Travel brings a sense of delight and wonder that never stops no matter what age you are… and it is the crown jewel of retirement. In this day and age, travel can mean almost anything you want it to -- from world wide tours to a weekend in the mountains. 

We'll focus a lot of attention on travel because we have a passion for it. But we won't do it in a conventional way -- you can get typical trips on other websites. Instead, we'll cover topics and ideas that you won't find anywhere else, to take you a little off the beaten track, but not so much as to make such trips more work than pleasure.
