At the tail end of the baby boomer madness us over 50’s are seeking ways to travel that won’t break the bank but allow us to enjoy travel in a meaningful way. We discovered house sitting and we are currently in Europe and planning on exploring house sitting internationally for the next few years.
We are house sitting boomers and serial expats who sold everything we own and now travel with a carry on each. As boomer travelers and house sitters 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 house sitters we focus on European adventures and we hope to eventually choose a place to call home. We have been house sitting in Mexico, Spain, Cyprus, Ireland and the UK and hope to further explore house sitting in Europe with adventures in France, Portugal and Italy
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.
Do you want to move to a different country?
We lived in Mexico for a year on the Yucatan Peninsula – you can too, here are some great articles on doing just that.
and there’s plenty more information on Mexico here
How about Ireland? Do you have grandparents born in the EU? You can live virtually anywhere in Europe if you can get a passport for the EU via your grandparents – did you know that? Currently we are living in Ireland and loving every minute of it.
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 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 house sitting and travelling and we are passionate about sharing the places, destinations and experiences that mean so much to us.
