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 and we hope to introduce folks to fantastic food, places, people and beautiful areas that they may never have discovered on a traditional vacation.
On XYUandBEYOND we explore the places we are privileged to live in and write about them on our blog if your audience is mature travellers like us or simply people who feel the need to travel the world feel free to come and work with us.
My 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. We discovered house sitting and we are currently in Europe and planning on exploring house sitting internationally for the next few years. Not only does this appeal to us older folks, but we are finding that many millennials on a budget are fascinated by the potential to explore the world and not camp.
We are not millennials we are ass end boomers, mature travellers and 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. Well, we worked our asses off to retire and sold everything we own LOL so not just lucky.
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.
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.
