“Baby boomers”, “empty nesters”, “silver surfers”, call us what you will. We travel, when we can and where we can.
Maybe it's just a local day trip, enjoying a meal and a walk by a canal. Perhaps it's a long haul to Hermanus, or a quick week in Switzerland. Wherever it may be we enjoy finding places where we can do the out of the ordinary.

Can you travel? We travel when and how we can. People express envy sometimes. Read about how WE manage it as "older travellers".

No visit to London with overseas visitors is complete without a visit to Camden Market. These are a couple of street views as you arrive at Camden Town.
Just Mountains. In Switzerland. In Switzerland it's hard to get away from the mountains. After all it is Switzerland. Here are a couple of photos.
Business trips aren't always the best for photo opportunities. Given the right hotel and a sunrise, with camera in hand, here's a nice sunrise in Leeds.
In the mountains it is easy to forget, until you get there, that the sun effectively goes down behind the mountains well before the proper sunset. A few clouds or vapour trails, and a...
A little visit to London. Camden Market at sundown - it's always a great place to visit and nice to sit in one of the pubs as the day turns into evening.
