As ass-end boomer travellers and what are considered “mature travellers” and house sitters we travel the world on a retirement budget, with the occasional splurge (well truth be told more than occasional as we do like the “good stuff”) and hope to introduce folks to fantastic food, places, people and beautiful areas that they may never have discovered on a traditional vacation.
On XYUandBEYOND hubs and I explore the places we are privileged to live in and I write about them on my website. If your audience are mature travellers or simply people who feel the need to travel the world feel free to come and work with me.
Hubs and I ran away from home over 5 years ago and haven’t looked back. We are “mature travellers”, which makes me laugh since we are the least “mature” people we know. It’s a sort of 50 is the “new black” or something like that.
At the tail end of the baby boomer madness, we over 50’s are seeking ways to travel that won’t break the bank but allow us to enjoy travel in a meaningful way. Not only does this appeal to us older folks, but we are finding that many GenX and millennials are fascinated by the potential to explore the world and not camp or backpack.
We do love a splurge as well, we have been very lucky and eaten at Michelin starred restaurants in Canada, USA, England, Ireland, Spain, Malta and more. We’ve been on cruises, weekend junkets that turned into weeks-long thanks to the weather. On our bucket list is all the regions of France, a gorgeous luxurious river cruise, slow travel through Italy. The list is pretty much endless.
I concentrate on destinations and experiences many in our age group desire: historic sites, beautiful gardens & parks, cities and cultural destinations, food and drink, active travel, and personal connections.
We also contribute practical information and resources to promote an easy-going travel lifestyle. In short, we provide content geared for mature (that can be debatable sometimes), active (well given the ageing factor), and curious travellers.
