Hi, We're Ken and Cally Hardaker. We're 50 something empty nesters who love traveling. But when we're not on the road we are at home in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia - a fabulous place to live. The central message of our blog is that older travelers (we've called this the 50 and overs for want of a better description) can travel independently, just as younger travelers do. With a bit of planning and a few handy tools, you can do it on a budget, and go to places you thought you could only go to on an organized group trip.
