels, though!  I want everyone who suffers from wanderlust to just declare they're going to find every way possible to go somewhere.  According to ASTA (American Society of Travel Agents) here are the top picks from a survey of 400 travel agencies.
