About Zoonie Travel

Zoonie is me.

This web site is a labor of love. I started it because I don’t see a lot of travel sites that are aimed at people over 50. Of course, most of what you’ll find on ZoonieTravel will appeal to everyone.

I am a retired broadcaster, husband, father, and grandfather who loves to travel.

The world is an amazing place, and I want to see as much of it as I can, while I’m still able to get around. I created this site to share stories and travel deals.

When I travel, I tend do it as cheaply as possible, and I try to get everything into a backpack. But, you reach a point in your life where the things you could do at 20 or 30 you can no longer do, or you just choose not to do. At 20 or 30 I wouldn’t hesitate to backpack on the cheap and stay in a dorm room at a hostel. Now, I’d rather have my own room and my own bathroom.

My posts will try to address a range of comforts from a hostel to a nice hotel, from an adventurous outing to something that can be accomplished by someone with limited mobility, and everything in between.

Thanks for stopping by.

Remember, you’re never too old to see the world!
