Deb walking in Venice Italy with all of my stuff: Eagle Creek Hauler and day pack.

This is me — with ALL of my stuff, walking in Venice.

Welcome. I created this site because so many people asked me to share my travels. Not just friends. Mostly women 45+ I’d only met in passing or online!  (How could I give up having a home, give away belongings, pack a backpack, and fly away to other countries with no plans!? Being over 50, didn’t I worry I was too old for that?)

So many women confided they newly had, or would soon have, the freedom and time to travel…. They were intrigued by my travels. They wanted to hear where I went, what I did, and how I pulled it off. So this site is for them, and for you if you’re in those shoes. 

Whether you’re over 40, in your 50s, or 60 or 70, if you’ve wanted to travel the world but feel you don’t even come close to having the money to do so, maybe you actually can. 

What if…  you changed your perception of travel from vacation to experience — and found you really could pull it off?

Part of my own method was to stop renting an apartment. (My landlord needed it back so I made lemonade and fulfilled my hopes of traveling again.) Absent my apartment, I turned my rent money into travel money. It costs less to rent a dorm bed or a room in almost any place in the world than it did for me to rent my LA apartment any given night! I don’t have rental income as you might, but I continue to do my regular job from wherever I am. If you have a home you can rent it out and that rent could be your travel money. Or you can house swap.

You don’t have to be wealthy or well-off! You can do it!

If my travels…

If my travels inspire you to come out into new places and experiences — fabulous!

If my travels are good reading and bring you into my life to share it and learn from it — great.

If you cannot travel physically, traveling vicariously is the next best thing, so I hope I do a good job of making people’s lives real for you.

PS: Here’s some great inspiration — All The Places You Will Go — from Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka Dr. Suess!
