Good morning! I wanted to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.
Sorry I've been off the boards a bit recently, am TDY in the States and I haven't had time to check in to say hello.
Good luck in deciding where your next big trip will be. Myself, I've always wanted to go on one long road trip across the States, just hit the road and explore. And as others have advised, I'd hold off on any major decisions for a little while (like selling your home,) but yes, it's good to de-junk, clear out the house, it kind of goes hand in hand with the primal way of life anyway. Getting back to the simple pleasures in life!
As for trips, I really enjoyed my hikes in the Alps this past summer, you can arrange to go on a hut to hut hike (they huts can either be rough, or as nice as a B&B, they have food and beds, so you don't end up carrying much.), or you can stay in one B&B and hike all over one valley. Myself, I ended up staying in Soeldon Sölden - official Website, they have several trams in the area, you can either hike up or tram up and then hike all day around the area. It's fabulous.
This is where I stayed, if you email them you can get a better rate than if you go through booking.com. Hotel Maria Theresia tztal Tirol
Well, I'm off to the store, I burnt my cranberries last night when trying to make a sauce (dang stove that I'm not used to cooking on....) need to go buy more before the day gets away from me.
My thoughts are with you.
