Old Hippies Hit the Road

Off to EuropeSearching and researching a title for a travel blog is tough work.  My original idea was “Old Hippies Hit the Road”, my daughter christened us old hippies, but it doesn’t really fit. Then came “Bluenoser Travel” until I looked up the definition of Bluenoser (which is defined as a puritanical person-I always thought it meant from Nova Scotia!).  Other titles I tried included:  Frugal Traveller (taken), Inspired Wanderer (taken), Exhilarated Excursions (not really descriptive of my travel style).  After several days, I opted for The Inspired Packer.  Whether you are travelling for a few days in your own province or thousands of miles away, packing signals the start of your journey.

This site is about travel.  Something I am passionate about.

If you are under 30 and your travel style involves hiking for days in the wilderness and pitching a tent where-ever you fetch up, this site probably isn’t for you.  I’m not into that much adventure.

If you are over 30 and your travel style involves staying at 5 star hotels, using taxis and local guides, this site may not hold many answers for you.  5 star hotels can be nice, but I usually don’t have that much money to spend.

But, if your are moderately active, seek low-cost travel experiences and are not afraid to climb aboard local transport and discover a place on your own, you may find answers here.

  1. I have the feeling that the two of you share the same travel philosophy and dreams as The Viking and I 🙂 I had a look at your blog, and yes, you have us dreaming 🙂 Keep up the good work!

  2. Thanks, I think I will look up the world heritage sites and start dreaming of our next trip. I’ll be checking out your site for ideas in Europe. Maybe we will run into each other “on the road” someday.

  3. I love the title and looks like I’m part of the pack since I’ll be 41 next month. I believe no age limit is required to seek life’s adventure, to travel and have fun, to embrace happiness and everything that is there to rejoice. A toast to us and to all that chose to journey a path of great adventures. Have a lovely day!
