Hi! I'm Susan. I'm glad you're here!

Before starting this site, I scoured the internet for blogs I related with and what I found was most adventure travel blogs were written by and for 20-somethings. There were sites for retirees too, but those took a slower pace. I wondered, where are the sites for active travelers sandwiched in between those two groups.

Let’s face it, over 40 travelers, with the constraints of kids, grandkids, aging parents, and often jobs that hinder a nomadic lifestyle, may not be as freewheeling as these other segments. 

But that doesn’t mean we don’t love to travel. We enjoy cruising, luxury getaways, and multi-generational vacations. And, you know what? We like a bit of adventure mixed in with our globetrotting. 

We can be found ziplining through the Yucatan jungle, riding ATVs in Puerto Penasco, soaring high above the ground in hot air balloons in Cappadocia, kayaking among shipwrecks in the Potomac River, and shredding the trails on a Mountain Bike in Pennsylvania. We’re killin’ it!!

Hopefully, Gen X Traveler inspires you to get out, see the world and live your adventure within the limits of an already full life.
