Older, and occasionally wiser - hostels, food and budget travels
All About Peaceful Nomads
Young At Heart, and Old In the Knees
Thank you for stopping by our site. We hope you enjoy what we have to say, and our perspective on travel and the experiences we get to have. We are privileged we get to travel and meet different people from different cultures. We've written more in the "About" section if you are interested - for now we're working on content and getting videos up and running. We don't travel as much as many of the travel writers on the Internet since we are still working day jobs, but when we do travel we make a point of staying in family run hostels and pensions (guest houses).
We come at this with a social conscience and endeavour to be conscientious tourists - ones that contribute to the communities we visit and give back as much as possible. We are always mindful of where we spend our money so that it is going back to the community we are visiting; in this way communities continue to thrive and there is something unique for future travellers. That is the gist of our journey. Welcome, and thanks for stopping by.
