Adventure Travel For Over 40s

I'm Jenny and I'm an over 40s (OK 50s) traveller. My travel style is mostly budget oriented and I've been travelling for over 30 years. I've done travel trips from just one night to 20 months on the road and I'm sure I have info that will help you get the most from your next adventure.

I'm going to show you some gorgeous destinations, tell you some amazing stories & give you heaps of tips and tricks on how I manage to travel globally on a pretty tight budget.
