A place for geezers, grey hairs, and oldies to discuss independent travel. Reminisce about travel in the days before Lonely Planet and discuss issues applicable to the mature traveller.

My husband and I have a passion for travel we returned from our 12 month rtw trip last June and are now off again for 4 months travelling round Europe. We are not 5* travellers, we camp and sleep in our car enjoying the thrill of seeing all the different countries and wouldn't change anything.
I just so love being retired, the freedom to do whatever you want.

We have LOVED being semi-retired since 1985 when we were 30 years old but it's NOT for everyone as each day we wake up we're free to do most anything we feel like doing. Some people find living without structure and routine difficult and stressful. I gues the saying,"Different strokes for different folks" applies.
Feel FREE to ask us questions about living, relocating & traveling in the Philippines; learn more by visiting our website.
