Boomer Couple Helping Others Travel Smarter,
While Learning About Wine, Food, & Other Cultures

Our passion is for travel! We travel whenever and wherever we can. We enjoy writing as a team and separately.
Our goal is to share our adventures with others so that they can get the most out of their own travel. We give readers ideas on where to travel and how to get the most value for their time and money. This isn’t about how to travel on a budget, but how to travel smart!

WHY TRAVEL

Why do you travel? What’s your favourite part of travelling? We are often asked these questions. People travel for different reasons, and the answers can vary widely. It might be for rest and relaxation, family commitments or work. When we talk to people about travel, we often hear things like, ” We can’t afford to travel,” because of time, cost or both.

Close to Home

Travel doesn't have to mean going hundreds of kilometres from home. Day trips can be quite affordable. You might be surprised with the stuff to do in your hometown or within a few hours’ drive.

World Travel

For many, the word travel creates visions of flying to a destination far from home. Whether you choose a prepackaged trip or plan something on your own, each day can be an adventure. Travel can include learning something new, going on an adventure, or having a unique experience with family and friends or even alone.

How to Travel

When we travel, we try to take the time to use our five senses. The sights, sounds, smells, etc. of a new or familiar place can create many discoveries. Learn strategies on what to do and what not to do.
