I met my husband 50 years ago this month and it was love at first sight. We still have a love that is so strong. I would love to celebrate these 50 years by going on a scenic train ride in Colorado since we can't get around very well anymore.

This sounds wonderful. I'd love to take a train ride. Love at first sight and still going strong after 50 years! Wow. You are blessed. I would love to meet my special mate and spend the rest of my life in a loving relationship. I see you on the train taking that scenic ride through Colorado - smiling, laughing, holding hands and just having big fun. 50 years, that's a wonderful thing.

I would like to visit my sister in Montreal, and have not seen her in years.  She is getting old, and is not healthy.  I already lost one, and did not get a chance to see her.

I want/need to visit New Zealand. I have relatives there that I haven't seen since the 1960s. US travel restrictions to NZ have finally been lifted and you can't find a better place to visit. Everything from the beaches to the mountains to the people is great...once you have been there you will love it.

Five friends and I just returned from a trip to Spain and Portugal and four of that group will visit San Jose del Cabo in January 2023. I plan to use AARP Rewards in March 2023 while visiting Ireland with my husband and sister-in-law. We're so glad to be "On the Road Again"!

We began our back to traveling by heading to Las Vegas in January to celebrate my 70th birthday.  What a fun time we had riding the zipline on Fremont Street at 2:00 in the morning as well as checking out the pinball machine museum during the day.  I have used Rewards for everything from gift cards to gas cards for my granddaughter!

My daughter married and moved with her husband to Canada just months before COVID closed the Canadian border border. Over two years now, we want to travel to Canada to visit them and see their life. We are looking at AARP’s flight and car rental services, as well as gas, restaurant and miscellaneous gift cards to use (depends on whether we drive or fly and what can be used in Canada)!

We just finished up our trip to Tennessee and are now planning our next trip to Florida Keys. Our last stay at Islamorada was amazing. We could see 20 ft below the water to the starfish crawling on the bottom as well as a huge sting ray gracefully swimming under our canoes.

My children and I are traveling to Pennsylvania to stay in an AirBnb Cottage, which is located next to a large creek.  I purchased a kayak for my son as a Christmas present and he's eager to get out on the water.  He's also an avid fisherman, so the location suits us perfectly.  AARP has discounted AirBnb gift cards available, which allows us to spend more vacation time together.  In addition, we're looking into the possibility of renting a car utilizing AARP's resources.  I plan on using rewards points for vacation activities, and AARP makes it possible to redeem points quickly and easily, once we've made definitive plans. I'll definitely be watching for AARP member discount/double points days at Exxon, as I linked my accounts long ago to take advantage of this valuable perk.  Overall, the discounts and resources available to me, as an AARP member, allow me to spend less money and more time doing the things I love most with my family, and we can't wait to get back on the road this summer!
