With spring travel beckoning and my wanderlust in overdrive, what better time for this wander boomer woman to launch a new travel blog? Wordsworth might have “wandered lonely as a cloud,” but there’s no need for us to be lonely in our meanderings here. As traveling baby boomers, we want to have fun adventures that we can share with kindred spirits, don’t we? While some of you may be empty-nesters or childless by choice, grandparents of young children or boomerang parents, I myself am a married baby boomer mom to a tween, otherwise known as She Who Will Not Be Photographed. No matter. For you and me, our travel lust binds us together.
I hope you’ll join me as I make my way through jungles and swamps, over mountains and deserts, through my neighbor’s backyards, and across the vast unexplored terrain of teen traveler, and other, landscapes. By this stage of our lives, many of us are well-worn travelers so expect a bit of reflection in my blogs on roads already taken and those to come. Let’s tighten our seatbelts and hang on. Undoubtedly, there are roadbumps ahead, but as Dr. Seuss so aptly enthused: Oh, the places we’ll go!
