Well before the advent of the internet, one used travel guides in the form of (heavy) books, such as “Let’s Go France” or “$25 a day in France”. You looked up an area, checked out some of the hotels and restaurants that were written about and off you went.
Oh, have times (and prices) changed! Sure there are still guidebooks that everyone uses, but the internet has now become your library to help you plan your travels and I am proud to be a guest contributor on the newly launched, online website, GettingOnTravel.com. I’ll be joining 19 other well-established writers who will be sharing information for luxury travellers over the age of 50.
For those not quite near this age, I can promise you that the content will be inspiring and provide you with lots of ideas for your future travels. “The world is your oyster” and it is aptly reflected in this new site, which was founded by award-winning writers, Irene S. Levine and Janice Mucalov who run successful websites in their own right (MoreTimeToTravel and SandInMySuitcase). They have created a website that explores travelling in these areas:
- Destinations and experiences
- Cruise, hotel and spa reviews
- Wine, spirits, and food
- Hot-off-the-press travel news and tips; and
- Book and gear reviews
As Irene has stated:
All our stories are curated to address the needs and sensibilities of our niche readers—a diverse group who want to be defined by their interests and passions rather than by their age, a group who has long graduated from backpacks and hostels, a group who appreciates luxury but is still mindful of value.
France And More
I invite you to explore this wonderful online travel magazine. I have found the articles and insights to be perfect resources for my travels. (There’s a great article by Penny Sadler on my favourite French wine, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, so be sure to check out that article).
I will be contributing some new content on France as well as providing readers with insight into some of the posts on this site. My latest contribution[Easy-To-Find Happiness In France] highlights a post I wrote about on FInding Your Happy Place In France.
I hope you will check out GettingOnTravel and share the website with those who are searching for a travel destination idea or need some inspiration.
