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

Before starting this site, I did my research. What I found was most travel blogs were written by and for 20-somethings and retirees. I thought, well, what about Generation X?  So here we are. A travel blog for our generation.  Hopefully, GenXTraveler inspires you to get out and see the world without delay!!
If you are looking for reassurances that you are not the only Gen Xer traveling or are looking for ways to work travel into your life, I suggest you sign up for my email newsletter. This will provide you with exclusive content before any one else sees it.
