My husband and I have always made it a point to travel whenever we can. Even before we first drove across the country together in 1972, we each savored any visit to a new place. We have always encouraged our kids to travel, and have trekked kids all over California, to Mexico, around Upstate New York and Ontario, Canada, and various other spots – and sent them on trips through school or church whenever they were available.
Since our nest has been empty, we’ve been to three Olympics – two to places where we had close friends, and one with a tour group. We’ve also done “pampered” stints, penny-pinching trips, and some with a little of each. Some of our trips have been overseas, and some in the US. All of them were more than we expected.

One thing we know for sure is that there’s still so much we want to see. Any Travelogue posted on this site was undertaken in our fifties or later, and we will continue to travel – and post about it – as long as we’re able.
I hope you’ll enjoy our journeys, and that you may be inspired to visit some of these spots yourselves – you’re never too old to discover someplace new!
