My name is John. I live in the Mountains of Central Arizona in a town called Dewey outside of Prescott. I am an Arizona native but have lived in 22 states and three countries.
I love to travel and am traveling still. I wish to share my travels through my blog and on one of my last trips I did some blogging but got frustrated and also became disappointed because I was not consistent. I will be seventy in February and I hope to convince, inspire, help people “of a certain age or time in life” that one need not sit in front of the TV and wait to die. To that end I will post some experiences and tips such as how to get cheaper flights without a lot of hassle and how to pack light.
On my last trip I spent two who days learning the Bangkok transportation system so on this trip I will use it from the airport to my hotel rather than having to take a taxi. I will be sharing some information like that. Also what an older person traveling alone needs to think about so as not to become a target of scammers, muggers, and things we didn’t think about when we were 25 years old.
I am proud and lucky to be an American but I have learned through my travels that there are lots of wonderful countries and the world in full of great people that wonderful to meet and talk to.
The biggest thing I hope to do is just keep my mind active and share some experiences and photos of great places.
