For the past decade or so, Mary Lou and I have enjoyed traveling the world with my college roommate and his wife, Bill and Pam. Bill and I are blessed that our spouses get along so well and we make great travel companions.

One of the challenges of traveling every year is that you have to choose where your next trip will be. Tonight, we sat down to plan where we would travel in 2025. It is not as easy as it sounds.

First, we are at the age where our grandchildren are involved in every sport imaginable. We want to be supportive and present when we can, but that limits travel time. In addition, we try to plan a trip with our children and grandchildren as well. There are only so many weeks in a year.

We all want to go to Australia and New Zealand at some point. However, it's a long drive both ways and once you arrive there's a lot to see. Australia is like visiting the United States and if you travel that far, you want to visit New Zealand too. With so many factors in such a long journey, we decided to postpone that adventure until 2026.

Bill has a brother who lives in Scotland, which lends weight to a trip that includes that country. We also have a friend in Portugal whom we have never visited. We have an interest in traveling to Iceland and even Greenland. After traveling below the Antarctic Circle near the bottom of our planet last year, we have a renewed interest in going above the Arctic Circle at the top of the world.

We have yet to visit Africa and still have a desire to go to the Middle East, although this may be a challenging time for that trip. Southeast Asia is on our bucket list, and I personally would like to travel to Japan. The problem with bucket lists is that the bucket can get quite large.

Once you've narrowed down where you want to go, there's still a lot of work to do. With so many cruise lines and tour groups available, the choices for visiting a country are vast. Do you sail by boat, travel by bus or train, or drive your own car? Do you go with a group or hire a private guide?

Part of the excitement of travel is planning where to go, how to get there, and where to stay once you arrive. Every trip is unique and creates its own memories. Every place we've visited has offered new experiences that only fuel the desire to travel more.

By the end of the evening, we felt like we had explored the world again. While we don't know exactly where we're going yet, we've narrowed down the search and begun the process of planning our trip.

Our world is incredibly diverse and the opportunity to explore places different from our own is incredibly rewarding. We are nearing the end of the Go-Go years of retirement. Wish us luck as we seek to determine where we are going in the world.
