At Joyful Journeying, we show folks over 50 how to nourish their desire for travel and embrace a future filled with fun and adventure!
2016 will mark our fourth year of almost continuous travel. We have traveled across the United States and Canada, in Asia, Oceana and Central America.
We have learned many lessons on making our meager travel budget go further, the most affordable places to live, and much more.
We are looking forward to visiting Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Columbia in the near future. And we have our sights set on Europe too!
We are just regular folks like you. In 2012, our California home of 12 years dropped in value by half. So we sold it and everything that didn’t fit into our Toyota Corolla and took the biggest risk of our lives. We began a life of travel and adventure.
If you have the heart of an adventurer, begin exploring what we have to share below:
