More Time to Travel is a site that provides advice, information and inspiration for travelers who have reached their midlife milestone birthday and, like me, have probably sighed and said, at least once, “I can’t believe how quickly time has passed.”
At our time of life, it’s common for careers, interests and caregiving responsibilities (both for children and aging parents) to change in intensity or even diminish. Suddenly, there’s more time to travel, along with a wanderlust for doing something new or different, stimulating the senses, and/or experiencing other cultures.
While the content of this web site leans towards luxury experiences, boomers born of depression-era parents are always mindful of value. They try not to spend more than they have, or to spend more than they have to. But they’re interested in exploring new places, savoring new tastes, and nurturing their spirits.
This site reflects our own experiences as members of this cohort. Typically, my husband is my favored travel companion; he’s also a top-rate photographer whose pictures make my words come alive.
Of course, every traveler sees the world through his/her own lens. Since I’m trained as a psychologist I like to think that over the years I’ve honed my powers of observation, skills in relating to people, and ability to synthesize information. I am thoroughly enthralled by my “second act” as a freelance travel writer and guide, and hope you’ll enjoy taking this journey with me.
*More Time To Travel was named one of the best boomer travel blogs for 2015 by FlipKey (a TripAdvisor-branded rental vacation site) and was similarly recognized as one of the best baby boomer travel blogs by Discover Corps, a grassroots travel company that organizes volunteer excursions.
