In 2010, we left our business and home to start traveling together full time. This wasn’t anything new to us; we’d been working and traveling together for nearly four decades. For thirty years, we worked together in publishing. (Those publications included City Pages, Minnesota Parent, The Rake magazine, Secrets of the City guide book, and others.) Before that, we lived in Spain and taught English. Now we exercise our writing and photography chops by sharing travel stories on Travel Past 50.
Our readers and followers are our travel inspiration, motivating us to travel and share our collection of stories and images. We concentrate on destinations and experiences many in our age group desire: historic sites, national parks, cities and cultural destinations, food and drink, active travel, and personal connections. We also contribute practical information and resources to promote an easy-going travel lifestyle. In short, we provide content geared for mature, active, and inquisitive travelers.
