I am a sixty-something father of six who has traveled extensively in the contiguous United States during the years I was raising my family. Upon my retirement in 2021, I began exploring international destinations starting with Panama and Costa Rica. I initially used this site to log my travels for friends and family, but in 2022 I decided to repurpose this for a wider audience.

While researching my travels, I discovered many travel blogs that spotlighted the countries I am interested in exploring. However, most focus on the younger traveler and their interests and activities. Those sites were suitable for their entertainment value, and most were well written and contained much good generalized information. However, they lacked the perspective of an older but still active person.

The new purpose of this site is to:

  • The "Travel Blog" will still be where I document my travels both domestically in the USA and internationally. Hopefully, I will write to provide insightful information on my destinations. I will also be mindful to include other related destinations and activities that may appeal to other "seasoned" travelers.
  • Review products and services useful for older travelers under "Reviews." I will not offer recommendations, but rather my goal is to provide the pros and cons so that my readers can choose those that they feel best fit their own needs and budget. There will be affiliate links to many products or services, and if you decide to purchase those items, I may receive a commission but at no additional cost to you.
  • If you have any questions or suggestions for future travels, you can reach out to me under "Contact." Please allow 2-3 days for a response. I am often in places where I do not check my email daily.
