About More Time To Travel

Thanks for visiting More Time To Travel. This site is designed to provide advice, information and inspiration for travelers who have reached their midlife milestone birthday and, like me, probably have sighed and said, “I can’t believe how quickly time has passed.”

At this time of life, it’s common for careers, interests, friendships, and caregiving responsibilities (for children, grandchildren and parents) to change in nature and intensity. Suddenly, there’s more time to travel, along with a wanderlust for exploring different places, savoring new tastes, and immersing ourselves in other cultures.

While the content you’ll find here 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. 

More Time To Travel  was named one of the best boomer travel blogs by FlipKey (a TripAdvisor-branded rental vacation site) as well as one of the best baby boomer travel blogs by Discover Corps, a grassroots travel company that organizes volunteer excursions.

This award-winning 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 I’ve honed my powers of observation, skills in relating to people, and ability to synthesize information over the years.

I’ve been thoroughly enthralled by my “second act” as a freelance travel writer and guide, and hope you’ll enjoy taking this journey with me.
