WHOA! Do You Ever Feel Invisible?

Exciting news! I am honored to have been chosen to be a debut video partner of WHOA! Network, an exciting new online video network dedicated to bringing out the best in women “of a certain age.”

Here’s the scoop (and you can say you heard it here first!):

WHOA! Network has a simple concept at its core: Women should be seen and heard at every age and valued more as we get older, not less.

Makes sense, right?

Yet that’s not the case. In our… CONTINUE READING >>

Are Travel Agents Worth the Bother?

The nature of our travel style – what we call “traveling low to the ground” – does not conjure up images of luxury hotels, first class airline tickets and limousines. And for good reason. It’s not that we’re opposed to these things, in fact we quite like them, we just can’t see forking out the money for perks that don’t feel so perky when it comes time to pay the bill.

Today, they are best-known as the Gypsy Nesters — the married-for-almost-three-decades couple who gave up their brick-and-mortar home for a virtual home on the road. They are semi-retired boomers who roam the globe full-time, approaching each day as an adventure and celebrating the freedom of being unshackled from the responsibilities of parenthood.

Their motto: Our only plan is to not have a plan.
