    Are you afraid to take your first trip with our group or anyone else? Many women admit yes.  Women of our age have surmounted  first steps and survived, often with a terrific high and new self importance.

    First day of school?  I was 5 and it was first grade in a New York public school: Public School 9.   I recall the teacher clearly: a nice middle aged Mrs. Levine with a soft voice and tricks to get us engaged.

  • Gene Autry and Your Next Trip? Watch here and share with other women

    We recently received a call from a the woman said: I have not traveled since my husband died and I think it is time to GET BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN. Her reference to the vintage Gene Autry song had us hunting on utube, to hear him sing. We realized that her reference meant something only to women of a certain age.  Autry appeared in 93 films, and between 1950 and 1956 hosted The Gene Autry Show television series. We, of that age, remember him from his Christmas songs and his straight shooting brave and honest roles.

  • LOW and NO Tech Travel Hints- for Women Travelers

    Each time I see an article about travel technology, my brain melts. Most of us, of a certain age, are just not interested in technology. Yes, we want a smartphone that works, wifi information and maybe a GPS. Beyond that, we just want a written document with all the details of our trip.

    If you do not know how to operate your phone, stop right here and go to the Apple Store or wherever you bought it and learn basics.
