We are boomers who sold everything we own and now travel with a carry on each. As boomer travelers and housesitters we travel the world on a retirement budget, with the occasional splurge and we hope to introduce folks to fantastic food, places, people and beautiful areas that they may never have discovered on a traditional vacation.
Traveling as boomers and housesitters we focus on European adventures and we hope to eventually choose a place to call home. We have spent a considerable amount of time exploring Mexico, Ireland, Spain and a few other countries seeking our forever home.
We are not millenials we are ass end baby boomers, lucky enough to retire in our mid-50’s we don’t have a bottomless pension but we choose to spend our money on travel and experiences.
We 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.
On XYUandBEYOND we explore the places we are privileged to live in and write about them on our blog, if your audience is boomers like us feel free to come and work with us.
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 aging factor), and curious travelers.
We also write about the practicalities of choosing a place to retire to. We are lucky enough to have Irish and Canadian citizenship and we show you how to get an EU passport if you have EU Ancestors. Or how to retire to areas like the UK, Mexico and Ireland if you want to live in another country.
We like to say that our kids wouldn’t run away from home so we did.
We are often called “brave” for taking the leap and getting out of the consumer culture we were living in. We sold everything and we miss nothing about our “stuff”. Our readers and followers are our inspiration, we truly love to share information about housesitting and travelling and we are passionate about sharing the places, destinations and experiences that mean so much to us.
