WELCOME TO 50 SOMETHING TRAVEL!


Don't wait. Do it now!

Hi there! Is it an age thing? It seems like just when we turned 50, Jill and I caught a bad case of “travelitis”. How bad? Well, one year we did 4 overseas trips. We decided that was probably too much, but in the last few years we have been away well over 100 nights each year.

Living in Australia means that most destinations are a long journey, so getting the most out of each trip is often the goal.

Travellers enjoy talking with other travellers. From many such conversations we have to come realize that there is a great deal that we have learned about the art of travel that is news to many travellers. You see we love travelling and I love planning. Our friends love to rib me about my incredibly detailed itineraries but they are quick to pick up on the wealth of tips and experience we have to share.

And what better way to share widely than with a blog?

So what will you find here in this blog? Over time I’ll share all of the tips, tricks and experiences we have. We’ll share the joys of loads of countries and cities. And hopefully you’ll be inspired by a destination or you will pick up some new ideas to make you travels even better.

If you are looking for adventure travel, travelling on a shoestring, travelling with children, diaries of great night life in foreign cities or hidden gems that you will only find if you stay somewhere for several weeks, then this is not the blog for you.

We are 50 somethings who like our comforts and are out to see as much of the world as we can, while we can. And what a great world it is.

Read our travel philosophy. If it gels with who you are and where you are in life, then become a subscriber (use the form in the sidebar) and we'll send you periodic updates. Or, if you want to really keep up with us, like our Facebook page.
