About the January Traveller


Two or three years ago I turned 50. That’s a big milestone in itself but what I hadn’t been prepared for was trying to celebrate in January. My birthday falls in that dreary part of January when it is cold and wet, the sales are on their last reductions, and people seem to be still recovering from Christmas. It felt as though I should be doing more to celebrate the milestone and life generally. In that year I decided to do 50 nice things. And so I had lots of interesting things to get to experience during the year which was awesome.

Now  I plan to do the number of things according to my age every year. Some are big like a journey somewhere whilst others are small. I thought it would be fun to share them and give other people an idea or 52 for a special occasion. And so January Journeys commenced.

This blog highlights the experiences I have through the year and includes travel, reviews and much more. The sort of things the over 50 age group might like to do from luxuriating in a spa to climbing a mountain. Many things are done solo too so hopefully the blog will inspire the solo over 50 traveller.

Have a read, look around the site and if you think I should put something down on the list to visit or review- contact me.
