My name is Maryanne and I, like many people, love to travel.
I have been reading countless blogs created by young twenty or thirty something, skinny, beautiful women who look like they’ve leapt from the pages of magazines. I didn’t see many blogs showing 50+, overweight, solo, independent female travellers so here I am to show you that we can explore and have those adventures too. I may not have run up Kilimanjaro but I made it up by putting one foot in front of the other – slowly but surely.
These days I like to take things easy but be assured I still have a curiosity for the unknown and the exotic. I think I have watched too many movies that have peppered my imagination like Murder on The Orient Express, Out of Africa, Lawrence of Arabia and the Indiana Jones movies.
I love to travel solo as it suits my tendency for lingering and I can suit myself with whatever I do. I also find more people are willing to speak to you when you are a party of one. Independent travel? Well I never was one for tours and such. I don’t travel in luxury, in fact my next trip is scarily underfunded. I do, occasionally, like to splash out on a nice hotel but this is a rare occurrence.
Anyway, enough of me for now. Let’s see what happens…. Let the games begin!
